Tier 1 Targets, LLC was established in 2017 in the small town of Grass Lake, Michigan as a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business ( SDVOSB ) that specializes in engineering research and development of reactive steel targets and range systems.
Tier 1 Targets was founded by United States Army Ranger Veteran & Mechanical Engineer Derek Jolly. Derek spent nearly six years as an Airborne Ranger in the United States Army’s 75th Ranger Regiment, and deployed to combat in support of the global war on terrorism six times. Following Derek’s Military service he earned a mechanical engineering degree from Florida Atlantic University and worked as a product design engineer in the automotive industry prior to starting Tier 1 Targets, LLC.
