Bayonne-based rifle maker Henry Repeating Arms announced today it will begin manufacturing steel centerfire rifles in its Rice Lake, Wis. facility in 2014. The Wis. plant has supplied the Bayonne operation with many components used in all Henry models including receivers, bolts, sights and other internal parts.
According to the announcement, millions of dollars of new computerized machining equipment was invested in the Wis. facility to support the manufacturing of the company's caliber .30-30 and .45-70 rifles and to increase the volume of the components produced for its rimfire rifles. Henry Repeating Arms purchased the 138,000 sq ft Rice Lake facility in 2006 from Wright Products, a subsidiary of FKI Industries, who manufactured their own line of storm door hardware.
