Introducing innovative Hampton Roads suppliers who shined bright at this year’s Warrior Expo EAST.

Each year, Atlantic Diving Supply, Inc. hosts the premier industry event Warrior Expo EAST, bringing together those looking to learn or test products & resources in the defense industry.

Present at the event annually are end users, program managers, and procurement specialists, all looking to learn, share, and purchase gear.

London Bridge Trading Co. at Warrior Expo EAST

Meet: London Bridge Trading Co.

Headquartered in Virginia Beach, London Bridge Trading Co. is a diverse family of brands whose tactical nylon products are coveted by the U.S. military; Federal, State and Local Law Enforcement agencies; Foreign Governments and an array of foreign and domestic defense contractors.

“It’s just really valuable to have the time to sit with someone,” said Alex Millner, Marketing Director at LBT. “It’s a little more of a relaxed environment to discuss the gear, and you can cover a lot more.”

Milner said London Bridge has been a part of Warrior Expo for several years, adding that what makes the event even more beneficial is the unique ability to meet up with company partners and collaborate.

“There’s a lot of cross pollination with all of the companies we work with,” he said. “When we can all get together at events like this, it makes it easy.”

Thanks to local powerhouse London Bridge Trading for joining Atlantic Diving Supply at this year’s expo.
