Their financial expertise and business backgrounds will help guide and support our entry into the consumer market and what we anticipate will be a period of great demand and rapid growth for non-lethal weapons and munitions."

Separately, the Wakefield, Massachusetts, company named Stan Baumgartner its new CFO. He most recently served as CFO of SIG Sauer, a firearm manufacturer that supplies the US Army.
