Magpul Industries Moves to Texas and Wyoming

What would the world be like without Magpul PMAGs?

The company is relocating manufacturing, distribution and shipping operations to Cheyenne, Wyoming. Magpul is leasing a 58,000-square-foot manufacturing and distribution facility during the construction of a 100,000-square-foot build-to-suit facility in the Cheyenne Business Parkway. The Wyoming relocation is being completed with support from Governor Matt Mead, the Wyoming Business Council and Cheyenne LEADS.

Magpul is moving its corporate headquarters to Texas. Three northcentral Texas sites are under final consideration, and the transition to the Texas headquarters will begin as soon as the facility is selected. The Texas relocation is being accomplished with support from Governor Rick Perry and the Texas Economic Development Corporation.

“Magpul made the decision to relocate in March 2013 and has proceeded on an aggressive but deliberate path,” said Doug Smith, chief operating officer for Magpul Industries. “These dual moves will be carried out in a manner that ensures our operations and supply chain will not be interrupted and our loyal customers will not be affected.”

The company began a nationwide search for a new base of operations after legislation was enacted in Colorado that dramatically limits the sale of firearms accessories — the core of Magpul’s business. Magpul plans on initially transitioning 92% of its current workforce outside of Colorado within 12 to 16 months and will maintain only limited operations in Colorado.

“Moving operations to states that support our culture of individual liberties and personal responsibility is important,” says Richard Fitzpatrick, chief executive officer for Magpul Industries. “This relocation will also improve business operations and logistics as we utilize the strengths of Texas and Wyoming in our expansion.”

    Magpul rocks. The irony of Colorado legalizing a substance in violation of federal law and banning products that support the Constitution is further proof of the absurdity of the liberal mindset.

    PATRIOTISM BE DAMNED AS IT MAKES PERFECT SENSE AS A PROFIT DRIVEN ENTERPRISE.
    millions in tax breaks by each state, low wage and benefit environment and then some of worse environmental oversight states in nation.
    New clean air water rules costly so move where no one cares what polymers do; just a job that will enrich bureaucrats pockets with workers paying for The $13,000,000.00 tax break.
    wave the red white and blue as they sell to Remington Bushmaster etc their plastics for they grow evermore dependent upon government and overseas markets.

    We the people should vote on the subjects that have to do with our safety and health care not the government on how they think we should live our lives. Thanks magpul for standing for the the people! Run for president!

    for every job a state loses when a gun-industry company moves out, the governor should PERSONALLY reimburse the employees who move with the company for their moving expenses and reimburse the company for those employees’ payroll checks for the next 10 years … NSA, since you are probably reading this, tell Emperor Andronicus Cuomovski in Albany NY he needs to write checks to Kimber, ATI, Remington, etc. While you’re at it, Andy, sign that resignation letter and confession for treason by violation of oath of office regarding upholding the NY and US Constitutions!

    Texas welcomes MAGPUL and its employees to a FREE Republic void of the oppression and deceptive practices of dragonian states, where God, Guns and Guts made this territory a great state. I hope your enterprises flourishes and the state you left loses unimagineable revenues and public support for its backward minded politicians. Again, Texas welcomes MAGPUL…an awesome freedom loving company with a SUPERB product line!
