To meet demand for its growing product lineup, Henry Repeating Arms, a leading firearm manufacturer, is expanding its operations with an 84,000-square-foot building on 13.5 acres in Ladysmith, Wis. Strategically located less than an hour away from the company’s 140,000-square-foot headquarters in Rice Lake, Wis., the new facility will employ more than 100 people in the Rusk County area within the next three years.

The new property gives the company a total of 350,000 square feet of manufacturing space with over 600 employees to support its “Made in America, Or Not Made at All” mantra. The facility will initially machine parts for the company’s lineup of more than 200 models of rifles and shotguns. The Ladysmith acreage also allows for future expansion.

“Staking our flag at a new facility is the beginning of another exciting chapter in our company’s history, and we are wasting no time prepping the building for our machines,” said Andy Wickstrom, president of Henry Repeating Arms. “We thank the state of Wisconsin and Rusk County officials for keeping the door open for us, and we look forward to adding members of another great Wisconsin community to our family.”

“We’re excited to see Henry Repeating Arms make a commitment to Ladysmith, WI, and Rusk County,” said added Andy Albarado, from Rusk County Economic Development. “They are an employer we are eager to see grow in our community for years to come.”

Economic reasons aren’t the only reason Henry Repeating Arms is a welcome corporate neighbor, though. This year alone, the company has helped raise funds to build a memorial for an unsung hero in his home town, sponsored a team at a NASCAR race and more. Its “Guns for Great Causes” program annually creates and sells limited-edition rifles, and the proceeds go to families facing the financial burdens associated with a health-related crisis.
