Eagle Imports Announce 2015 Distributor of the Year: Lipsey’s®


Dist of year

Eagle Imports, Inc., the exclusive distributor of Metro Arms, SPS, Bersa®, Comanche, Grand Power and Llama firearms products, proudly announces that Lipsey’s®, a major firearms distributor located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, has been awarded the 2015 Eagle Imports Distributor of the Year for their valued service and sales.

“The team at Lipsey’s® have gone above and beyond to service our multiple lines, increasing our brand awareness, driving sales and keeping those orders coming in,” Michael Sodini, President of Eagle Imports said. “Their 2015 numbers were impressive and their personalized and consistent attention to our brands made the difference in determining the 2015 Distributor of the Year award.”

“Lipsey’s® has always valued the relationship we’ve had with the Eagle Imports and Bersa® family,” Flint Virgets, senior vice president and general manager added. “This award reminds us of how fortunate we are to do substantial business with longtime friends.”

Founded in 1953, the wholesale hunting and fishing distributor was purchased by Richard Lipsey and the Lipsey family in 1977. After years of expanding operations to include fishing tackle, athletic supplies and Converse Athletic footwear, Lipsey’s® divested itself of all its athletic distributorships and concentrated full-time on firearms distribution. Today, Lipsey’s® is one of the country’s largest independently owned, single location firearms distributors in the country.

Eagle Imports is the exclusive importer of such popular lines as Bersa® pistols, American Classic, the top performing Grand Power pistols and the return of the concealed carry Llama line.
