IWI US Sponsors the 2014 Indiana SWAT Challenge
Corporate Sponsorship of the 13th Annual Indiana SWAT Challenge Provides SWAT Teams from
Midwest Opportunity to Test and Train on the TAVOR® SAR Platform.
Harrisburg, Pa. (July 2014) – IWI US, Inc. a subsidiary of Israel Weapon Industries (IWI)
Ltd., is proud to announce a corporate sponsor partnership with Indiana SWAT
Challenge, Inc. (ISC), a non-profit corporation based in Muncie, Indiana. Now, in its 13th
year, the Indiana SWAT Challenge offers SWAT teams from across the country an
opportunity to test and train in a unique military-style setting. Teams compete while
sharpening their skills in real-world type scenarios. This year the Indiana SWAT
Challenge, hosted by the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office, will be held at Camp
Atterbury in Edinburgh, Indiana.
“The Indiana SWAT Challenge provides SWAT officers an ideal opportunity to
experience the benefits of the TAVOR® SAR, especially its compact size, perfect for
entry, enclosed interior spaces and for getting in and out of patrol cars,” Michael Kassnar, VP of Sales and
Marketing for IWI US, commented. “We are proud to partner with an organization that provides officers with
serious training and testing in an atmosphere of camaraderie and community support.”
“The partnership between ISC & IWI is an ideal match,” Tony Skinner, ISC President, added. “The SWAT
Challenge brings over one hundred highly motivated SWAT officers to Indiana for the competition every year.
This year they will be rewarded with the prospect of shooting the world’s most advanced rifle—the TAVOR®
SAR. We are excited about providing this through our sponsor, IWI US, and introducing IWI US to the best
tactical officers around. ISC’s expectations are for a long and successful partnership.”
The Indiana SWAT Challenge takes place September 3rd-6th, 2014. Members of the Delaware County
Emergency Response Team staff the Challenge and do not participate.
