Barnett Outdoors, LLC is the world’s leading manufacturer of crossbow, archery and slingshot products. As with many success stories, ours started small in 1962 when a man named Bernard Barnett pursued a hobby working with crossbows from his garage in the United Kingdom. Mr. Barnett began filling orders for his acquaintances who were impressed by his handiwork, and the business was born. From there, manufacturing facilities popped up across Europe and eventually made their way to the United States. Growth in the American market resulted in additional product lines, streamlined manufacturing processes and cost reduction that eventually brought operations to the U.S. permanently in 2003.
