New Rio Ammunition plant opens in Marshall

Written by Conor Harrison, Lone Star Outdoor News

The Marshall Economic Development Corp., along with dignitaries from Rio Ammunition and its parent company, Maxam, members of the media and local citizens were treated to a tour of the newly-opened Rio Ammunition plant in Marshall on Thursday.

The state-of-the-art, 105,000-square-foot facility will produce 1,000,000 shotgun shells each day when it is up and running at 100 percent capacity, letting Rio fulfill North American customer orders in a fraction of the time it used to take.

The project broke ground in April, 2014, and will employ 90 full-time jobs in the Marshall area.
