ATW Relocates Pistol Fabrication to Rhode Island
The Metalform product line is now fully consolidated with strong firearms and defense capabilities manufacturing that includes precision CNC machining, metal injection molding, laser cutting, precision metal tubing and stamping.
ATW Companies (Warwick, RI), a leading provider of engineered metal manufacturing solutions, announced that it has relocated its Metalform product line manufacturing operations to its Rhode Island facility. Metalform is now fully consolidated with the company’s strong firearms and defense capabilities that include precision CNC machining, metal injection molding (MIM), laser cutting, precision metal tubing, and stamping.
Consolidation of manufacturing operations is expected to improve the reliability and quality of Metalform magazines and bring a renewed technology focus to new product development. Metalform capabilities include deep-drawing, stamping, and pistol magazine fabrication.
Top Metalform products include .38 caliber, .45 caliber, and 9 mm magazines that are supplied to many top firearms industry companies. A.T. Wall, ATW’s precision stamping and tube drawing subsidiary, acquired the New Britain, CT-based gun magazine manufacturing firm in 2011. The acquisition supports ATW’s vertical integration into the rapidly growing firearms and defense industries.
No disruption to business operations occurred during the manufacturing changeover. A.T. Wall increased its finished goods inventory to satisfy demand during the transition and is now completely up to speed at its Warwick manufacturing facility.
“The relocation of Metalform and consolidation of our dedicated firearms and defense team helps ATW better serve firearms customers, as we seek to bring dramatically improved reliability using our extensive expertise and diverse manufacturing capabilities,” said Tracy MacNeal, the chief strategy officer of ATW.
