COP® police equipment was brought into being in 1990 by Christian Hermann, at that time still an officer of a police special unit in Dachau, Bavaria, in order to provide colleagues with special equipment that was usually not available from the employer.
The practice-oriented range of goods soon met with the best response across the country via the mail order business.
The rapid growth required a spatial expansion of the COP® headquarters to Oberweilenbach in the city triangle of Munich, Ingolstadt and Augsburg in 2000. Here, warehouse and office space are spread over a total area of well over 3000 square meters.
In addition to the company headquarters in Oberweilenbach, there are currently 3 shops in Germany and 1 shop in Austria with a focus on large cities (Munich, Leipzig, Berlin, Vienna). Christian Hermann and his wife Ulrike Hermann, as managing directors with more than 25 employees in the COP® headquarters, look after the COP® branches as well as authorities, authorized specialist dealers in Germany and the EU - as well as their own COP webshop, Ebay shop and AMAZON Shop.
COP® owns the exclusive distribution rights in Germany, Austria and Luxembourg for large international companies such as SAFARILAND, BIANCHI, MONADNOCK, HATCH, FORENSICSSOURCE and Original SWAT.
Other brands in the range include: ADIDAS, REEBOK, UNDER ARMOR, CASIO, LEATHERMAN, LOWA, UFPro, NEXTORCH, NITECORE.
COP® participates very successfully in tenders and can call itself the market leader, especially in the field of safety holsters.
The target groups include: special units, police, federal police, customs, justice and the military, as well as security and rescue services, fire brigades, marksmen, hunters, outdoor enthusiasts and private individuals - although certain items are not for sale for all target groups.
The COP® brand is now internationally known for quality and practical orientation.
