In 1981, I had a vision ... to produce durable leather products for law enforcement that would stand the test of time for safety and reliability. Now, over 25 years later, AKER leather products can be seen as the first choice for the California Highway Patrol, U.S. Customs and Border Protection; NCIS, FBI Academy, Honolulu PD, U.S. Navy, the U.S. Postal Service, the Los Angeles Police Dept. and the San Francisco Police Dept., to name just a few among the many satisfied customers nationwide and world wide who wear AKER.
Our research and development department continually strives to come up with new items in line with the ever-changing technology in the field. But what doesn't change is the superior quality of the highest grade top grain leather, thread, dyes and hardware which go into our products. Each individual item is hand-made in our factory in the U.S.A. using traditional old-world craftsmanship combined with stringent quality control and painstaking attention to detail.
These factors have made AKER a leader in the law enforcement community. However, in addition to the expertise of our employees, our success would not have been possible without the dedication of our loyal dealers, distributors and both our on duty and off duty customers who have bought AKER leather products these many years. From one man's vision has come a company dedicated to the law enforcement community, a company whose products are relied upon for their safety and durability and at the same time, have the right look, the right feel, and the right price ... AKER.
