Armscor Global Defense, Inc. has long acknowledged that arms and ammunition are not the only tools for safety, security and defense. in fact. the most important weapon in security and defense today is information, in the form of data, intelligence. experience and skill. A security or defense solution does not only consist of hardware, but is today, an ecosystem of different elements. Even hardware, on its own, is never a complete solution without training, parts, and repair and maintenance elements.

Armscor has transformed itself from a small local manufacturer, into a major player in the global market today. This has been an epic journey. but the company has realized that it must now bootstrap itself to a broader, more global stage.

At present, Armscor exports over 80% of its Philippine output. it has established two factories in the United States Armscor Cartridge, Inc. at Stevensville, Montana in 2011 and Nevada Gun Works at Pahrump, Nevada in 2016. Although Armscor products are sold in over 60 countries in six continents, the truth is that the United States remains its primary market. However. Armscor Global Defense has built the capability to go beyond the US. and Philippine markets. it plans to establish offices and facilities in Europe and elsewhere in the world within the next few years.

Many Filipino companies talk about aspiring to be world-class. Armscor Global Defense, Inc. has already achieved this, and the next step is for it to engage more with the rest of the world.
