Earlier this year, Competitive Shooting Director Mike Krei was in Germany for the 50th Anniversary International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Championships in Munich. While there he met with Adreas Krüger, owner of the Krüger Target Company, to discuss the potential licensing of NRA targets for manufacture and distribution. Last week, that potential turned into a reality.
“We are pleased to announce that the Krüger Target Company and the NRA have signed a five year license agreement that allows Krüger to produce many of the targets used in NRA competitions,” said Krei. “Company owner Mr. Andreas Krüger and Sales Manager Joachim Seibold flew in from Germany to work out the contract and now they will be manufacturing NRA targets both nationally and internationally.”
With more than 11,000 tournaments scheduled for 2011 and 120+ different targets used in those competitions, the NRA has precise guidelines when it comes to the paper quality of their targets. Due to those standards, only a handful of printers are currently licensed to produce official NRA targets. Now Krüger can be added to that handful.
“Our company is excited to begin a partnership with such a strong organization as the NRA,” said Sales Manager Joachim Seibold. “We believe our targets will succeed in meeting the strict standards the NRA holds.”
