Jason Vanderbrink, the president of Remington Ammunition, put out a video last week titled “Where’s the ammo?”
“You know what, I am sick and tired of not being able to find Remington Ammunition on the shelves,” says Vanderbrink. “We are fixing that.”
Vanderbrink explains that following its bankruptcy proceedings in the Fall, it took some time for Big Green to find its footing once again. Executives needed to hire new workers and sign contracts with suppliers as part of a larger plan to get things up and running.
“American manufacturing is about to roar. And Remington Ammunition is back,” says Vanderbrink. “Our work force is doing fantastic, our raw materials really came through, so now Remington is going 24/7. The Big Green is back! And everyone will get to enjoy the quality ammunition that Lonoke Arkansas makes.”
Vanderbrink assures purchasers that in coming back the company will never “sacrifice quality to get more ammo into the marketplace.”
This is welcome news, for sure! Hopefully, Big Green can put a big dent in the current ammo drought many of us are witnessing around the country. But only time will tell.
Vista Outdoor officially acquired Remington’s ammunition and accessories businesses in October of 2020. That included the ammo plant in Lonoke, Arkansas.
