Otis Technology Acquires DRD Tactical
Otis Technology has acquired the tactical rifle brand, DRD Tactical.
Each DRD Tactical rifle is designed around three key characteristics – discreet, reliable and precise. They specialize in a patented Quick Take Down rifle that ensures the utmost 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,” says Larry Williams, CEO for Otis Technology. “Our technology and the base of our product line was built on innovation and it’s a key pillar of our values today. 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.”
Jim Brooker, Vice President Engineering for Otis Technology’s dedicated R&D Facility located in Phoenix, NY stated: “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.”
DRD prides itself on designing and building firearms in the United States and 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, an industry leader in firearm cleaners, lubricants and protectants.
