“I have a dream, to build, to succeed…”
In 1952, the late Al Ferst established Camfour in the old Indian Motorcycle building in Springfield, MA. His vision was to provide his customers with superior service, great products choices, and a feeling of confidence in the company they were doing business with. In 1961, Camfour moved to its present location in Westfield, MA. Early in its beginning, Camfour distributed campers, boats, trailers, fishing tackle and shooting sport supplies. Over time, the focus became the shooting sport industry and in 1976 Camfour phased out everything other than firearms and related products.
In 1984, Camfour revolutionized the shooting sports industry with the development of our online ordering software, PCGun. PCGun launched Camfour into the age of technology by providing customers with online ordering. This software, combined with state of the art (for the time) hardware equipment, enabled independent shooting sports retailers to have instant access to a wealth of information, inventory and the ability to order 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This year we launched an all new software called EZGun. Sign up today to become a dealer and try it for yourself. It is fast, intuitive and EZ.
In 1998, Al Ferst sold Camfour to a group of three local investors. Al continued to stay on with Camfour for a period of time teaching its new owners the ‘in’s and out’s’ of the industry. Camfour is still committed to the same ‘pillars’ of customer service started by Al Ferst some 60 plus years ago.
Since 2008, Camfour and Hill Country have hosted an annual trade show which features a unique buying experience for dealers. The show is held at the exciting Mohegan Sun Casino where dealers can place stocking orders for the year, receive free goods and interact one on one with some of the top manufacturers in the industry. Our 9th annual trade show will take place January 10-12th, 2016. Contact us to reserve your spot at this exciting event.
“This I have done & more I will do…”
Today Camfour continues to thrive and prosper while keeping Al Ferst’s vision in focus. We provide dealers with exceptional customer service, a wide variety of shooting sports product and a buying relationship that is important to us!
