APEX Ammunition Expands Columbus, Mississippi, Operations

APEX Ammunition plans to relocate and expand its operations in Columbus, Mississippi. The $4.45 million project is expected to create 64 jobs.

Renovations on the newly purchased building are scheduled for this summer and operations for late 2023.

“APEX Ammunition has strong ties to Columbus, and the state of Mississippi has made a concerted effort to support our expansion and growth trajectory. This great partnership has led us to plant permanent roots in Mississippi, and we couldn’t be more excited about that. The new manufacturing facility gives us room to significantly increase production to meet the surging demand for our ammunition, and we will be adding numerous jobs to achieve this,” Jason Lonsberry, President and CEO, APEX Ammunition said.

The Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) is providing assistance for building improvement. MDA also is providing assistance through the Mississippi Flexible Tax Incentive, or MFLEX. Lowndes County and the city of Columbus are assisting with the project, as well.

“MDA has worked diligently with APEX Ammunition and our economic development partners at the Golden Triangle Development LINK, Lowndes County and the city of Columbus to foster job creation and increase the quality of life in this important region. The jobs provided by APEX Ammunition will have a significant positive impact across the entire Golden Triangle Region for years to come,” noted MDA Deputy Executive Director Laura Hipp.

APEX Ammunition manufactures premium shotgun ammunition for online retail and wholesale dealer sales.

“The LINK is excited that APEX Ammunition has settled on a location in Lowndes County, and we are looking forward to following their success. APEX Ammunition is a true homegrown business that has honed-in on the production of a genuine and bespoke product. They are another jewel in our outdoor recreation crown,” Meryl Fisackerly, COO, Golden Triangle Development LINK added.
