TYR Tactical

44,639 SF | Manufacturing Facility  | Peoria, Arizona

TYR manufactures tactical body and vehicle armor for law enforcement, military, and private contractors. This building is Phase II of a four Phase development. The adjacent building on site is the Phase I facility with 75,000 SF of warehouse and distribution space. This project consists of a 34,498 SF manufacturing space for armoring production. Two highly specialized presses were imported from France, weighing 7,700 tons each and capable of producing 22,000 psi of pressure. The remainder of the building is for research and development.

The building design reflects the Phase I facility and shares a common driveway and vehicle parking. The building is constructed of concrete tilt wall panels with accents of exposed steel girders, ribbed steel panel screen walls, and prefinished metal panels at the main entrance.
