Sibley, Iowa — A new manufacturing facility is to be built in Sibley, and there’s going to be a groundbreaking ceremony on Monday, April 27th.
Capital Armament Company CEO, Clint Gerner says that the company plans an official ground-breaking ceremony for their 8,000+ square-foot office and manufacturing facility at 11:00 AM. The ceremony will be held at the building site located at the junction of Highways 9 and 60 just north of Northland Buildings and the Growing Edge facilities in the Osceola County Enterprise Park. The public is invited and encouraged to attend.
Osceola County Economic Development coordinator Mike Earll says Capital Armament is a firearms and ammunition manufacturer and dealer founded by three friends and veterans. The company manufactures purpose-built ammunition, with a focus on the competition shooting market as well as law enforcement applications. He says Capital Armament also manufactures law enforcement firearms and sells a line of smokeless gun powders.
Earll says the company moved its business operations from Mendota Heights, Minnesota to Sibley, Iowa in January of 2015 and have begun production in a temporary facility.
Completion of the office and manufacturing facility is scheduled for September of 2015.
Company officials say that this “state-of-the-art” facility will allow the company to expand its manufacturing capabilities, improve efficiency, and begin the process of hiring additional employees to meet the growing demand for their products. Company officials say they are excited to be located and growing in Osceola County and look forward to playing an active role in the community for many years to come.
