Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. has been presented with the Firearms Manufacturer of the Year award by the National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers.

The award was present to Ruger Vice President of Sales and Marketing Chris Killoy at the Association's 39th Annual Meeting. It marks the sixth consecutive year that Ruger has received the award.

NASGW Wholesaler members evaluate the performance of manufacturers on distribution policy, marketing, sales and promotion, logistics and operations, and NASGW and industry support.

"We are extremely pleased and grateful to receive this award once again," Killoy said. "We continue to strive to meet the needs of independent wholesalers and the demands of their customers, the retailers and consumers, through development and timely delivery of innovative new products. We also focus on marketing promotions and communication tools that will benefit distributors of Ruger firearms as strong wholesaler support and cooperation are vital to our success. We thank NASGW members for their continued business and support."
