It is with the greatest of sadness to announce the passing of Robbie Tiffen on Wednesday 17th October 2018. He was an amazingly talented man and an asset to the shooting community.
I am proud to have worked beside Robbie for all these years building an incredibly successful business together here at Gunworks.
For a few years now, we have been preparing for this loss and as Robbie stepped back, our team at Gunworks has continued to deliver the high standard of service and products to the shooters of New Zealand and abroad. This will not change.
Robbie and I have an exceptional Gunworks Team: Grant, Keith, Bill and Renelle and we look forward to your ongoing support as we continue to give you the same amazing service and products in the future.
Because Robbie touched so many lives and knew so many people, his funeral had to be private. For those who missed out, here are the links to it, it is in 3 parts.
