Sturm, Ruger & Co.’s top executive expressed confidence Wednesday in its new firearms manufacturing plant in Mayodan by making it the production site for many of its new products. The introductions include two styles of pistols, two styles of rifles and a shotgun.
Michael Fifer told analysts the company currently has fewer than 100 employees at the plant. It is using about 20,000 square feet of its 220,000-square-foot capacity. Ruger bought the plant in September.
