Federal Ammunition is one step closer to further expanding its ammunition output with the recent groundbreaking ceremony of its new Raw Materials Warehouse being built in Coon Rapids, MN. The new raw materials storage facility will supposedly help reduce wait times for raw materials to make their way from distributors and into the production facilities located in Anoka County, Minnesota. This new facility will add to the already near-1-million sq/ft footprint that Federal’s ammunition manufacturing facilities currently sit on.

New Raw Materials Warehouse Underway by Federal Ammunition
This year, our company celebrated its 100-year anniversary, and this project continues the legacy of growth and investment in Anoka County,” said Jason Vanderbrink. “This is our first major building on our property within the city of Coon Rapids. Expanding operations across our grounds is very important as we become even more vertically integrated. This project will improve efficiency in our manufacturing process by storing, in close proximity and in one location, the raw materials needed to build ammunition for our loyal customers. I see this as the next big step in continuing our marketplace leadership and expanding our progress as the largest ammunition manufacturer that we are today.
The new multi-million dollar facility will cover an additional 100,000 square feet of space to be used for warehousing purposes and will sit in the eastern part of Federal’s property within the city limits of Coon Rapids, MN. Construction should be underway at the time of writing and Federal’s President Mr. Jason Vanderbrink states that the new warehouse should be operational by early spring of 2023.
Our mission is to empower Federal’s mission statement, which is ‘Build better ammunition in America to create community, power defense and conserve our heritage’, through the buildings we design and construct,” said Tom Becker. “We are also a Minnesota company, and we are proud to be Federal’s partner on this project. We know this new facility will help Federal by eliminating their current need of on-and-off-site material storage, ultimately allowing them to enhance their manufacturing capabilities on their factory floor and advance their overall mission.
