January 13 2011

Madison, NC Remington Arms Company, Inc., the only U.S. manufacturer of both firearms and ammunition products and one of the largest domestic producers of shotguns and rifles, and Ducks Unlimited (DU), the worlds largest non-profit organization dedicated to conserving North Americas continually disappearing waterfowl habitats, have announced a new sponsorship agreement.

As of January 1, 2011 Remington is a Proud Partner of Ducks Unlimited. Ducks Unlimited's Partners Program is all about special partnerships and programs that provide people with new ways to express their love of nature, enhance their trips afield, and support their commitment to sharing nature's rewards with their children, grandchildren and many generations to come.

We are very proud to partner with Ducks Unlimited to continue to support the conservation of Americas flyways and the waterfowl hunting sport, says Marc Hill, Chief Marketing Officer of Remington Arms. Remington will continue to support the waterfowl industry through end user driven new products such as our new patented semi-automatic shotgun and our patented worlds fastest HyperSonic Steel shot which is ideal for members of Ducks Unlimited.

For decades, iconic outdoor leaders Ducks Unlimited and Remington have enabled enthusiasts to enjoy countless hunts and helped conserve fragile habitats, stated Philip Milburn, National Director of Development Ducks Unlimited. This new partnership effort is a joint commitment to encourage more people to explore waterfowl hunting and a team effort to conserve more places to make hunting possible.

The scope of the Remington / DU partnership will cover both the waterfowl ammunition and shotgun categories.
