Missouri woodshop expands bullet-resistant products amidst mass shootings
SULLIVAN, Mo. – Amidst all of the recent mass shootings, Executive Wood Products, a maker of bullet-resistant lecterns and podiums, says it will begin making ballistic church and courthouse pews, furnishings, and desk inserts. 
“What we provide, for the pubic and for the government, is truly a bitter sweet product. However, we feel so proud of what we do and so proud that we can help and serve people,” the company's marketing director Tina Siebenman told KMOX St. Louis local news.
Siebenman also told KMOX that business is booming. The company is planning to expand from 20 to 30 employees within a year.
Executive Wood Products has one manufacturing location in Sullivan, Missouri where it manufactures bullet-resistant lecterns and furniture for schools, universities, hotels, government agencies, banks, individual consumers, and more. The company applies a high volume low pressure (HVLP) finish to its products and hand sands between coats.
