Logistics Expert D.T. Gruelle Newest Bronze Sponsor of 2016 NSSF Industry Summit

NEWTOWN, Conn. — The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®), the firearms industry trade association, is pleased to announce that D.T. Gruelle Company Group LLC is the newest Bronze-level sponsor of the 2016 NSSF Industry Summit. Headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the company is a provider of freight-forwarding, specialty logistics, customs brokerage services as well as compliance solutions for both domestic and international concerns. D.T. Gruelle specializes in the transport of ITAR, BIS, and ATF controlled goods, as well as Class 1 HAZMAT.

“With today’s firearms manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers constantly on the lookout for opportunities to expand how and where they do business, it’s essential that they have the ability to connect with a variety of businesses outside the core industry,” said Samantha Pedder, NSSF Manager, Outreach & Diversity. “With its expertise in domestic and international logistics and their attendant compliance issues, D.T Gruelle’s sponsorship of the 2016 NSSF Industry Summit is one that helps provide a crucial connection to many in our trade.”

Marco Gruelle, Export Manager for D.T. Gruelle, commented, “We are proud to sponsor an event as important as the NSSF Industry Summit. It is essential for NSSF members to have a forum where everyone can discuss the issues facing our industry. This way we can develop proactive strategies and procedures for dealing with new regulations.”

The 2016 NSSF Industry Summit will take place June 6-8 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, at the Pittsburgh Marriott City Center. Registration is now open. This year’s summit will build on the foundations established at last year’s summit, including those dynamic models of success that contribute toward the common industry goals of promoting hunting and target shooting, responding to threats to our success and exploring new avenues of opportunities for growth and recruitment.
