FoxFury and John Bianchi announce alliance to redefine the look and feel of flashlight experience
Published on 13 January 2012
The legendary John Bianchi, CEO of Frontier Gunleather and founder of Bianchi International, and FoxFury Lighting Solutions announce an alliance to redefine the look and feel of the flashlight experience for all users.
The goal is to create the lighting tools of tomorrow using the latest technology along with old-school quality and craftsmanship. Come meet John Bianchi and Mario Cugini, CEO of FoxFury, at SHOT Show booth #26206 to learn about the new projects they'll be embarking upon.
John Bianchi has been a police officer, a military general, competitive shooter, author and THE authority on holsters. In addition, John also helped pioneer the tactical light market in 1975 with his robust Bianchi B-lite, which served as the predecessor to the modern police flashlight. Bianchi's D-cell powered B-lite and Super B-lite have influenced many of the police flashlights from the 1980s to modern day. John's influence to this day can be seen in the design of many holsters and the promotion of competitive shooting though the Bianchi Cup.
"I am excited to be working with FoxFury on the introduction of some great new products," said Bianchi.
Mario Cugini founded FoxFury Lighting Solutions in 2003 to revolutionize the lighting experience by offering a hands-free LED surfing light for recreational use. When Cugini learned of the unfilled niche lighting needs of first responders, he redirected the company's focus towards professional markets. FoxFury designs and manufacturers LED lighting solutions (including headlamps, area lights and flashlights) primarily for fire, law enforcement, military and industrial applications worldwide. FoxFury formed partnerships early on with top LED manufacturers including CREE and OSRAM. FoxFury was the first company to exclusively use LEDs in all lights in order to target the niche needs in professional markets.
"FoxFury is thrilled to be able to work together with John Bianchi. John and I are eager to give shape to our vision of a new type of flashlight that will feel like a natural extension of a person's hand," said Cugini.
John and Mario will be available at FoxFury's booth during SHOT #26206 to mingle with press, buyers and flashlight enthusiasts about their new relationship and the elements of the future product designs. SHOT Show will be held from January 17 to 20 at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas.
