Otis Technology has acquired DRD Tactical, a specialist in tactical rifles.
DRD Tactical leads the market in the design and manufacture of tactical rifles. Each rifle is designed around three key characteristics – discreet, reliable and precise. They specialize in a patented Quick Take Down rifle that ensures high discretion when operators are traveling on covert operations. These rifles are designed for the military and law enforcement elite with a need for discreet carry.
“We are very excited for this opportunity. Our technology and the base of our product line was built on innovation and it’s a key pillar of our values today,” states Larry Williams, CEO for Otis Technology. He continues, “DRD Tactical fully embraces that innovative culture with industry-leading, patented rifle designs. We are extremely optimistic about not only the current product line, but what’s in development – as well as the huge potential in firearms and firearm accessories.”
“DRD Tactical complements with the Otis Technology brand very well. Not only is Otis’ mainstay firearm cleaning gear but we have an incredible facility with advanced manufacturing capabilities. The synergy here is twofold – allowing us to vertically integrate as well as develop new products,” remarked Jim Brooker, Vice President Engineering for Otis Technology’s dedicated R&D Facility located in Phoenix, NY.
DRD’s operations will continue in their facility in Georgia while sales, marketing and administrative support will be out of Otis headquarters in Lyons Falls, NY.
This is the second acquisition for Otis Technology in recent years. In 2018, Otis acquired Shooter’s Choice, the industry leader in firearm cleaners, lubricants and protectants.
