Growing Demand Demands Growing Facilities at Starline Brass
"We have seen an incredible surge in demand for our brass over the past several years," said Robert Hayden Jr., General Manager at Starline. "The most popular calibers never see the inside of our inventory bins because they are out the door almost as fast as they come off the line. We are committed to expanding our capacity to keep up with the demand," Hayden added. To increase capacity, Starline has embarked on a 15,000 square foot expansion to their manufacturing plant in Sedalia, Missouri. This expansion will add almost 50% more manufacturing capacity and give them the space to add equipment to increase production.
In early 2012, Starline was successful in obtaining an Enhanced Enterprise Zone award from the State of Missouri for this expansion. The award is for real and personal property investment and the creation of new full-time jobs at the facility. According to Hayden, the building project will be completed by Thanksgiving so Starline can get their additional production up and running to handle the high volume of orders they traditionally encounter in the first few months of a new year.
Starline is a leader in the development, production and worldwide distribution of both standard and unique caliber handgun brass. The company offers customers more than 80 different calibers, and shipping is free to anywhere in the U.S. except Hawaii and Alaska.
