Brixtel Defense Plans Dawson County, Montana, Operations

Brixtel Defense, a global defense company, established ammunition manufacturing operations in Glendive, Montana. The $125 million project is expected to create more than 350 jobs in Dawson County by 2028.

The new facility will produce primers, a key component in most ammunition. The company is partnering with Alpha Loading Systems.

“In an era where outsourcing is commonplace, we choose to invest in the heart of our nation. We are proud to announce a $125 million investment in Montana,” said Andy Mansoor, CEO of Brixtel Defense. “This expansion is a testament to our belief in the American workforce, the American dream, and the fundamental values upon which this great country was built. As we embark on this journey in Glendive, we are reminded of our purpose. Together, we build more than ammunition; we forge the future of freedom.”

Brixtel Defense manufactures munitions and propellants for the U.S. Armed Forces and its allies.

“Montana is proudly home to over 150 innovative firearms and ammunitions businesses, the highest per capita in the country,” Governor Greg Gianforte noted. “We’re thrilled to welcome Brixtel Defense to Big Sky Country, and appreciate the ammunition leader’s investment in our state and people.”
