O.F. Mossberg & Sons, Inc., America’s oldest family-owned and operated firearms manufacturer, was presented with the “2014 Innovator of the Year” Award during the 2014 National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesaler Expo in Little Rock, Arkansas. During the annual Awards Reception and Dinner, NASGW recognizes those manufacturers who contribute significantly to the successful business climate of its wholesale members. This is the second time that Mossberg has been recognized as Innovator of the Year, since the inception of this award in the 2012.
Mossberg recently announced increased manufacturing capabilities with the expansion of their Texas-based facility and bolstered several of their most-innovative firearm platforms in 2014, including 7.62mm (.308 Win) chamberings in their ground-breaking MVP Series of bolt-action rifles and new 20-gauge and 22LR offerings to their FLEX System of shotguns and rifles.
“Recognition for developing the most innovative products is a tremendous honor, particularly when this acknowledgement comes from our customers,” said Tom Taylor, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
Founded in 1919, O.F. Mossberg & Sons, Inc. is the oldest family-owned and operated firearms manufacturer in America, and is the largest pump-action shotgun manufacturer in the world.
