Henry Gives Exclusive Factory Tour
“Made in America or not made at all,” isn’t just a motto for us. It’s at the very core of the Henry DNA right alongside providing top-tier customer service and manufacturing a product that you can be just as proud to own as we are to make it. It’s also a promise to our customers and the more than 450 people of Wisconsin and New Jersey that Henry Repeating Arms employs.
To show our commitment to this promise we invited the host of Henry TV and YouTube trickshooter, 22Pinkster, to visit our Rice Lake, WI facility and film the making of a Henry H010 .45-70 from beginning to end. The video marks the first time a full tour of the facility is shown to the public.
The tour is guided by Vice President and General Manager Andy Wickstrom, who has headed up the Rice Lake operations since the factory was purchased by Henry in 2006. This location started out by supplying our Bayonne, NJ facility with parts and then progressed to making fully assembled rifles with the steel .30-30 and .45-70. Now, this facility manufactures and ships almost half of Henry’s over 150 different models.
As you watch this video we hope you will take a moment to reflect on the number of hands a Henry rifle or shotgun passes through before it’s boxed up and shipped out. Each of those skilled hands belongs to a hardworking American who takes great pride in what they do, and we hope that same pride carries over to owning a Henry.
