ONE IDEA – ONE TEAM
An in-house design team is constantly cooperating with the users of our products as well as our material suppliers. The selection of specific materials takes place with respect to meeting the highest demands in terms of functionality, resilience and security. With the benefit of constant input of men and women in active services, the practical demands asked of the products are optimally integrated into the manufacturing process during the phase of development.
From the initial prototypes all the way to articles ready for production, the products of TASMANIAN TIGER are conceived and developed in-house and manufactured in our own production plant. In this way, we can intervene, change and enhance the products at every stage of manufacture. In our view, this is the only way to ensure the highest possible quality standards.
All manufacturing processes – from the purchase of materials and manufacture all the way to the final quality control – are precisely defined by us and controlled according to international standards.
Each single product is thoroughly inspected and tested before leaving the production plant. Each single product receives its own serial number and is stored as such in our database.
TASMANIAN TIGER constantly strives to extend its product range and to optimise existing articles so that we are able to offer our customers uncompromisingly good equipment in the future as well.
TASMANIAN TIGER – A FITTING NAME FOR US
The TASMANIAN TIGER – also called Tasmanian Wolf – was the largest carnivorous marsupial on the Australian continent. It was about the size of a small wolf and owes its name “TASMANIAN TIGER” to its striped coat which served as camouflage. The animal was a predator – not very fast but extremely persevering – and followed up on its prey at night, chasing it down until it was exhausted so it could finally snatch it. Equipped with a superior set of teeth and a mouth which it could open up to 180 degrees, the animal showed no mercy for its prey.
The TASMANIAN TIGER is said to be extinct on the Australian continent since the 1930s; the last species lived on the island of Tasmania. In 1966, a large sanctuary for animals had been opened so as to provide them with a retreat area, and to preserve the species in this way. Until today, no TASMANIAN TIGER has any longer been sighted, but quite a few people believe that the animal has managed to survive in this sanctuary, having escaped discovery until today ...
In this mythical legend, the specific attributes of the animal – will to survive, hunting instinct, perfect camouflage, cleverness, strength and perseverance – manifest itself. These attributes have prompted us to give our products the name TASMANIAN TIGER. The legend lives on!
