Magpul Industries to move to Wyoming, Texas
Magpul Industries will leave Boulder County and move to Wyoming and Texas, the company said today.
Magpul, which said it would leave Colorado if the Legislature approved new gun laws in 2013, is relocating manufacturing, distribution and shipping operations to Cheyenne and moving its corporate headquarters to Texas, where it is considering three north central Texas sites. The relocation is being accomplished with support from Gov. Rick Perry and the Texas Economic Development Corp.
Magpul plans on initially transitioning 92 percent of its employees to the new locations over 12 to 16 months and will maintain only limited operations in Colorado, the company said.
