Retailer Cabela’s has named Century Arms a “strategic partner” of the year as an award for its ongoing business relationship, according to the AK maker’s statement this week.
The “Strategic Partners of the Year” award given by the retailer recognizes select vendors for how they influence sales, meet customer service goals, and inventory and margin, the statement says.
“The support that Century Arms has given Cabela’s has allowed both companies to grow with each other in an, at times, challenging market,” said Nick Evans, Cabela’s category manager.
The statement adds the relationship between the two companies has grown exponentially over the years.
Century is one of the largest AK makers in the U.S., producing more than 65,000 AK-style firearms in 2015, according to federal data.
Cabela’s, which sells firearms, ammo and outdoor goods, has reported more than $3 billion in sales each year.
