When we started manufacturing our own products, it was fun figuring out the manufacturing processes and watching products be born. As a manufacturer, we are a process improvement driven company and are on a lifelong journey of improvement. Our state of the art manufacturing center is world class and visitors, without fail, comment on the cleanliness of our facility. I believe that anybody can manufacture a product, but we can do it better here in the United States than anywhere in the world.
At the turn of the 21st century, firearms enthusiast and lifelong shooter, Marty had multiple concepts and designs he thought would greatly improve his M16 rifle. Unable to find these parts in the commercial market, he designed and created, big hole uppers, sling loops and rails in small batches and soon found the demand for these types of products was much greater than he could have ever imagined. Thus, Daniel Defense was born.
Since selling our first AR in 2009, we work each day to deliver products unmatched in quality, precision, and world-class customer service. From our inception, the company has striven to control every facet of production and today makes nearly every component part it sells. From being one of the first in the industry to use a cold hammer forging process to build the world’s most accurate and durable barrels to using our own in-house robotic Cerakote finishing line, Daniel Defense aims to control its own destiny to better serve our customers and consumers. This was only enhanced in 2017 when the company moved into its state-of-the-art 300k square-foot manufacturing facility. By leveraging our design and manufacturing efficiencies we’ve successfully been able to provide consumers custom quality products at a great value.
