STI International provided a general statement in response to our MIUSA Survey.
Rabbit Boyett, Marketing Director/Sales, STI International provided the following response via email on 12/21/10:
“Mike I’m very sorry but I’m just not going to be able to get this for you this time around. I am just WAY too overloaded right now! (Partially because what your survey requires such in-depth answers.) I can give you a quick answer, though- While we make most of our guns and parts here, there are some foreign made non-critical components. Also, we are a 100% employee owned company based in Georgetown, Tx. Anyone (including yourself) who is interested in what we do is welcome to come out to our facility on Thursdays at 9:30 for a full tour. On your survey, please feel free to follow up with me after SHOT, though.”
