I just received a press release saying that RUAG Ammotec, a Swiss firm, has just established a subsidiary in the United States.
It seems like they are more interested in law enforcement and government contract that they are in civilian sales. From the press release:
Precision Ammunition, established in 2001, holds extensive patents for their Copper-Matrix NTF® Non-Toxic Frangible bullet. Providing a healthier shooting environment, Copper-Matrix NTF is particularly well-suited for training law enforcement, military and security personnel, as well as being a perfect match for use in shooting ranges.
“RUAG Ammotec and Precision Ammunition are a perfect fit for each other and will drive forward RUAG Ammotec’s growth strategy worldwide by opening up new markets and strengthening individual product groups. The combination of innovative bullet design with large scale, high quality component production reflects the increasing demand for non-toxic frangible ammunition,” stated Cyril Kubelka, CEO of RUAG Ammotec and a member of the Executive Board of RUAG Holding AG. “Additionally, it establishes a US presence for the RUAG family of business to actively bid on US Government contracts.”
I hope they decide to sell to individuals in the future. They make some very interesting rifle and pistols round.
Just last week we discussed RUAG Ammotec on The Firearm Blog.
