Remington Arms Begins Expansion At Its Lonoke, Arkansas Ammunition Plant
The Remington Ammunition Plant, established in 1969, designs and manufactures leading ammunition products with superior craftsmanship.
“This groundbreaking ceremony marks a significant event for Remington and for the Lonoke community,” said George Kollitides, Chief Executive Officer of Remington. “It demonstrates our commitment to state-of-the-art facilities; ensuring quality, increasing product availability and improving on-time delivery to our customers. The expansion also allows us the opportunity to provide job growth within a community that has supported us since we laid the first cornerstone here in 1969. We are honored and pleased to celebrate this expansion with such great partners.”
The Remington expansion will help meet consumer demand for quality ammunition products at a time when many sportsmen and gun owners are struggling to find supply. Further, it will stimulate both the state and local economy, Arkansas economic development officials said.
“Existing industries are vitally important to the economic well-being of our state,” Gov. Mike Beebe said. “Remington Arms has had a strong presence here for almost a half century, and I am pleased that the company continues to choose Arkansas as the best location for its expansion.”
