Business Wire quoted a statement from CSG:

CSG is a leading industrial technology company operating across strategic business segments including defense, aerospace, ammunition and mobility. Under the leadership of current CEO and 100% owner Michal Strnad, CSG has become the pre-eminent Czech industrial group and built an extensive global footprint.

We have a demonstrated history of supporting the long-term growth of our portfolio companies. We look forward to successfully closing the Acquisition of The Kinetic Group and becoming the steward of such venerable American brands as Federal, CCI and Remington. As we have publicly stated, we intend to keep in place The Kinetic Group’s existing leadership, invest in the business and continue production in the U.S.

Additionally, we would note that we have continued to invest in the U.S. facilities we already own in Arkansas and Missouri and have increased output at those plants – allowing us to provide even more supply to our American customers.



On April 11, on Newsmax TV host Eric Bolling noted that numerous police departments and law enforcement agencies have rules against buying ammunition from foreign ammunition companies. He expressed concerns over the possibility of our military being forced to acquire ammunition or being dependent on ammunition from a foreign-owned company.

Bolling also noted the problem private Americans may face due to jumps in cost, should CSG acquire the renowned American ammunition makers.

On January 24, Breitbart News noted that Sen. J.D. Vance launched a fight to prevent the sale. Vance voiced concerns about links between CSG and the Kremlin, and asked the Committee on Foreign Investment to block the sale.
