PARA USA Relocating From Canada to Charlotte, North Carolina
October 31 2008 – Para, the innovator of fine firearms from the original high capacity 1911-style pistol to the Light Double-Action (LDA) trigger system and the Power Extractor announced plans to consolidate its manufacturing, assembly and warehousing in the Charlotte, North Carolina area.
Renovations are underway at the facility that will house Para USA, Inc. in Charlotte, North Carolina and are expected to be completed in November 2008. All existing orders and early 2009 orders will be processed through existing channels.
The consolidation process will be phased into North Carolina to keep a continuous supply of the Para firearms going to Para's extensive network of distributors and dealers through the transition period.
The first phase of production will start in 2008 with the assembly of the new Expert Series of firearms.
One of the first pistols to be assembled in Para's Charlotte location will be the new “GI Expert” 1911 pistol. The Para “GI Expert” is an entry level 1911 pistol that will allow new marksmen to own a pistol that will give them what they need to become an Expert shot with the big bore .45.
The second phase of production at the Charlotte manufacturing facility is expected to get underway in January 2009. It will allow Para USA to deliver the first of its new Expert rifles.
The new Para Tactical Target Rifle is the rifle that makes everyone the best shot they can be. The Para Tactical Target Rifle, with its remarkable DIGS operation, substantially enhances accuracy by destroying recoil and allowing you to quickly and easily make repeated hits on your target.
By June 1, 2009, the final phase of the consolidation will be completed and all manufacturing, assembly and distribution of Para firearms will be done from Charlotte, North Carolina.
Para's industry-leading customer service for all Para USA firearms will remain at their Tennessee Customer Service Center through the transition period or until further notice.
The transition to the Charlotte, N.C. headquarters of Para USA, Inc. should be seamless for all of its clients with the only noticeable change being the new address on stationary and a new telephone number to contact Para USA.
Once staffing is completed in Charlotte, N.C. consumers, dealers and distributors will be notified of the new address and phone numbers for Para USA.
