Starline brass announces building expansion.
According to company officials, a growth in market share, the addition of new products and the growing appeal of reloading were factors in the company's decision to expand. The expansion, which company officials say will increase Starline's production capacity by more than 10 percent, also included an investment in state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment.
"Reloading has been a hobby for diehard shooting enthusiasts for a long time, because they want to control every aspect of their loads," said Starline vice president Robert Hayden Jr. "What we're seeing now is that more weekend and occasional shooters and hunters are taking up reloading as raw material increases continue to drive up the cost of factory-loaded ammo."
Starline logged a 17-percent increase in order volume in the last year, according to Hayden. The company plans to expand its vintage black powder offerings and introduce additional mainstream rifle cartridges this year. Starline offers customers more than 80 different calibers of brass cases for handguns and rifles.
