Easy Bound Book is Perfectly Tooled for Morrissey Inc.

Morrissey Inc, is a precision machining, stamping and complex metal fabrication shop. The parts they manufacture are used in machines for military, medical, filter, automotive, electric and aerospace applications, including firearms.

As the company was growing exponentially, the volume of parts needing to be tracked, in their ATF bound book, was heading toward the unmanageable. Upon advice from their ATF compliance attorney, Mark Barnes, Morrissey decided to move to an electronic bound book solution. The solution they chose was Easy Bound BookTM by Business Automation Specialists of Minnesota (BASM).

The Morrissey team, Steve Mealman, Nick Duerr and Louis Canete handle a lot of receivers for many different manufacturers. Easy Bound Book makes it fast, simple and accurate. Nick Duerr, Manufacturing Engineer had this to say, “EBB is worth every penny! We don’t look at Excel anymore, instead, we track everything in EBB. The accuracy and time savings free us up to get more work done rather than manually tracking our data. The system is easy to use and only requires someone who has basic computer skills.”

The system is easy to use and only requires someone who has basic computer skills. The EBB staff was able to customize our program, making it possible for us to batch our product check-ins which saved a ton of time! We have recommended this software to several other companies and will continue to do so.

BASM President, Ron Ketterling, recalled, “We use the same ATF Compliance attorney that Morrissey uses. When our attorney referred them to us, it was a huge vote of confidence, as Morrissey would become our largest client at the time with over 10,000 serial numbers per month.”

Exciting ATF News –
Easy Bound Book Explosives Update

In meeting with the ATF Division Chief and Assistant Director regarding Easy Bound Book Explosives, they let us know that the ATF would be open to requests for variances for combined books for explosive and destructive devices – such as 40 mm grenades. This will affect importers and manufacturers and can result in great time savings by maintaining just one book.
