Rifle Manufacturer Exapanding Rice Lake Plant

Rice Lake, Wisconsin
Rice Lake, Wisconsin

Duluth, MN (KDAL) - Expansion is coming to a Rice Lake manufacturer.  Henry Repeating Arms says next year it will begin manufacturing rifles at the 138-thousand square foot plant, which they purchased in 2006.  So far the Wisconsin facility and its 100 workers have been churning out receivers, bolts, sights and other parts for the New Jersey based company, whose motto is ‘Made in America Or Not Made At All.’  With the change, more job openings are expected, though no growth estimates were given.  Henry Owner and President Anthony Imperato says of the move (quote) “I am proud of what we have accomplished in Wisconsin.  I decided to expand our operations here because of the outstanding job our employees do to help us meet increased demand.” (end quote)
