West Virginia Governor Earl Ray Tomlin said, "We're proud of the business climate we've created in our state and look forward to seeing this project come to fruition. We're always excited to see companies locate and expand in West Virginia, and Ranger Scientific's plan to hire hundreds of West Virginia workers is great news."
"We're proud to be an American company, based right here in West Virginia," said Daniel Pearlson, Ranger's President & CEO. "Ranger considered seven different states and spent many months in search of its permanent base of operations. Ranger would like to thank the fine people of Texas, Alabama, Tennessee, and Kentucky for all of their efforts. We are very fortunate and proud to make our new home in the Kanawha Valley of West Virginia."
ABOUT RANGER SCIENTIFIC
Ranger Scientific is one of the largest industrial start-up companies in the United States. Based in West Virginia, Ranger's "Olympus" facility will produce more than 500 million rounds of "harmonically-tuned" rifle ammunition each year. Harmonically tuned ammunition can be more than twice the accuracy of "match grade" ammunition, but until now had to be custom-made by hand. Harmonically tuned ammunition is used in Olympic and other international competitions, by expert hunters the world over, and in various specialized US military applications. Harmonically-tuned ammunition can cost many times the price of less accurate "generic" rounds, including "match grade" varieties. Ranger's exclusive technology enables it to mass-produce harmonically-tuned ammunition at comparable cost to generic ammunition. Consumers will buy their harmonic ammo off-the-shelf from sporting goods and retail outlets across the USA. The company will mass-produce its harmonically-tuned rifle ammunition for consumer and military customers.
