Today we are taking a look back at American Outdoor Brands’ decision to expand with a new distribution center near Columbia, Missouri.
In March, American Outdoor Brands Corporation, a company that represents a broad portfolio of entities in the hunting and outdoor enthusiast market, including Smith & Wesson, announced plans to establish a national distribution center, creating around 300 jobs in central Missouri.
“Earlier this month, I sat down with James Debney, the CEO of American Outdoor Brands, in our office and told him about our vision for a state with more jobs and bigger paychecks,” said Missouri Governor Eric Greitens. “They are committed to growing with our state and creating jobs for the people of Missouri. Our top priority is bringing more opportunities to the people of Missouri and growing our economy. We’re fighting for more jobs every day, and we’re grateful for strong leaders in the private sector who recognize the strength and potential of Missouri’s workforce. We are thrilled to announce more investment and hundreds of jobs from a great company in Missouri.”
