Under sunny Wyoming skies and in front of a crowd filled with smiles, Gunwerks broke ground at the site of their future headquarters and manufacturing facility in Cody, Wyoming.
The 44,396-square-foot building on a 5-acre site is slated for completion February 2020 and will provide much-needed manufacturing, warehouse and office space for the growing company.
“We’re practically bursting at the seams,” Gunwerks CEO, Aaron Davidson, explained. “Our team has tripled over the last 2 years and we’ve been forced to split our workforce between several locations to provide space for everyone. This new building will be an amazing resource for our growth, enabling us to put our employees in one facility to encourage collaboration and improve operational efficiencies to continue our grow our business and our brand.”
Over 60 Gunwerks employees and family members were in attendance, in addition to numerous local and state officials involved in the project. The $5.45 million facility will be constructed by Sletten Construction funded by loans and grants secured through economic development group, Forward Cody and the Wyoming Business Council.
“We're excited, after a long planning process, to be on the cusp of building something that has been a priority target for Forward Cody for many years,” said James Klessens, the CEO of Forward Cody. “We're excited to get this project in the ground and for the benefits it will bring to the Cody community.”
