New facility located in Boise, Idaho has room to grow.
Virginia Beach, Virginia, December 28, 2016 – SENTRY Products Group has announced the opening of a new production facility located in Boise, Idaho.
The new facility will support U.S.A. manufacturing, global sourcing and distribution of SENTRY’s growing portfolio of products. “Boise, Idaho was an easy choice as we had operated a similar facility in this area during our BLACKHAWK! days,” stated Terry Naughton, President of SENTRY. This location has the flexibility to scale to both production and warehouse space to accommodate planned growth.
As part of this expansion, Mr. Sid Gray has joined SENTRY’s executive team as Vice President – Manufacturing Operations. Mr. Gray’s prior experience includes Engineer and Management roles at both BLACKHAWK! and Michaels of Oregon. Additionally, he worked as Director of Continuous Improvement and engineering efforts at numerous locations with ATK/Vista Outdoors.
“I am excited to be part of SENTRY Products Group,” stated Gray, “I’m back working with a team that I trust, and I have been given the opportunity to design this facility from the ground up using Lean principles to maximize employee engagement and process improvement.” The new facility is very familiar to Gray since he worked in this location with Michaels of Oregon (Uncle Mike’s) from 1999 to 2004.
“The expansion of our US production facility provides faster delivery on our current offerings while supporting our growth into newly announced product lines including bags, packs, belts, cases, optic covers and more. The investment in this facility supports the new product line additions and will allow for a full complement of production staff”, stated Naughton. “What we are most proud of is creating jobs right here in the U.S.A. and bringing our production team members back together again.”
