Sturm Ruger & Company has been producing firearms since their startup in 1949. Now they are planning an expansion in Rockingham County, North Carolina. The investment will total $10 million and add on to their current location in Mayodan, North Carolina. They also plan to hire 60 new people over the next few years. So this will be a great economic opportunity for the area.
