Lyman® Products Acquires Mark 7 Reloading® to Strengthen its Position within the Reloading Market

Lyman® Products will combine their world-class manufacturing with Mark 7 Reloading®’s world-class engineering to reach the commercial and competitive shooting (prosumer) marketplace.

Middletown, Conn. (May 2019) Lyman® Products is extremely pleased to announce that, effective immediately, Mark 7® Reloading is now a Lyman brand and a part of the Lyman family, which includes Pachmayr, TacStar, A-Zoom, Trius, and Butch’s. In order to strengthen and expand upon their already well-respected position within the reloading market, Lyman Products saw a growth opportunity within the reloading space by combining its world-class manufacturing with Mark 7’s world-class engineering.

Mark 7 has brought change and innovation to the market since their introduction of the popular Autodrive systems in 2015. Since then they have continued to bring new and dynamic advancement to the reloading category with their Evolution™, Evolution Pro and Revolution® Reloading Systems. Now in its sixth year of operation, Mark 7 has a full line of reloading presses ranging from hand operation to light commercial operation.

Lyman president and CEO, Rick Ranzinger, said, “This was a natural fit for us as the Mark 7 brand and products dovetail nicely with our existing reloading products and initiatives. Lyman Products provides strong manufacturing capabilities and brand recognition that will enable Mark 7 to grow to new heights. We are excited to embark on this new chapter as we continue the Lyman mission to provide innovative products designed by shooters, for shooters, since 1878.”

The Mark 7 Company and management team will continue to stay on and assist Lyman in building the Mark 7 brand. Mark 7 will remain at their Fort Myers, Florida location, and their products will continue to be made right here in the United States and assembled at the Florida facility, with many of their parts being manufactured at Lyman’s Connecticut facility.
