DENVER — A company that produces ammunition magazines for guns is expected to shut down its operations in Colorado in the first quarter of next year.
The Denver Post reports (http://dpo.st/15AY2NE ) about 100 employees at Erie-based Magpul Industries were notified in October that they would lose their jobs.
Magpul decided to move its production, distribution and shipping operations to Cheyenne, Wyoming, and its headquarters to Texas after Colorado enacted gun control laws last year. In September, the Wyoming State Loan and Investment Board approved an $8.3 million grant to help Magpul move its manufacturing to Cheyenne.
The company will vacate its 100,000-square-foot Erie facility but plans to keep a small Colorado office for regional support.
