Owners, John and Laura Siegert
Located in the Missouri Ozarks, Branson Cerakote is a veteran-owned small business. We take pride in serving our customers with the best personal, quality service in the business. As the business owners, we are firearms enthusiasts who enjoy owning, as well as working with, firearms. We’ve been Branson Cerakote since 2014. Our purpose as we grow and diversify is to continue to satisfy our customers with the same excellent finished products that we have had since the beginning.
Both sides of our family have a history of military service. John served in the US Army as an Airborne Infantryman in the 1990s and our oldest daughter, Olivia, currently serves in the US Army. John is also retired from the Colorado Springs Police Department.
I (Laura) am a registered nurse and have over 20 years of previous experience as a graphic artist. That experience benefits our customers with custom, creative designs.
Our Talented Staff
Andrew joined Branson Cerakote in 2020. He has an amazing amount of creative talent and continues to amaze us and our customers with his projects. Andrew has a gentle spirit and is the best teacher we could have ever imagined for our training courses. He continually receives the highest compliments from those who attend our training courses. We are grateful to have Andrew working with us!
Kristy, Andrew’s wife, joined us in 2021. She and I (Laura) have been friends since 2011 when we worked together at a local bank. She is still called, “Kristy from the bank”! Kristy is also a registered nurse who was forced from her position on the labor and delivery unit of the local hospital after she decided she did not want the Covid-19 vaccine. Kristy is now our General Manager, and we are so thankful to have her. Kristy gets “stuff” done and is a great motivator. She makes each of us a better person!
Our son, Whitmore, has worked at Branson Cerakote since he was 12. He started with stuffing envelopes and cutting out stencil sheets. A Junior in high school, Whit also attends O.T.C. college classes part-time and works in our business in the afternoons. Whitmore edits our videos and because of his skillful talent they are top quality. Whit’s talents have been recognized by other local businesses, giving him the opportunity to be an entrepreneur in his own right!
