Big Green is Back: Remington Ammo in Steady Production
Acquired last year by Vista Outdoor, the same company that owns CCI and Federal, Remington Ammunition is back in production, full swing.
Vista was approved to purchase Remington Outdoors' Lonoke, Arkansas, ammo facility by a federal bankruptcy court last October, and it has been actively rebooting the brand. This has included retooling and reopening the plant and hiring hundreds of skilled American workers to revitalize its operations, with an eye towards producing a quality product.
“Today marks a historic milestone for our industry … I am joined by the hard-working crew at Remington Ammunition, the entire team at Vista Outdoor, and outdoor and shooting sports enthusiasts across America in celebrating the rebirth and resurgence of Remington Ammunition,” said Remington Ammunition President Jason Vanderbrink.
“The shooting sports industry has experienced unprecedented growth and demand for high-quality ammunition, in large part driven by millions of new legal firearms owners joining our community over the last year. Our message to new owners and to our millions of die-hard Remington Ammunition fans is that our operations are in full swing, our quality control is second to none and our entire team is working tirelessly to make more ammo,” said Vanderbrink.
