This 633,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility will serve as our centralized logistics, warehousing, and distribution operation for all of our products, facilitating our growth, enhancing our efficiencies, and allowing us to better serve customers across our entire organization. This is an important strategic initiative supporting our objective to be the leading provider of quality products for the shooting, hunting, and rugged outdoor enthusiast.”
Two Years ago then-Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens announced the project in a video posted to Facebook during a visit to Green Valley Rifle and Pistol Club welcoming the company with open arms to the Show Me State, stating, “Missouri has always been a great Second Amendment state, a wonderful state, for people who love firearms and treasure their Second Amendment rights.”
We're proud to announce that Smith & Wesson plans to create hundreds of new jobs in Missouri. We're always fighting for more jobs with higher pay, and we're proud to welcome this great company to our state.
