In the last 22 years, Crimson Trace has built an unimpeachable reputation for building the world’s finest intuitively activated laser sighting systems. The firm is based in Oregon, and 100 percent of its employees are NRA members.
In an official statement, James Debney, Smith & Wesson President and Chief Executive Officer said, “Crimson Trace provides us with an exceptional opportunity to acquire a thriving company that is completely aligned with our strategy to become a leader in the market for shooting, hunting and rugged outdoor enthusiasts. As the undisputed leader in the market for laser-sighting systems, Crimson Trace serves as an ideal platform for our new Eletro-Optics Division.”
Lane Tobiassen, who joined Crimson Trace in 2005, will serve as president of that new division. The workforce and management team will remain in Wilsonville, Ore., after the acquisition.
