SIG Sauer to Relocate its Ammunition Manufacturing Operation to Arkansas

May 06, 2016  | 

SIG Sauer Inc. announced it will relocate its ammunition manufacturing operation from Eubank, KY, to Jacksonville, AR. Documents for the move were finalized with the state of Ark. in April, which followed a preliminary announcement by Ark. Governor Asa Hutchinson at the 2016 Las Vegas SHOT Show. 

“SIG Sauer was one of the first calls I made as Governor, and I am delighted they chose our state when making the decision to expand,” said Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson

SIG Sauer will relocate its Elite Performance Ammunition manufacturing operation to a soon-to-be renovated building in Jacksonville. The company said it expects to employ 50 people in the initial relocation phase, with additional jobs planned for the future. The new site provides significant room for expansion, a key factor in the company’s decision to relocate to Jacksonville.

“We have been searching for a permanent relocation site for our ammunition division for several years and now, coupled with an excellent physical location and exceptional economic incentives provided by the State of Arkansas, we have found the ideal site,” said Dan Powers, president of the SIG Sauer Ammunition Division. “The new location in Jacksonville gives us the room we need to expand as we continue to grow and is also beneficial from a shipping and logistical standpoint.” 

SIG Sauer said it expects the new facility will be running by the end of the year.
