GENESEO, ILL. – Springfield Armory® is pleased to announce the groundbreaking for a new facility at Geneseo, Ill., which will expand its manufacturing capabilities and provide a new headquarters location.
Representing a significant investment in the community and being done with all local contractors, the new Springfield Armory facility at Geneseo will allow the company to further expand its manufacturing capabilities, grow capacity and increase efficiency.
“Springfield Armory has long set the standard for manufacturing excellence, providing shooters with the top-quality products they demand,” says Dennis Reese, CEO of Springfield Armory. “This new facility will build on our strong reputation for quality and ensure we continue to meet the ever-increasing demand for our products.”
The more than 200,000 square foot facility will house manufacturing, research & development, distribution operations, administration and much more, with initial phases expected to open within the year.
“Springfield Armory has seen unprecedented demand for products such as the Hellcat — the world’s smallest, highest-capacity 9mm — the Model 2020 Waypoint bolt-action, and many other cutting-edge offerings,” explains Stephen McKelvain, President of Springfield Armory. “With this new facility, we will be able to continue to deliver our in-demand products, as well as develop even more new and exciting offerings.”
The new facility will help grow the production of Springfield Armory products such as SAINTs, its respected families of 1911 pistols, the revered M1A, 911 concealed carry pistols, and more.
“This is a company that works extremely hard to provide the best products possible to its customers, holding itself to the highest standards,” says Ken Bowen, Springfield Armory’s Chief Financial Officer. “With the expanded capacity of this new facility, Springfield Armory will continue this tradition, but at an even larger scale.”
From its early beginnings as a family business in the 1970’s, Springfield Armory has maintained its commitment to a “Legacy of Discipline”, a tradition that carries through to its role today as a world-renowned firearms manufacturer. This will be an integral part of its continued growth through the development of this new facility.
