Here is the announcement.
MILES CITY, MONTANA – Western Powders, Inc. announces the acquisition of Montana X-Treme gun care products
We’re pleased to announce that effective January 10, 2005 that Western Powders, Inc. has acquired the Montana X-Treme brand of gun care products. “Montana X-Treme is an outstanding gun care line. I was first introduced to Montana X-Treme two years ago when our ballistics lab requested that Western utilize only Montana X-Treme cleaners and solvents. That is a huge endorsement considering our ballistics lab shoots between 600 and 900 rounds per day and to maintain stringent testing conditions the barrels are cleaned after every 30 rounds. Cleaning and gun care for these guys is not a hobby – it’s a job and Montana X-Treme products have made their job much easier,” said Doug Phair President of Western Powders, Inc. “We are impressed with the quality of products comprising the Montana X-Treme line and our focus over the next several months will be to market Montana X-Treme products to our dealer network and provide the shooting public with information regarding the many benefits and advantages that Montana X-Treme products provide.”.
Phair added, “We have no plans to change the manufacturing of any of the products comprising the Montana X-Treme line. We are very excited about the potential for market growth and will be focusing our attention on improving distribution and availability of the Montana X-Treme line throughout North America and Europe.”.
All sales and marketing operations involving Montana X-Treme gun care products have been moved to Miles City, Montana and no disruption in service is anticipated. Further information regarding Montana X-Treme products can be obtained by calling Western Powders, Inc. at 406-232-0422 or on the web at www.montanaxtreme.com.
