The article entitled “New Ammo from Old Machines” showcases the ingenuity and resourcefulness of Federal employees. To meet the growing demand for ammunition, Federal was able to refurbish and re-tool several retired loading machines. Bringing these machines back to life was no easy task but shows the talent and abilities of the employees. 

“Demand for ammunition is high and Federal is doing everything we can to meet demand,” said Erik Carlson, Federal Ammunition Senior Director of Operations. “The fact that Federal employees were able to fix up old loading machines, make replacement parts for them and get them up and running again is truly incredible.”

The article entitled “Federal’s Families” shares the stories of the legacy families within Federal Ammunition. Being based in Anoka, Minnesota for decades has allowed Federal Ammunition to be a major part of the community. The generations of residents to the area that have been Federal employees has made a big impact on the success of the company. 

“A special thing about Federal Ammunition is the people that have worked here for decades and the families who have generations that have been a proud part of the Federal family,” continued Carlson. “Generations of employees show how much working for Federal means to these families and how much we appreciate all of our employees.” 

Each month through the end of 2022, Federal Ammunition will be uploading additional content focused on the rich history of this American ammunition company.
