Kel-Tec CNC Industries is expanding its production capacity with the acquisition of a new 33,000-square-foot facility in Rock Springs, Wyoming. The new facility in the Cowboy State will augment Kel-Tec’s 125,000-square-foot industrial space located in Cocoa, Florida.

“I am thrilled to be a part of this new adventure in our story,” said Adrian Kellgren, Kel-Tec’s director of industrial production. “Wyoming has a rich history as part of the American frontier and it’s fitting for our brand, being that we constantly explore the limits of performance and design, to expand out here.”

Kel-Tec firearms are known for innovation and performance, so the new facility will focus on cutting edge manufacturing technology, research and development and producing the trend-setting firearms.

“While steady expansion isn’t anything new to us, this is our first expansion into another State and we couldn’t be more excited about advancing our innovative designs and production processes in Wyoming,” said Kel-Tec’s Director of Sales and Marketing, Derek Kellgren.

Although the company’s initial start-up will be small, the Rock Springs facility is designed to grow up to 250-plus employees across multiple industrial disciplines.

“In Wyoming, we value our open spaces, recreation and hunting and proudly defend our Second Amendment rights,” said Governor Mark Gordon. “Because of those values and our business-friendly environment I am pleased to welcome Kel-Tec firearms to Wyoming.”

“The future of our company is tied to the future of the American free spirit,” said George Kellgren, Kel-Tec founder, chairman and CEO. “Wyoming has been a leading example of liberty and freedom for America, and it is right that we become part of it.”
