AlphaTech, A Contract Firearms Component Manufacturer, Supports Walk The Talk America

The North Carolina-based machine shop producing high-quality firearms components for some of the top names in the firearms industry proudly steps up to support WTTA efforts.

Las Vegas, Nev. (March 2022) Walk The Talk America (WTTA), a non-profit organization designed to bridge the gap between the firearms industry and owners and the mental health industry, welcomes AlphaTech as its newest supporter.

“AlphaTech is a contract manufacturer producing firearm components for some well-known names within the industry. As such, we are committed to the promotion of responsible gun ownership. We are excited to lock arms with Walk the Talk America, as we value the work Mike, and his team are doing,“ Joe Worley, president of AlphaTech, commented.

“I am thrilled to have Joe and his team at AlphaTech join us in our efforts to inform and educate both sides of the suicide and gun violence issues,” Michael Sodini, WTTA founder, added. “Our partnerships are not specific to one kind of company and having a manufacturer within the firearms industry step up to the plate means a great deal to our ongoing efforts.”

WTTA, the brainchild of Mike Sodini, a firearms industry veteran, spearheaded a movement within the firearms industry to bridge the gap between mental health and responsible firearm ownership to reduce suicide by firearm and gun violence. Through educational programs, podcasts, and training programs, WTTA is paving the way of educating mental health professionals about the gun culture and breaking down the negative stigmas around mental health for gun owners. Through their various programs and offerings, such as instructional flyers and slides for firearms instructors, classes in Cultural Competence, and the Introductory Courses in The Intersection of Guns and Mental Health, WTTA is leading the conversation and opening doors throughout the firearms industry and mental health industry.

AlphaTech provides contract services from prototyping to custom machine builds and design for a variety of industries including instrumentation, automotive, gas analytics, electrical, and firearms. AlphaTech produces products for some of the most well-known brands in the shooting sports industry and is capable of working with start-ups through large volume production runs.
