Cleveland, OH -(AmmoLand.com)- May, 2016 marks the 20th anniversary of Pyramyd Air. The world's largest internet airgun retailer celebrates its growth from a basement operation of three people in 1996, into a multi-million-dollar company employing more than 60 people.
Twenty years after purchasing his first shipment of air rifles from England, Pyramyd Air CEO, Joshua Ungier recalls the struggles of
“In order to expand I needed a lot more money, so naturally I went to the bank seeking a loan. When I told the bank manager what I needed the money for he simply stared at me. At that point I knew it was futile and I would need to find a different way.”
Ungier approached his wife, and after borrowing from her, he outgrew his basement and moved to a small warehouse.
“Within a few years I moved to a larger warehouse, then another. Twenty years and 60,000 square feet later, we're a far cry from my basement,” he said.
“Building an environment that provides good lives for my people and their families has been an honor,” says Ungier. “We celebrate together, we mourn together and we play together, but above all we value the voice of our customers and strive to provide them with superior customer service, provocative products, and a staff of experts that provide a resource of knowledge that is second to none regarding every single product we carry.”
When asked what the next 20 years will bring, Ungier adds, “I assure you, you'll be in for more exciting products, more fun and definitely more surprises.”
