Kel-Tec CNC Industries has announced it is expanding its production capacity after acquiring a 33,000 square foot facility in Rock Springs, Wyoming, adding to its current 125,000 square foot industrial space in Cocoa, Florida.

“I am thrilled to be a part of this new adventure in our story,” said Adrian Kellgren, director of industrial production. “Wyoming has a rich history as part of the American frontier and it’s fitting for our brand, being that we constantly explore the limits of performance and design, to expand out here.”

The focus of the new facility will be on cutting edge manufacturing technology, next generation research and development and of course, production of the newest trend-setting firearms available.

“This is a milestone for Kel-Tec CNC Industries,” said Director of Sales and Marketing Derek Kellgren. “While steady expansion isn’t anything new to us, this is our first expansion into another State and we couldn’t be more excited about advancing our innovative designs and production processes in Wyoming.”

While the company’s initial start-up will be minimal, the facility can accommodate up to more than 250 employees across multiple industrial disciplines.

“In Wyoming, we value our open spaces, recreation and hunting and proudly defend our 2nd Amendment rights,” said Governor Mark Gordon. “Because of those values and our business-friendly environment I am pleased to welcome KelTec firearms to Wyoming.”

Rock Springs Mayor Timothy A. Kaumo, echoing added support from Sweetwater County officials and the Wyoming Business Council, added, “The City of Rock Springs is beyond excited and proud to have KelTec firearms locating here.

“The future of our company is tied to the future of the American free spirit,” concluded George Kellgren, Founder, Chairman and CEO. “Wyoming has been a leading example of liberty and freedom for America, and it is right that we become part of it.”
