    Martin Archery is For Sale

    PRESS RELEASE

    December 20, 2012, Walla Walla, WA:

    Martin Archery is For Sale

    The Martin family has decided to sell its sixty-two year old archery business. Gail Martin, the company’s founder and President turns ninety next year and has decided to retire.

    Martin Archery has been a major player and innovator in the archery business for many years making multiple contributions to the growth of the industry.

    Gail Martin said “It’s time! There are so many things I have wanted to do for many years and have reluctantly decided that running the business makes it impossible to do them. Whoever buys the business will get a slate of state-of-the-art bows and will inherit a rich tradition.”

    Any interested persons are encouraged to contact Martin Archery at 509-529-2554 ext. 911 or e-mail MartinArcheryInc@gmail.com.

    Wow. My first bow was a Martin Cougar Magnum. I hope whoever gets their hands on the company does well by them. I'd like to see them become a force in the industry once again.

    Is this for real? I thought Ryan was taking over and continuing to run Martin as Gail had.

    Martin archery and the Martin family have always been number one in my book. I wish Gail the best a luck with his retirement and thank him for all he has done for the archery community.

    Good Luck, first bow I purchased was a wood riser Warthog, I was in pre-school. No seriously I was in high school, but PS doesn't make me sound so old. On the other hand a wood riser does make me old. lol

    I killed my first deer with a Martin Impala and owned plenty of others since that one. Martin is a great company founded by a true pioneer of the sport. Good luck to you Gail. Enjoy your retirement.

    I hope whoever buys it re-introduces the Nitrous-X cam...that would be pretty awesome with the new split limbs they're offering!

    i haven't been able to confirm this "press release" through other sources. makes me wonder if this is just another AT rumor. nothing about it on Martin's web site other than a thread referring back to this AT posting.

    hmm....since Martin started AT will it go away when the company is sold?
    Can you point me toward the target, please?

    I hope the new owner of Martin Archery keeps the current name and history of this pioneering company. I do hope that we do not loose an Ameican influence in the Archery Industry. Gail, I wish you a happy retirement.
