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.
