In February of 2010, Brigadier General Ronald Bailey, USMC, stated that Tech Systems, Inc. "facilitated the improvement of over 11,722 pieces of gear which saved the Battalion 1.4 million dollars in fabric repair costs. [Tech Systems, Inc.] efforts enabled the Recruits of the Marine Corps Recruit Depot, San Diego to continue their rigorous field training without delay, and significantly contributed to our mission of making Marines."
