Madison, NC --(Ammoland.com)- Remington Arms Company, LLC (“Remington”) broke ground recently on the expansion of its operations at the Remington Ammunition Plant in Lonoke, Arkansas.

Work on the expansion, which will include the construction of a new building, is projected to be in operation by the second quarter of 2014. Speaking at the event alongside Remington officials were Senator Mark Pryor (D-AR) and Governor Mike Beebe (D-AR).

“Existing industries are vitally important to the economic well-being of our state,” Governor 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.”

“As an avid hunter and gun owner, I’m particularly excited to help announce this expansion,” Senator Mark Pryor said. “Remington has been an economic engine in our state for years, and this will allow them to bring even more jobs and development to central Arkansas.”

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.

“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 Ammunition Plant, established in 1969, designs and manufactures leading ammunition products with superior craftsmanship. More information about Remington Ammunition can be found at http://www.remington.com/product-categories/ammunition.aspx

    1. YEAH !!!! WONDERFUL !!!! New jobs for Arkansas and also a light at the end of the second amendment fight. I don’t think Remington would build/expand a large facility like this unless they were confident that the anti-gun fight is winding down…..Jobs and Ammo for Arkansas….GREAT DEAL…..

    2. The anti-gun fight aint winding down if anything its about fire up again. Gunowners and pro constitution people cant give them gungrabbing sissys,nothing.Its great about the new Remington factory and the jobs it will create for Arkansas.

    3. The gungrabbers are just getting started on their second amend. assault.

    4. Will Remington also sell all of the ammo to DHS as part of strangling the supply to citizens strategy of the Obama Admin?

      I would be more impressed if Remington renounced their supply contracts with the Federal Government and sold to them on an as needed basis.

      Agree with Tex, the anti-Constitutionalists are just getting started with the big push to finish off the Bill of Rights.

    5. People are not buying 10 bricks of 22 LR a month. Shotgun shells are very available and cheap, same raw materials as regular ammo. Retail ammo is 50% to 75% higher since Obama.

      Most popular handgun calibers are produced 2-4 billion rounds per year. Supply and demand a factor, sure, but for almost a year now, hmmm. Winchester tells me that they are at full capacity, millions of rounds per day. Military & law enforcement stockpile should be filled by now. People are NOT expending ammo like before; stockpiling and hoarding will subside at some point. Still, why is ammo NOT in supply like before, it is not lack of imports (at least not at this time) or capacity.

      Even with the Clinton administration, it was not this bad.

      There is a “pinch” in the ammo supply system; whether it is demand, supply, Federal involvement, or just greed. Demand will taper off and over-capacity will fill those garages, backyards and warehouses. Nitrocellulose is the base component for powder, only one source in USA, the only choke point in the supply system. If it is the “law of supply and demand” then it will correct by next year.

      Ammo is good for 50 years.
