Taurus established its presence in the United States in 1982 with the formation of Taurus Holdings, Inc., a Florida based holding company that is responsible for some of the most robust firearms brands in the U.S. market. Taurus Holdings is owned by Forjas Taurus, S.A. which is a publicly traded company based in Brazil.
In 1984, Taurus Holdings became the first company to offer its customers an unqualified LIFETIME REPAIR POLICY. This changed the course of the company in the U.S. market. Only recently has this policy been matched. It has never been exceeded. This innovative policy made everyone sit up and take notice of Taurus brand firearms.
