Magpul warned anti-liberty Colorado Democrats in advance that if they passed citizen control laws, that the company was going to take their jobs and taxes elsewhere. The anti-liberty Democrats passed a raft of gun control legislation anyway, and so Magpul is making good on their promise to leave.
MAGPUL INDUSTRIES ANNOUNCES PLANS FOR RELOCATION
Company Is Moving Operations to Wyoming and Texas
Magpul Industries announced today that it is relocating its operations to Wyoming and Texas.
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 North Central 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” says 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 12-16 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.”
That is their option to do so and I support it. If you vote people into the leadership for your states that are against the 2nd Amendment, freedoms, free market, etc they your state may lose jobs, manufacturing and tax revenue. For states like Wyoming and Texas will continue to thrive. It is called the FREE MARKET SYSTEM and one day the Democrats, Socialist & Communist “may” wake up, but probably not.
Hopefully the people” will wake up in this country and understand that people like Obama are NOT looking out for you. He and many others are getting you to rely on the Gov for EVERYTHING. Then one day he can pull the plug and you will be a slave to the Gov. You got to start really thinking about how thing work before you we are entrapped and totally dependent on the Gov. How many people do you know that if the handouts STOPPED would be totally screwed for place to live, food, water, clothing, medical care. Start thinking for yourself and stop just going with the flow in 2014
