Las Veagas, NV --(AmmoLand.com)- In the hectic days between the NASGW Annual Expo and January’s SHOT Show, it’s easy to somewhat overlook the true recognition deserved by NASGW’s 2009 award-winning manufacturer members.

With the exception of the Chairman’s Award for Industry Leadership (2009 winner – NSSF) each of NASGW’s category achievement awards are made on the basis of detailed member distributor input. NASGW’s balanced appraisal process identifies the best of the best by recognizing top performers based…. and association/industry support. Here’s another look….

For the second year in a row, the NASGW Award for Accessory Manufacturer of the Year went to Birchwood Casey.

Acknowledging their commitment to distributors, VP Mike Wenner said “…they’re an extension of us. We all succeed because we’re on the same team.”

The award for Firearms Manufacturer of the Year went to Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. “We rely on two-step distribution for 100% of our sales,” said Chris Killoy, VP of Sales and Marketing. Notably, Ruger is a three-time winner of the award and Killoy credits the open lines of communication between distributors, reps and Ruger as a vital element in their success.

Winchester Ammunition, 2009 winner of the Ammunition Manufacturer of the Year award succeeded in managing explosive growth to maximum benefit under strained industry-wide capacities.

“It was all about fair play,” said Brett Flaugher, VP of Marketing and Sales, making sure every distributor got product during the year. “Maybe not everybody was happy, but they were satisfied knowing they got their fair share,” added Flaugher.

Awards are won over time – and the start of our 2010 membership year is a great time to again thank and congratulate the winners and encourage all you deal with to make it a point to be in the running in 2010. For more information on Award criteria, contact Tracy Kolojeski at tkolojeski@nasgw.org.
