“Our company has been pleasantly surprised at the breadth of firearms product knowledge demonstrated by Southern Machine Works. It feels like we have our own Engineer embedded on-site at SMW. SMW has proven to be a valuable asset to our Supply Chain base.”
– VP of Supply Chain at a top-tier Firearms OEM
As the weapons business has become increasingly more competitive, corporate stakeholders are seeking new ways to provide products of higher quality, better value, and lower price. Savvy gun OEM’s understand that vertical integration of manufacturing is not always possible or necessary – and outsourcing to Southern Machine Works is an excellent way to ensure an uninterrupted supply of quality parts. Indeed, our AS9100 quality certification is higher than most commercial firearms manufacturing companies own quality certification. Further, we are ITAR registered and as holders of an 07 FFL and a Class 2 SOT (pending) you can rest assured we have the compliance and regulatory requirements well in-hand. At SMW, we have built an enviable supply chain of FFL/SOT vendors whom we rely on for post processing of heat treat or cosmetic finishes – i.e., black oxide, Mil-Spec anodizing, Cerakoting, QPQ, et al – all to ensure parts we deliver can go right into production and final assembly.
