The Sig Experience Center and Sig’s Vision

Sig Sauer President Ron Cohen remarked, at the SEC’s grand opening, that “The timing of this facility is serendipitous, as over the next eighteen months we will begin to deliver one of the largest small arms contracts in US history, the Next Generation Squad Weapons, to the US Army.”

“The museum at the Sig Experience Center affords us the opportunity to share the story of our military beginnings in 1751 to our emergence as a modern defense industry leader transforming squad level weapons for the US Army and the world with the XM5, XM 250, suppressors, and hybrid ammunition.”

Cohen was joined at the SEC’s ribbon-cutting ceremony by Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson, whose state houses the Sig Sauer ammunition production facility, dignitaries of the state of New Hampshire, and Sig Sauer leadership, employees, and distinguished guests.

The facility is now open to the public, offering a new attraction for firearms enthusiasts in the Northeast and visitors to New England. Cohen noted that “The SIG Experience Center marks the next phase in our company’s evolution, and we are immensely proud to have the opportunity to share the excitement of our brand and our accomplishments with the world.”
