SIG SAUER Plans Ammunition Manufacturing Facility In Jacksonville, Arkansas

SIG SAUER, a manufacturer of premium ammunition, is finalizing plans to locate a new ammunition manufacturing facility in an existing building in Jacksonville, Arkansas. The company anticipates creating about 50 new jobs.

The company manufactures both pistols and rifles as well as silencers, optics, ammunitions, airguns and accessories. The company traces its roots to 1853 as a wagon factory named Swiss Industrial Company.

Governor Asa Hutchinson said, “SIG SAUER was one of the first calls I made as Governor, and I am delighted they chose our state when making the decision to expand. The fact that a world-class company like SIG SAUER is choosing to do business in the state adds to our momentum in manufacturing and we appreciate this significant commitment they are making to locate in Arkansas.”

"The Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce and the City of Jacksonville have worked very hard on this project and we are very excited that SIG SAUER had decided to locate this ammunition manufacturing facility in Jacksonville," said Amy Mattison, CEO of the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce.

“We’re excited about SIG SAUER, a world renowned manufacturer of firearms, locating a facility in Jacksonville,” said Jacksonville Mayor Gary Fletcher. “This is great news for our workforce with the opportunities and jobs they will provide for the community. I’m very appreciative of the hard work and efforts of Governor Asa Hutchinson, the Arkansas Economic Development Commission, SIG SAUER officials, the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce and many local business individuals. We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship for years to come.”
