Last year we established SOURCE Hydration USA to to work closer with our customers and partners and in real time, to better relationships and to establish new partnerships in the USA.
Source Hydration USA was established in early 2015. The new team was formed and immediately moved into its new 10,000 square foot office and distribution facility in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Virginia is an ideal location because of its proximity to the many military installations and government facilities.
Facilitating And Optimizing Visibility And Contact
From our new US HQ we have a better opportunity to attend and participate in military, government trade shows like, SOFIC, NGAUS, ADS as well as local Border Patrol and Law Enforcement venues.
Source Tactical Gear and Source Outdoor Hydration & Sandals
Additionally Source Hydration USA will distribute the Source Outdoor product line to retailers throughout the US, as well as handling all the fulfillment for Amazon and other on-line retailers. To that end, our team also attended the Outdoor Retailer Show, NBS, InterBike, Shot Show and several smaller regional trade shows. Our participation will grow substantially with more commitments for 2016 and beyond. We are looking forward to seeing you soon at one of the shows!

We spent two very inspiring and rewarding weeks in the US, presenting our 2014 products to the US professional audience (see last month’s preview here). Thanks to everybody who came to see us at the SHOT Show in Las Vegas or at the Outdoor Retailer Market Winter Show in Salt Lake!
SOURCE at SHOT in Vegas …
The SHOT Show in Las Vegas – the world’s largest and most important tradeshow in its field – is always a great place to be. Our new 2014 tactical gear received great appreciation and attention.
Also, of course, since SOURCE Tactical Gear is well known to professionals in the field (SOURCE Hydration Systems are supplied to and used by the US Marine Corps and other armed forces and law enforcement units).
… and at OR in Salt Lake
Just days later, our outdoor sales team presented our Source Hydration Systems, Packs and Footwear at the Outdoor Retailer Winter Show. As we are still building our brand in the US Outdoor market, we were very happy to see great interest from all sides, bloggers, professionals and stores, in our new 2014 products. We’re looking forward to be in touch!
In order to better serve the needs of our US based retailers, Source Hydration is excited to announce that The Craig Group will be taking over distribution of Source’s tactical hydration product line within the United States, starting August 1st, 2012.
With their head office in Virginia Beach, VA and fulfillment center in Rossville, Georgia, The Craig Group will be able to offer more responsive customer service and efficient ordering processes, as well as faster fulfillment of Source Hydration products, as they will be warehousing Source Hydration’s product line in their GA warehouse. In addition to improved customer service and order fulfillment, The Craig Group and Source Hydration will be launching an aggressive consumer based marketing campaign, starting in Fall 2012. More details to follow in the next few months.
The 2012 retailer price list will remain unchanged, with freight charges being based FOB Georgia. Current Source Hydration retailers are welcome to continue ordering from Source directly; however, after October 1st 2012 shipping charges will be based as FOB Haifa, Israel with the dealer paying for international shipping and customs brokering charges.
Amanda Shipley from The Craig Group will be the account manager for all Source Hydration related matters. As such, she will be contacting our present customers in the next few days to introduce herself to you and send the credit and dealer application paperwork along with the 2012 Source Hydration US retail price list for The Craig Group.
