We love cool technology. Reactor was founded to bring cool technology to the shooting sports realm. Here are some of the principles we follow at Reactor to make it happen.
1. KEEP IT SIMPLE
Products, interfaces, instructions, websites, apps… Whatever we build for our customers, we want it simple. If you think our product is too complicated, let us know why.
2. KEEP IT USA
In this industry, USA-made matters. Every line of code we write, every part we machine, and every chip we fabricate is all made in the USA. Today’s economic climate is all over the place and we know that we’d rather do business with a company that we can easily walk through the doors of and see what we’re paying for.
We hope you appreciate our efforts.
Obvious disclaimer: Sometimes electronics parts are near-impossible to source from the USA because no one in the USA makes one within our parameters (think super tiny computer chip parts, USB cables, chemicals, some batteries, etc.). For these, we have to order outside the US but we do our best to test the quality before we use them in a product.
3. KEEP IT DATA-DRIVEN
A huge part of our philosophy is avoiding the pitfalls of thinking that we know best. We rarely act on speculation, rather, we rely on the market data, customer feedback, and other metrics to figure out where to go next. We would be fools to think we know what the next 10 years of technology and the shooting sports looks like.
