Silencerco Acquires SWR Manufacturing

Silencerco of West Valley City, Utah; a relatively new comer to suppressor design and manufacturing, announced that it has acquired SWR, Southeastern Weaponry Research, Pickens, SC.

Silencerco was founded in 2008 by Jonathan Shultz, Joshua Waldron and Mike Pappas. The company has been making a splash with innovative designs. Their .22 Sparrow enjoys considerable success, which features what the company calls Multi Part Containment or MPC.

The acquisition of SWR adds to Silencerco’s experience curve and should prove to be a marriage made in heaven.

As a young company, SWR, faced numerous challenges managing an increasing demand for their superb line of weapon suppressors. The acquisition will give SWR access to Silencerco’s manufacturing facility in Utah. If all works well, it means that SWR customers will have greater availability to product and customer service.
