Congressman, governor attend ribbon cutting for gun manufacturer

News

JACKSONVILLE, Ark. – A leading manufacturer of firearms, ammunition, airguns, and suppressors expanded its company in Jacksonville. 

Sig Sauer held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the facility this morning. 

The facility produces brass and bullets and loads premium pistol and rifle ammunition for the military, local law enforcement, and commercial use. 

Sig Sauer President Ron Cohen spoke about the state of the art facility.

Governor Hutchinson and Congressman French Hill also talked about how this helps to boost the Arkansas Economy. 

“This is really great for central Arkansas because they started out with 60 employees now they’re up to 160. They’re growing as a company but it also helps small towns across Arkansas that have contracts with Sig Sauer supply whether it’s cartridges, brass or whatever the items are,” says Governor Hutchinson.

After the ceremony, Governor Hutchinson along with Congressman French Hill and others got a tour of the new facility.
