Military Optics: Secure Storage Solutions
Inventory control of military equipment is important for a number of reasons. Readiness demands equipment is accessible at a moment’s notice and in good working order. Inventory shrinkage results in millions of dollars of loss or more each year across many industries. Ramifications of inventory shrinkage for military personnel can be devastating. Beside affecting troop safety and effectiveness, they also include loss of rank and salary, removal from command and possibly imprisonment and/or fine. In addition, the unlucky command may also be used as subject material for a blog on the importance of securing military equipment…
Take the recent theft at a military base last December. It is estimated that approximately $600,000 worth of military optics were stolen and an entire infantry company was placed in lockdown until the culprit(s) could be identified. Fortunately, the thief was arrested. Not so fortunate is the reality that military equipment, just like civilian property can be targets for the unscrupulous desires of dishonest persons. The relative ease with which the items were “liberated” is equally bothersome. However, all is not lost. Spacesaver has the solution.
