Boss & Co.
Boss & Co is London’s oldest gunmaker, a company that has remained in privately-owned operation since being established. Whether you are a seasoned shooter, an owner or an enthusiast this insight into Boss & Co history will tell the story of the innovators and craftsmen who made the company what it is today.
Boss & Co continues today in private ownership as it always has since its founding in 1812, as London’s oldest gun company. Today it is owned by Arthur DeMoulas a man with a long-standing knowledge and appreciation for the company, our heritage and guns.
Driven by his passion Arthur was finally able to acquire the company after many years of negotiating, such was his drive and determination to see the company run as he knew it deserved to be.He understood the importance of private ownership, a fact which has enabled Boss & Co to continue to focus on building “Best Guns Only” and lead the revered ‘holy-trinity’ of London gunmakers, unencumbered by the distractions of diversification, that can arise from being part of a large luxury lifestyle brand conglomerate.In fact, the first decision that Arthur communicated to the workforce on buying the company was that Boss & Co would continue to make “Best Guns Only” by hand, using traditional methods. Second grade and machine made guns would never be built at the company.Since then under his leadership, the company has invested in the London workshop, has helped to secure key suppliers and set-up an apprenticeship scheme to train and pass on the skills to a new generation of Boss & Co, London gunmakers.
