Much like you, Silencerco / SWR have seen huge increases in the demand for our products since last November. We increased inventories at our wholesale distribution in anticipation of high demand in January. Even with those double digit increases in inventory, demand has increased at a higher rate than our manufacturing capability can currently support. This has caused a moderate delay in the availability of some of our products. While we have shipped record numbers of product every month this year, it has not been enough to keep up with the current demands placed on our wholesalers and dealers. We are currently expanding our production capacity, workforce and facilities to try and better meet the challenges of the increase in demand and rapid growth of our company. We recognize how this impacts our dealer as well. We are expanding to fill your needs.
I would like to update you on a specific product issue that comes up regularly with both our dealers and wholesalers. That issue is the availability of Saker 5.56 MAAD mounts. We have shipped many more Saker Bodies than we have Saker Trifecta MAAD or 51T MAAD mount units. We realize this means most dealers have unsold inventory that is unmountable to a weapons platform at this time. The decision was made to send the Saker 5.56 Bodies ahead of MAAD mounts to allow customers who had pre-purchased product to start the Form 4 process and thereby save 30-60 days on waiting for the MAAD Mounts to ship together. Sixty days later, we are working around the clock to manufacture a corresponding number of MAAD mounts in both Trifecta and 51T configurations.
The manufacturing of MAAD Mounts is currently priority number one for our machine shop. This is an effort to get dealers who have inventory of Saker 5.56 Suppressors enough mounts to make them usable and deliverable to consumers. Every available machine and employee that can be used in the manufacture of MAAD Mounts is currently being utilized at full capacity. We expect to have a corresponding amount of MAAD mounts to Saker 5.56 Bodies within the next 30-60 days. The deliveries of other products will be curtailed in the short term to help alleviate the pressure on the MAAD mount production schedule.
The all-out effort to produce large quantities of the MAAD mounts will have the largest effect on the delivery of our 22Sparrow product, which will likely be in short supply during that same 30-60 day time frame. We apologize for the inconvenience this causes our dealers, wholesalers and end use customers. We hope you will bear with us during this unprecedented period of growth for both our company and the industry. We truly appreciate your business and are doing everything possible to alleviate the shortages and make the growing pains a little more bearable. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions on these issues or any other.
