When the Remington bankruptcy sweepstakes ended last fall, Vista Outdoor, makers of Federal, Speer and CCI ammunition was the high bidder for Big Green’s ammunition business. That was very good news. As the nation’s largest producer of ammunition, Vista knows a thing or two about turning out quality gun food in very large quantities.
Vista has been working ever since getting Remington’s Lonoke, Arkansas production facility fully back up, on line, and cranking out rimfire and centerfire ammunition…all during a time of significant supply chain challenges and the biggest consumer demand for ammo since forever.
Now Vista wants to let the world know that process is complete and Big Green is back to cranking out lots and lots of ammunition 24/7/365.
From Remington Ammunition . . .
Remington Ammunition, America’s outdoor brand known around the world for generations by outdoor enthusiasts for its iconic green boxes, today announced the much-anticipated brand homecoming and factory reboot at its Lonoke, Arkansas facility. Hundreds of American workers are now working around the clock under the highest quality standards to meet the ammunition needs of shooters and hunters across the country.
The company just released a video featuring Remington Ammunition President Jason Vanderbrink showing firsthand that Big Green is Back. Vanderbrink tours the plant, talking about his plans to dramatically ramp up production, overcome supply chain issues, and demonstrate that the storied ammunition company is working overtime to address the needs of customers around the world.
Vista Outdoor, the new steward of Remington Ammunition and the Remington brand, took ownership of the “Big Green” Arkansas manufacturing facility last October after acquiring select Remington assets. Under Vanderbrink’s leadership, Remington has been working 24/7 to retool and reopen the plant, hiring hundreds of skilled American workers to revitalize operations.
“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 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.”
