Rio Ammunition has announced the inauguration of a new sporting cartridges manufacturing facility in Marshall, Texas. The company officially cut the ribbon on its new factory on June 25, in the presence of representatives from the state of Texas and Spain's Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The company first entered in the U.S. ammunition market in 2001, when it began importing shotshells from MAXAM Outdoors' plant in Vitoria, Spain. The new facility, which will provide the company with a more direct line to the American consumer, encompasses nearly 105,000 square feet of manufacturing space and has added more than 40 new jobs to the Marshall community. More jobs are expected to become available as the company's footprint grows.

Texas has become home to a number of firearms industry companies in recent years, which didn't escape MAXAM's notice when searching for a U.S. location.

“This is a state-of-the-art technology facility from a quality, environment, safety, and security point of view. Our goal is for Rio Ammunition to add value and progress to the city of Marshall and the state of Texas while also providing shooters and hunters in the U.S. with top quality products and services,” said Jose Fernando Sanchez-Junco, President and CEO of MAXAM.
