Abu Dhabi: Caracal International, a subsidiary of Tawazun Holding, is in the United States to showcase its latest UAE-made products to law enforcement professionals, and sport shooting and hunting enthusiasts.

This is the second year that Caracal has participated in the Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade (Shot) Show and Conference, the largest and most comprehensive trade show held in Las Vegas.

Caracal’s US division, Caracal USA, unveiled the latest range of UAE-made modern pistols, including the new .40 caliber Caracal F and the CC10 Carbine. All the products on show incorporate the most modern technologies to provide the highest reliability, precision and safety, the company say.

Salem Al Matroushi, CEO of Caracal, said: “The shooting, hunting and defense markets are continually evolving and becoming more dynamic. Since launching a few years ago, we have been able to attract an increasing list of customers from around the world because our products are made to meet their unique needs and requirements.

“It is important that we invest our time to be present at exhibitions — like the Shot show — to demonstrate the UAE’s strategic manufacturing capability and make our products available in international markets. This highlights an important step in our development and we remain eager to extend our reach by attracting and retaining global partnerships. This, we feel, will allow us to be part of the elite group of small arms manufacturers producing world-class products.”

In February, along with all other Tawazun Holding subsidiaries, Caracal will be showcasing its products under the Tawazun pavilion at the International Defence Exhibition and Conference 2013, taking place on February 17-21 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center.
