Mossberg Expands Texas Manufacturing Facility

Mossberg Expands Texas Manufacturing Facility

Joining a long list of gun companies moving to or expanding their operations in more gun-friendly states, Mossberg has announced the completion of a major expansion at their Maverick Arms, Inc., facility located in Eagle Pass, Texas.

The 116,000 square-foot addition will help significantly increase Mossberg's manufacturing and distribution capabilities in Texas, according to a release. The company's corporate headquarters and some manufacturing will remain in North Haven, Conn., where Mossberg has been located since 1919.

As with other gun manufacturers expanding operations in gun-friendly states, Mossberg cited Texas' longstanding commitment to the Second Amendment and firearms freedoms as one reason for their expansion at the Eagle Pass facility. Texas Governor Rick Perry's office recognized the Texas Enterprise Fund (TEF), low taxes and skilled workforce as major incentives for Mossberg's investment in their Texas location.

"This TEF investment in Maverick Arms will help create jobs and opportunity in Eagle Pass, while reaffirming Texas' longstanding support of the Second Amendment," said Governor Perry.


Mossberg CEO Iver Mossberg also cited the state's commitment to economic growth contributed to the company's decision.


"Investing in Texas was an easy decision. It's a state that is not only committed to economic growth but also honors and respects the Second Amendment and the firearm freedoms it guarantees for our customers." Mossberg went on to say, "A significant amount of our manufacturing has been based in our Eagle Pass facility since 1989. This new expansion will allow us to take full advantage of the outstanding work ethic of our long-time employees and help us meet an ever-growing demand for Mossberg rifles and shotguns. We thank Governor Perry and TEF for their efforts which made this expansion possible."

Maverick Arms, Inc., houses production, assembly and distribution of shotguns and rifles for the Mossberg, Maverick and Mossberg International brands in the Eagle Pass facility, and 90 percent of the company's total production is based there. The recent expansion, which includes a $3.4 million capital investment, will consolidate more of the company's manufacturing in Texas and will create 50 new jobs.

More information on the new expansion will become available as it is released.
