Glock's Mid-Year Firearms Sales Strong – Reports Glock Executives
ATLANTA — -(AmmoLand.com)- With more than half a year in the books, handgun manufacturer Glock, Inc. announced that demand for their product has been unprecedented.
“We are seeing that certain categories of the firearms industry are severely depressed, and the companies who lack sales in those specific categories are finding their bottom line adversely affected,” commented Gary Fletcher, vice president of sales and marketing.
Glock asserts that its penetration in the law-enforcement market is “over 65%.” In the last eighteen months Glock has converted over 80 agencies in the United States from a single competitor. This success has carried over to the conversions of agencies from other competitors as well.
Also, the company's Federal Law Enforcement and Military segments continue to gain market share. Joshua Dorsey, vice president of operations and federal/military sales, said, “We have worked diligently with our contacts to make sure that the units that are outfitted with our product have the best equipment configured in the manner they specifically request. We stand ready to not only meet U.S. Government requirements, but to exceed them.”
The company recently won its second National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers Chairman's Award. Said Craig Dutton, director of commercial and law enforcement sales, “Being the recipient of this award is a culmination of the hard work and effort of the entire organization. Our employees are honored to be the recipient of this award that is voted on, and presented by, our customers.”
Glock is privately owned and has no debt on its books, according to company spokeswoman Shelley Decker.
