Crimson Trace, a manufacturer of laser sights and tactical lighting products for the firearms industry, received the Excellence in Accessory Manufacturing award for the second consecutive year from the National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers (NASGW).

The award was presented during the NASGW’s 40th Annual Meeting and Expo recently held in Dallas, Texas.

“Crimson Trace is honored to be recognized within the shooting sports industry for the many cutting-edge accessories we manufacture for the concealed carry and home defense markets,” said Crimson Trace President and CEO Lane Tobiassen.  “Our manufacturing team takes great pride in each and every product that is designed, manufactured, packaged and shipped from our facility. This award acknowledges their exceptional customer commitment.”

The NASGW awards the top accessory, ammunition, optics and firearms manufacturers that best demonstrate a commitment to distribution, value and service. Wholesaler members of the association evaluate the performance of manufacturers on four key criteria: distribution policy; marketing, sales and promotion; logistics and operations; and NASGW and industry support.

Crimson Trace, based in Wilsonville, Oregon, will celebrate 20 years of manufacturing and customer service in 2014.  All Crimson Trace products are made in the U.S.A.
