(GunAuction.com) Taurus USA has acquired Heritage Manufacturing, Inc. of Opa Locka, Florida. Terms of the transaction are undisclosed.
Heritage Manufacturing, a specialty maker of single-action revolvers, was founded in 1992 by Jay Bernkrant and his wife, Maria Diaz. Featuring the Rough Rider 22 LR and 22 Magnum combo revolver, Heritages competitive price points mirror the Taurus position of affordability in the marketplace.
Bernkrant, president/owner of Heritage Manufacturing, said Heritage and Taurus have always had a long, family-like relationship. We share the same family-based values and deep-rooted desire to bring the best products to the most people.
The Heritage name and brand will continue to be marketed as a standalone while receiving support
of Taurus management efforts and distribution.
Mark Kresser, president and CEO of Taurus USA, said, This acquisition is a great complement to our Taurus and Rossi products; a perfect fit with our growth strategy to acquire and partner with companies that share our core competency of affordably priced firearms for all shooters.
