Peoria Councilmember Denette Dunn recognized and awarded TYR Tactical as the Pine District’s business of the year for 2020.
TYR Tactical owners Jason and Jane Beck were recognized for their contribution to the economic well-being and quality of life in Peoria and the Pine District.
The family-owned business uniquely focuses on tactical gear for special operations forces worldwide, federal agencies, and law enforcement locally and internationally.

The new jobs will also include individuals affiliated with Arizona Industries for the Blind, integrating the talent and skills of those who are impaired.
Ms. Dunn said TYR Tactical is dedicated to economically impacting the City of Peoria, and the company is also committed to supporting a great number of local charitable organizations.
