IWI US Company Grows, Requires Move to New, Larger Facility
IWI US will relocate from Lower Paxton Township to Lower Swatara Township in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania to accommodate demand for its products.
Harrisburg, Pa. (November 2017) – IWI US, Inc., a subsidiary of Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) Ltd., announced this week through local media its plans to move to a larger facility in a neighboring township. The new facility features space for manufacturing, assembly and warehousing areas to accommodate IWI US’s continued growth and demand for its Israeli made products, such as the TAVOR®, Galil ACE®, UZI® Pro, Jericho® and law enforcement platforms.
“This move to a larger facility will allow IWI US to expand its manufacturing operations for increased production and the addition of new product lines,” Casey Flack, CEO of IWI US, commented.
IWI US plans to begin the moving process in early Jan. 2018 to coordinate increased sales and the arrival of three brand new products into the famous IWI line-up. IWI US will unveil the TAVOR 7 and the Masada 9mm pistol at the 2018 SHOT Show, held Jan. 23 – 26, 2018 at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada, plus one more very exciting entry still under wraps at this time.
“Since IWI US was launched in 2012, we have seen unprecedented growth, due in part to the reputable brands designed by top Israeli engineers and designers, and all are truly battle tested before civilian models were even considered,” Flack added. “We’ve been very fortunate in a market that is politically swayed that the demand for our products has remained strong and consistently growing.”
Employees at the current facility are expected to transfer to the new, larger facility. Flack indicated that the company will be hiring before the end of 2017 and plans to double the employee base in the next several years.
