After 9/11 our company decided to go after US Government contracts. We attended the first "Direct from USA" trade show in Kuwait. Our goal was to bring small American business to the Middle East.
We have been to every GCC country. We found out our best customers are here in the USA. If you want to sell to the Middle East sell to Uncle Sam.
In 1978, we as a very small business received the largest tool order for the King Khalid Military City in Al Batin, Saudi Arabia. We bid it thru the US Army Corps of Engineers. All the goods were delivered to Brooklyn. We gave AMMCO tools the largest truck drum lathe order in the history of the company. We then turned to Marine. looking for American boat manufacturers. We got together with Penn Yan in New York, and sold patrol boats to the NYPD. We went looking for a jet ski company made in the USA. We brought the first Tigershark jet ski off the line for boat races in Kuwait. The we found a rescue jetski company in Huntington Beach, CA. We introduced them them to Baywatch and they became a show regular. We also introduced the Delta jet on the front cover of the 100th Anniversary of Hammer Schlemmer's catalog. The first order came from Michael Jackson. We also introduced the owner of the jetski company to the Ambassador of the .U.A.E for the purpose of joint venture manufacturing in Al Ain, UAE. We also opened an auto parts store with a Kuwaiti partner. Kuwait American Trading Company. The largest stockholder was a woman.
Today thru GSA we offer 20,000 part numbers in tools and equipment. We also offer 20,000 part numbers in marine supplies.We service 4200 customers. We enjoy serving those who serve best.
Welcome home we missed you.
