MISSION:

To come along side returning or transitioning veterans, to provide them with meaningful employment in the security industry, while providing a premium service to our clients.

VISION:

Our vision is to create a medium size private security company that can supply high end security to our clients while keeping our prices at the low end of the market. We have found a niche in the Cannabis Industry, a good match between our Veteran guards and the Community, but we are open to expansion into other industries as well.

Founders

Cory Morlan

When 9/11 happened, Corey knew he wanted to join the Marine Corps and go fight. Two years later he graduated high school and joined the Corps. Cory’s primary MOS was combat engineer. He thought this was a ton of fun. During his first tour in Iraq, an army infantry unit needed an engineer to go on
missions with them to mine sweep and dispose of IED’s where possible. Due to that experience, the second tour he was appointed as the lead .50 cal machine gunner for a convoy security team that escorted EOD around the country. He got to pick and train my own team of marines to be machine gunners as well. Cory spent his second tour in Iraq responding to 9 lines and providing security for convoys every other day. He ended up not being able to re-enlist and got out after 4 years. Then he spent 4 years as the Chief of Staff for a new security company, ended up leaving towards the end of 2016 because the dream and vision was not being pursued and followed any longer. Therefore, the VP and Cory both left that company and started ArmorFi together. The goal is to hire returning home Veterans and give them meaningful employment and a livable wage. Treat them like family and give them a great quality of life by filling the void they have from being out of the military. To replace that brotherhood. Armofi has the most qualified and trained guys in the industry. That’s fact, not propaganda.

Van Fredrickson

Van is a recently retired Police Officer with 22 years of service. He has been blessed in that time to have a wide range of training and experience. He worked as a SWAT operator, sniper, sniper team leader, School Resource Officer, defensive tactics trainer, academy trainer, field trainer for new hires, trainer of trainers at the National Law Enforcement Training Center, Narcotics Detective, undercover narcotics agent and instructor of undercover techniques and survival nationally. He has two awards for valor, as well as numerous other citations.

If there is an overriding theme to Van’s career it has been training. Each new challenge came with training for that position, then later as he got better at the job he became the trainer of others. Van brings that passion for training with him to ArmorFi. The people hired by ArmorFi have already been trained to the highest levels by the US Military, but Van is able to train them further to Law Enforcements’ standards. He enjoys the challenge of training them to use their pistol as their primary
weapon (something not normally done in the military), as well as training in control tactics that are the least likely to injure the suspect and the officer. Between the Law Enforcement training and the pre- existing Military training, Van believes that the personnel at ArmorFi represent the best of both worlds. And he truly enjoys the challenge of bringing the best out of them.
