Store InsideSt. Charles, MO — Law enforcement and tactical gear manufacturer Propper International is opening a new showroom inside their St. Charles County headquarters to serve the local law enforcement community.

The new 2,000 square foot facility is adjacent to the in-house Design Lab located inside Propper’s corporate headquarters at 17 Research Park Drive in the Missouri Research Park, at the corner of I-64 and Highway 94 in Weldon Spring.


We want to offer a place where local law enforcement can browse and check out not just our products, including Class B uniforms, but many other LEO necessities such as holsters, duty belts, and pouches,” said Mark Marino, territory manager for the St. Louis area. “We are also expanding our offering soon to include flashlights, gloves, knives, and other gear.”

The showroom opens December 15 with a Holiday Welcome Event open to the public from 9:00am-4:00pm.

As a former police officer, Marino knows firsthand what officers look for in gear. “Propper’s law enforcement products fit what patrol officers, detectives, and SWAT teams need on an everyday basis – from shirts, pants, and boots to concealed and tactical armor.”

QuotesIn addition to a wide range of apparel and gear options, the new showroom will offer embroidery, hemming, and other services for local departments.

Started in 1967 by William S. Propper, the company’s first contract was making the iconic white Dixie Cup hats for the US Navy. Over the next five decades, Propper grew to become the largest supplier of military BDUs and ACUs. Building on its success as a military supplier, Propper added a commercial division in 1991 and today has a strong presence in the law enforcement and civilian tactical industries with offerings that include men’s and women’s tactical pants and shirts, jackets, boots, everyday carry bags, backpacks, and a full selection of NIJ-certified concealed and tactical body armor, including the innovative 4PV 4-panel vest line.
