A company at the beginning
In 1957 the entrepreneur Gisberto Pellegrini founded Radar1957, initially devoting himself to tanning and leather production, an art that in Tuscany has ancient roots, handed down since the mid-1800s by the Masters Pellettieri. From the meeting of tradition and modern technology, a solid industrial reality is born, able to enhance the craftsman's work by creating functional products of high manufacturing quality.
Extension of production
Thanks to the vision of many entrepreneurial choices, in 1962 the activity extends to the production of hand-finished items for short weapons, ranging from armed forces equipment to accessories for the military, sports and hunting sectors.
Cordura product development
During the '80s, in reaction to changes in the market, the production of short weapon holsters developed in materials alternative to leather like Cordura, able to guarantee better performance requirements. In the following 90s, with the introduction of thermoforming, a flexible production of performing and customizable products began.
Development of products in Kydex
The use of polymeric materials such as ABS and Kydex has allowed us to improve the performance capabilities of the retention systems incorporated in the products, demonstrating once again the ability to adapt the company to new technological discoveries and changes of the market.
Radar in 3 words: experience, evolution, innovation
In recent years production has expanded to injection molding, employing different materials according to needs, such as nylon 6.6, fire-retardant bled PVC, polycarbonate and carbon polymer granules.
