The latest wave of immigration from Italy is finally here…and not a moment too soon!
There’s terrific news in the ammunition world today: Fiocchi Ammunition is investing $15 million dollars to build a new manufacturing plant in Little Rock, Arkansas, bringing both jobs and (oh please please please) some high-quality ammunition stock to America’s empty shelves. The company may be relatively new to our shores, but their history and experience in creating premium ammunition dates back to 1876. Fiocchi’s new manufacturing facility will be churning out centerfire rounds as well as shotshells as quickly as we can buy them.
What a lot of people don’t know is that European gun control is relatively “new” (well, compared against the length of European history, that is). Fiocchi was founded in 1876 in Lecco, Italy, so their ammunition experience is roughly equivalent to that of American ammo giant Winchester. By the 1980s, Fiocchi immigrated to Missouri…but these days, it’s all about Arkansas. That’s no accident, as Second Amendment-friendly Arkansas governor Asa Hutchinson explained.
“It is with great pleasure that we welcome Fiocchi to Arkansas,” Gov. Asa Hutchinson said. “One of my goals as governor has been to increase foreign-direct investment in the state, and this is a great example of what can happen when the state and local partners work together to nurture relationships with current and prospective leaders across the globe. I look forward to watching Fiocchi grow and prosper here.”
Isn’t it remarkable how letting businesses know that they are welcome tends to result in new jobs? “The momentum continues in Little Rock and central Arkansas with another new company announcement,” added Little Rock Mayor Frank Scott, Jr. “Fiocchi’s decision to establish a new manufacturing location speaks volumes of our skilled workforce, logistical advantages, and ease of doing business. We appreciate Fiocchi and look forward to a long relationship with them.”
