In August 2020, Sunflower Bank provided credit commitments and treasury solutions to TYR Tactical LLC (“the Company”) and its real estate holding company, AGL Properties LLC.

TYR Tactical is a specialty product company that develops and manufactures comprehensive best-in-class body armor and load carriage solutions to special operations forces, US military, various US government agencies, state and local law enforcement, foreign military and government organizations and commercial interests. Headquartered in Peoria, AZ, TYR Tactical is also an industry leader in Canada and provides 100% US and Canadian-made products.

The Company’s management initially approached Sunflower Bank’s Scottsdale Commercial Lending team seeking fixed-rate equipment financing. Since the equipment purchase was only one part of a long-term strategic growth plan, Sunflower Bank requested the opportunity to review the full scope of TYR Tactical’s financing needs. By doing so, Sunflower Bank learned the Company’s current bank did not provide financing with the requested terms and timeline.  After a thorough analysis, Sunflower Bank was able to structure a complete financing solution that meets the Company’s desired timeline and consolidates the entire project, including real estate and construction financing, within the bank without requiring external participation.
