CrossBreed Holsters, an advanced manufacturer of handmade firearms holsters, recently announced plans to invest in their manufacturing plant in Springfield, Missouri. The expansion represents $600,000 in capital investment and is expected to create 10 new jobs in the region.
“During this pandemic, our citizens have relied on new opportunities to support their families and livelihoods,” said Missouri Governor Mike Parson. “CrossBreed Holsters’ expansion is another example of resilience and dedication of Missouri’s businesses to the people of our state.”
Over the last several years, CrossBreed Holsters has experienced significant workforce growth, with their team growing by 50 percent. The company’s new facility will accommodate their anticipated future growth.
“The high standard of quality built into every product we sell and ingrained into every employee we have has continued to propel our business to newer and greater levels of success each year,” said Carol Craighead, CrossBreed Holsters Owner. “Each position we add is not only an investment in our business, but an investment in Springfield and all of greater Southwest Missouri that we are so fortunate to call home.”
Established in 2005, CrossBreed Holsters’ products have gained national recognition for their innovative design and high-quality features without the nonfunctional elements of traditional holsters. The company has a strong focus on customer service with the intention that each customer will be a customer for life.
“We are excited about CrossBreed Holsters’ expansion in Springfield,” said Department of Economic Development Director Rob Dixon. “Businesses continue to choose Missouri to expand because we focus on workforce development, infrastructure, and maintaining our pro-growth business climate.”
