About Sig Sauer

SIG SAUER believes in giving its customers its best shot. The company makes and imports SIG SAUER handguns and SIG firearms accessories; it also sells apparel, knives, and instructional DVDs. The gun manufacturer also operates the New Hampshire-based SIG SAUER Academy, which provides indoor and outdoor firearms-related training specific to armed professionals – more... in law enforcement, the military, security, or correctional operations. The academy also serves private citizens. SIG SAUER's customer base includes law enforcement, the military, and individuals. The firm derives its name from Swiss gun maker Schweizerische Industrie-Gesellschaft (or SIG) and German rifle and pistol manufacturer J.P. Sauer & Sohn.

SIG SAUER is the largest company in a global group of firearm makers that includes J.P. Sauer & Sohn and Blaser Gmbh in Germany and Swiss Arms AG in Switzerland. This network of companies gives SIG SAUER advantages over rivals, as the guns maker boasts access to a worldwide base of firearms knowledge and design expertise, as well as extensive manufacturing capacity.

It's this foundation that helps SIG SAUER ink lucrative deals with the US military. In 2011, for instance, the gun maker was awarded a $5 million federal contract by the Department of the Navy for weapons.

SIG was founded in Switzerland in 1853. More than a century later, it formed US company SIGARMS in 1995 to better serve the American market. In 2007, SIGARMS changed its name to SIG SAUER, reflecting the growing popularity of the SIG SAUER line of firearms. – less
