Who is T&Z Armory
Co-founder Andrew Liszewski was born and raised in South Bend, Indiana. Like most farm kids, he regularly found himself shooting varmint, deer hunting, and target shooting, which is where is firearms background began. After high school, Andrew attended Manchester College, and graduated with a B.S. in Small Business Management and Entrepreneurship in 2003. He worked in corporate America for about nine years, and decided to step out and start a business of his own in 2011. His enthusiasm for firearms and shooting sports naturally led him to the firearms industry, so he and long time friend Michael Pelini decided to start T & Z Armory Inc. His growing enthusiasm for personal protection started when Andrew got married and started a family, and the protection of his family became very important. He now wants to help others protect themselves and their families with the same confidence that he has protecting his family. He feels that T & Z Armory is a direct reflection of himself and his business partner, and wants to make sure every customer of T & Z Armory is not just a sale, but a lifelong relationship with an organization dedicated to service and quality.
Wow! You’re actually reading this? Well, here goes…. Co-founder Michael Pelini was born and raised in New Castle, Pennsylvania. One of Mike’s earliest memories includes his mother showing him his grandfather’s Purple Heart. Having a father, two uncles, and two grandfathers in the military (albeit, one in the Italian military), Michael was introduced to firearms at an early age. He received his B.A. in business administration with a minor in psychology from Bethel College, Mishawaka, IN, in 2004. Since then Mike has been a retail manager, medical patient satisfaction consultant (get your mind out of the gutter) and even a field research assistant (basically against his will) at Harvard University for his wife, Dr. Pelini, an ecologist. Yes, you read that correctly- his wife was his boss; get your laughs over with now and pay attention. Realizing that long time friend Andy Liszewski needed someone smarter and better looking than himself to go into business with, Mike decided to join Andy in creating T & Z Armory. Both Mike and Andy are firearm enthusiasts with a genuine passion to reach out to new and experienced firearms enthusiasts alike. They hope that you enjoy their website and find their products, services, and expertise a value to you and your friends.
