The following is a Land Warfare Resources Corporation Press Release:
CAMBRIDGE, MARYLAND – April 21, 2008 – LWRC International, LLC of Cambridge, Maryland announces the acquisition of substantially all of the assets of Land Warfare Resources Corporation of Springfield, Virginia, effective April 18, 2008.
LWRC International will be conducting business out of its new facility in Cambridge, Maryland. Richard Bernstein, formerly CEO of L-3 BAI Aerosystems, Inc. in Easton, Maryland, has been named as the new CEO of LWRC International. Mr. Bernstein brings over 40 years of experience in the design, development, and manufacturing of high-tech products for the defense industry. Darren Mellors and Jesse Gomez, formerly of Land Warfare Resources Corporation and Grenadier Precision Ltd. Co., will…
lead the product development and domestic marketing efforts, and Pat Bryan, former CEO, will be responsible for international marketing efforts.
The Cambridge facility includes complete engineering and production machining as well as its own injection molding capability to more effectively serve the market for its product line. The new facility provides the needed capacity for the company’s expansion.
Since 1999 Land Warfare Resources Corporation designed and manufactured what it considered to be the finest evolution of the M4/M16 system of rifles and carbines. Prior to 2006, most of its efforts were focused on research and development. It engineered a short stroke gas piston operating system to replace the direct gas impingement system of the M4/M16 family of weapons in use by the U.S. Military. This allows the weapon to operate cleaner, cooler and makes the rifles more reliable. LWRC International will implement the latest in manufacturing and materials technology, surface conversions and plating technologies to make the weapons perform better, last longer, require less user maintenance and provide the best value to the user, utilizing the proprietary technology acquired from Land Warfare Resources Corporation.
