Growing market share and building relationships with distributors
WARWICK, RI – ATW Companies, a leading provider of engineered metal manufacturing solutions, will be showcasing its ATW Defense brand’s firearms capabilities and expanding range of distributor relationships at the Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT Show) and Conference 2013, January 15-18, 2013, at the Sands Expo & Convention Center, in Las Vegas, NV. ATW’s subsidiary Parmatech, an industry leader of metal injection molding (MIM) for the firearms industry, will host the showcase at Booth 2025.
ATW Defense brings together the firearms engineering and manufacturing expertise of Parmatech, A.T .Wall/Metalform, and Judson Smith. Metalform’s manufacturing and fabrication operations were recently relocated to A.T. Wall’s Rhode Island plant. Their pistol magazine fabrication expertise is now fully integrated with ATW’s strong firearms and defense capabilities, which include precision CNC machining, MIM, laser cutting, precision metal tubing, and stamping. Customers are invited to stop by Booth 2025 to view ATW’s portfolio, which includes a wide variety of alloys for firearm manufacturing, MIM technology for high-volume/low-cost firearms components, and finished gun magazine accessories for both major gun manufacturers and the retail after-market.
Show participants are invited to join ATW at a wine tasting, to be held on Wednesday, January 16th, from 3:30 to 5:30 pm at the booth. The networking event will be an opportunity to sample wines from Sonoma County, where ATW subsidiary Parmatech is located, and learn more about how the consolidation and integration of ATW Defense’s capabilities supports the company’s vertical integration into the rapidly growing firearms and defense industries. Light refreshments will be served.
ATW Defense is expanding its selection of products available online, growing market share, and building relationships with a range of distributors, including Midway, Brownell, Armscor, and Cabela’s. “We are excited to showcase our expanded firearms offerings and capabilities and to highlight the growing list of top tier distributors with whom we are now working,” said Tracy MacNeal, ATW’s Chief Strategy Officer.
