HARTFORD, CT (August 4, 2021) – The shooting sports industry leader in FFL technology, payments and compliance services, Orchid LLC has been selected by Taurus Holdings, Inc. (“Taurus”), a top U.S. firearms manufacturer, to handle their payment processing.

Taurus Holdings CFO Kevin Riggott said, “We were looking for a payment processor that understood the industry, supported American’s Second Amendment rights and was committed to helping us reduce our operational expenses. Orchid has done that and more. We are expecting to save over six figures in our first year using Orchid Pay™.”

Experiencing a lack of service and support from their previous credit card processor, and with plans for continued growth of its eCommerce business at shoptaurus.com, Taurus sought an alternative solution.

“From our first conversation, it was clear Orchid understood our challenges and how to solve them,” said Riggott. “Their team provided great counsel and guided us through the effortless transition. We couldn’t be happier to work with Orchid and continue our efforts to support businesses that embrace our industry.”
