The American-Turkish Council would like to welcome Ohio Ordnance Works as its newest Bosphorus Member. From 1981 to 1990, OOW engaged primarily in buying and selling military firearms, parts, and accessories in the commercial market. Qualified employees and manufacturing machinery were added which facilitated the development of a repair department and the ability to build small orders of firearms from scratch for the commercial market. Beginning in 1990, OOW began manufacturing firearms and ordnance for supply to different foreign and domestic government agencies. This capacity has expanded steadily over the years due to a wide base of weapon system knowledge, qualified personnel, state of the art machinery, new technology, and a commitment to excellence in both products and service. The ATC is excited about this partnership and looks forward to working with them closely moving forward.
