"This veteran-owned company is really badass. I love it. Dale and Renee have achieved the perfect balance of edge and substance." - Robert Herjavec
It all started between two friends; Renee Wallace and Dale King.
Dale is a veteran of OIF III & IV, owner of PSKC CrossFit , and co-founder of Team SAR. Renee is a single mother of 3 and a member of PSKC. In addition to raising three kids under the age of 10, Renee was making all natural lotions and hand creams for the female members of PSKC. One day Dale approached Renee about developing an all natural first aid ointment for the folks at the gym to use. In addition to making an ointment for the members of their gym, he wanted something that could help the athletes of Team SAR, and something rugged enough that his old military buddies could use to for the everyday first aid needs you encounter out in the field and on the range.
After some experimenting with the formula, the Doc Spartan® prototype was made. They immediately passed out samples to the members at PSKC and the feedback they received far exceeded their expectations. Since that time that time the duo has grown significantly even grabbing an appearance on Season 8 of Shark Tank in 2017. The team landed a successful deal with Robert Herjavec. A year landed one of his best deals he ever made in the history of the show.
The main purpose of the company is to help to their small town fight against poverty and addiction via commerce. They proudly manufacture, label, and ship out their products from their hometown in Portsmouth, Ohio. Additionally, they have partnered with a local counseling center to teach fitness to their clients. Upon graduation from the program, they are given training and employed at Doc Spartan.
