“Today, we’re in our American manufacturing facility in Lonoke, Ark. You’ll see that Big Green is back and stronger than ever. Remington is synonymous with America itself,” said Jason Vanderbrink, Remington Ammunition president, from the factory floor.
The new video from Remington, titled “Where’s the Ammo?” features Vanderbrink addressing Second Amendment-supporting Americans straight from the factory floor and answering the titular question of the video.
“I am sick and tired of not being able to find Remington ammunition on the shelf. We are fixing that,” said Vanderbrink. “American manufacturing is about to roar and Remington ammunition is back.”
Last year, with Remington Outdoors facing bankruptcy, Vista Outdoor, the parent company of Federal Premium, purchased the Remington ammunition facility in Arkansas along with many of Remington’s trademarks. Under the new management from Vista Outdoor, production at the plant has resumed to what we’re used to from Remington.
The company’s previous supply chain issues were one of the many reasons that ammunition shelves were often found empty over the past year. More information is also available at the new Remington website.
“Let’s continue to fight for the Second Amendment. Let’s continue to support American manufacturing jobs and it’s always good to say, Big Green is back,” said Vanderbrink at the video’s conclusion.
Last year saw an absolutely incredible number of Americans purchasing firearms, many of whom bought their very first one. With that also came an increased demand for ammunition, which led to shortages throughout the country.
This year already looks to be building upon last year’s trends, so having Big Green back is certainly welcome news.
