KALISPELL, Mont. -

A Flathead fire arms company is expanding its operations again after they've acquired an Ohio based company.

Proof Research in Columbia Falls is a manufacturing company that produces high-tech weapons components.

They sell to private owners and organizations, and even outfit special operations military groups.

The company announced they've agreed to buy Performance Polymer Solutions inc. from Dayton, Ohio, who make high durability adhesive materials.

They become the fifth company that Proof Research has bought within the last two years.

Chief Marketing Officer Derek McDonald says the company has come a long way with-in this last year of business.

"When I came to the company there were less than 15 employees and that was June of last year and we're right now at 50 employees.  So the company is growing in all aspects.  We're not just a small local firearms company that's just producing for local customers."

McDonald says the company hopes this acquisition will help them expand and grow even further and become a more complete firearms manufacturing company.
