IO Inc – 2015 Conference Updates

One of the larger changes is that Ramzi Kheireddine appears to no longer be with the company and Eduardo Debarros is now the VP of Production. Eduardo previously worked for Taurus (for 20+ years) and focused on their expansion and eliminating issues with production. “While at Taurus he [Eduardo] was able to help that company expand from 100 guns a week to producing more than 5000 guns a week”.
