Our Company


TEK Arms Inc., formerly TEK Industries Inc., was started in 1984 by Mark Matheny.TEK specialized in engineering, contract manufacturing, and custom R&D. The company was instrumental in development, design and manufacturing of products for the military & Defense industry, medical fields, private security, industrial, telecom, and firearms sectors.

Matheny, an electrical engineer, specializing in R&D, gained recognition over the years with multiple award-winning products for both private and government sectors. Such products included: TEK LoudButton, TEK GuardTour, MouseMat, Colt Smart Gun and numerous RFID products.

In honor of his accomplishments, the United States Business Administration selected Matheny as Connecticut’s Small Business Person of the Year in 1994, for which he was honored by President Clinton at the White House. Matheny also received the Connecticut Governor’s Award for Exporting in 1995 and was featured on the cover of Business Solutions magazine in 2004. He is a holder of numerous patents in the communication area.

In 2012, Mark sold TEK Industries but maintained his licenses for future use in the defense and private sector industries; and industry where he has most of his “brilliant brainstorms.”

In 2014, TEK Arms was established by Matheny and daughter Alaina, a former business owner with considerable experience in both civilian and government sectors. Together they paired their love for guns and unique technology to help create cutting edge products and services to aid today’s military, law enforcement and first responders, along with creating custom creations for the civilian sector. Currently they approach the firearms industry with unique creativity and diverse engineering skills to help better government and private sectors with cutting-edge technology and design integrations. On the civilian side, help customize firearms for every individual. Help create unique and individualized firearms for everyone.

Today, alongside three added team members, Greg Stewart, Army Veteran, Cerakote certified applicator and gunsmith; Alex Spears, current Army National Guard and federally accredited armorer; and Gunner, the company’s four legged mascot, they are making strides in the firearms industry.

When the team isn’t working on new “Tony Stark” like products, they can be found raising awareness and money for Veteran organizations, and schools specializing in the trades.

TEK prides itself on being a Woman and Veteran operated corporation which maintains its presence 100% in the US.
