MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – January 27, 2020 – Viridian Weapon Technologies has announced that Ruger, trusted American firearms manufacturer, has been named Viridian’s 2019 OEM Partner of the Year. Viridian presented the award to Ruger at the 2020 SHOT Show in Las Vegas last week in recognition of the brands’ longstanding history and collaboration over the years.
“Ruger has been a key partner for Viridian over the years, and selecting them for this award was a clear choice,” said Viridian President and CEO Brian Hedeen. “We’ve worked alongside the Ruger Product Development team on countless occasions to design compatible weapon-mounted accessories for some of their most popular firearms—from the gun-specific E Series laser sight for the new Ruger-57 to the pre-installed Viridian Optics™ riflescope on the famous 10/22®. And there’s even more coming in 2020! We’re excited for what the future holds for our two brands.”
