Dallas-based ammunition company Expansion Ammunition will invest $100 million dollars to locate at TexAmericas Center in Texarkana, Texas. The project is expected to create 400 jobs.
Expansion Ammunition is the first company to purchase land on TexAmericas Center’s East Campus, acquiring approximately 170-acres for this project. The company will build a state-of-the-art facility that will specialize in making primers and eventually ammunition for the small arms industry, including for law enforcement, home defense, and shooting sports.
“Good jobs and good relationships with companies like Expansion Ammunition help build our future as a company and region,” said Scott Norton, Executive Director and CEO of TexAmericas Center. “This partnership illustrates our efforts to welcome companies and help them expand, while also benefitting the people and our region. Texarkana is good for business and TexAmericas Center is committed to making sure we do our part to grow the region.”
In 2021, TexAmericas Center announced 6,800 acres of land were successfully remediated to meet commercial and industrial standards after the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality removed the United States Army’s Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) permit from the property, making the land ready for job generating uses.
“Past planning, actions and investments by TexAmericas Center and our Development Partners are allowing businesses to grow now and in the future,” said Eric Voyles, Vice President and Chief Economic Development Officer at TexAmericas Center.
