It’s Official: Ruger is coming to North Carolina

Written By: Bob - Jul• 08•13


From Ruger HQ:

Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. (NYSE: RGR) announced today that it plans to open its third manufacturing plant, a 220,000 square foot facility in Mayodan, North Carolina. This will be the Company’s first major expansion in over 25 years and it is expected to be finalized in August.

The Company currently employs over 2,000 people in its two plants in Newport, New Hampshire and Prescott, Arizona.

That puts the Ruger plant right down the road from Remington’s home office, and brings with it some good manufacturing jobs for the area.

    Damn you, Ruger! Texas would have been much better! I’ll never buy another Ruger! Ok, that last part is a lie. I really like their products and am glad to see them move to a better place. ::grinz:: Texas would have been a better move though as it’s closer to me.

    The South will need firearms makers in the new country that will be formed when the dear one get through destroying this country.

    Any idea what they’ll be making? Or just closing the NH plant?

    Just pray NC doesn’t turn purple-ish…

    How about opening up a couple lines to manufacture Mini-14 30-rounders? I need some more.
