The Specialists LTD was first formed in 1981 as Weapons Specialists Ltd., a celebrated company providing the media and entertainment industries with theatrical props and armorer services, founded by Rick Washburn. Since then, Weapons Specialists Ltd. has expanded its services to become the largest theatrical weapons property house on the East Coast.
Seeing our unique position in the industry, Weapons Specialists Ltd. again expanded its offerings to include graphics publishing, 3D printing, sculpting, and welding among other capabilities, formally becoming The Specialists Ltd. in 2010.
Today, we ship props and provide services and solutions around the globe, with an ever growing database of prop rentals and expendables numbering in the millions! We’re proud to build on the specialized skills we’ve honed through our years of experience in the weapons industry, focusing today on creative and highly technical fabrication and graphics projects.
