Held at the Manila Polo Club, the triple celebration was a successful one, hosted by Marco Tuason and Nancy Castiglione.

70 years signifies how long the company has been Filipino-owned, specifically by the Tuason family.

60 years indicates the length of time they have been in the manufacturing. In 1952, President Ramon Magsaysay gave the company its first license to manufacture firearms and ammunition, giving rise to Squires Bingham Manufacturing Company, also known as Squibman.

Finally, 50 years represents the duration of Demetrio “Bolo” R. Tuason’s leadership of the company. Early in his career, his father, Don Celso Tuason turned over the reign of the company and groomed him to be chairman and President. This eventually led to the official birth of Armscor, the manufacturing company of firearms and ammunition.

Also, 2012 paves the way for the official turnover of Bolo Tuason’s leadership to his only son Martin O. Tuason on January 1, 2012. On top of becoming President and CEO of Armscor, Martin will maintain the position of CEO o of Armscor Precision International (API), which represents Amrscor, Martin will maintain the position of CEO of Armscor Precision International (API), which represents Armscor in the USA. Meanwhile, Severo “Conkoy” J. Tuason, Bolo’s brother, will sit as Chairman of the Board, while his son, Scott “Gutsy” D. Tuason will assume the Presidency of parent company Squire Bingham Co., Inc.

This turnover denotes a significant opening of a new chapter in Armscor history. A Triple Celebration for Armscor
