Redkoch, a company that provides training for the U.S. military and law enforcement units, is the newest tenant at the VIRginia Motorsport Technology Park, adjacent to the Virginia International Raceway in Alton.
The company, which provides training in areas of tactics, firearms and ground mobility, will move into a 10,000-square-foot space at the tech park for the next three years.
According to a news release issued by VIR, the track’s technical and high-speed driving circuits, NRA-approved shooting ranges, and off-road obstacle courses will allow the company to provide real-world training.
“We currently hold two five-year indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity government contracts so it’s vital we provide the most dynamic, relevant and realistic training for these military and federal law enforcement agencies,” Tim Rice, president and CEO of Redkoch, said in a statement. “Our location at VIR allows us to ensure we deliver effective and efficient training to these elite warriors at the greatest value to the government, and all with the convenience of being on property with our offices.”
Other tenants at the tech park include SOVA Motion and the National Tire Research Center operated by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute; Sasco Sports; Krause & Associates; the VIPER Engine and Drivetrain Lab and Wisko Race Engineering.
