Creedmoor® Sports, a manufacturer and supplier of premium precision shooting equipment, has completed the purchase of four acres immediately adjacent to their current facility to support long-term growth objectives and allow for facility expansion in the future.
Creedmoor Sports’ facilities are located on the grounds of historic Fort McClellan in Anniston, AL. The former US Army installation is now home to a mix of private industry, government, and military training facilities. Since relocating to Alabama in 2013, Creedmoor Sports has enjoyed a period of strong business growth. The company has recently become more vertically integrated by expanding its in-house manufacturing capabilities. This additional acreage will support a larger campus and will provide the infrastructure for further expansion in the areas of manufacturing, product development, and retail distribution operations.
“Expanding our operational footprint has been a key element of our long-term growth plan for quite some time,” said Bill Gravatt, President of Creedmoor Sports. “The efforts of our hard-working, talented Creedmoor Sports team in areas such as product development, marketing, and operational efficiencies have created this need to expand. We’ve outgrown our current space, and to support our growth in current and new markets, we need to expand our campus. The fact we can do so right here on McClellan is really an honor. The historical significance of the area is appreciated by all of us at Creedmoor and I am sure it will be by the history buffs among our customer base,” added Gravatt.
“Our growth just over the past two years has us really pushing the limits of our current facility,” said John Teachey, V.P. of Operations and Marketing. “Bill touched on a critical point that the real impetus behind this endeavor has been our investment in growing the company; and that investment is working. Fueling this growth are aggressive new product development programs and market expansion plans which will push this need even greater in the not-to-distant future. Continuing to provide our best-in-class customer service, and delivering the products our customers want requires expansion, and we’re very excited to start this journey,” added Teachey.
