Byrna Opens New Greenfield Manufacturing Facility in Fort Wayne

Commences Serial Production of Byrna Tactical Compact Rifle (TCR)

ANDOVER, Mass., May 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Byrna Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: BYRN) ("Byrna", "the Company", "we" or "us") is excited to announce the opening of its new Fort Wayne manufacturing facility and the commencement of production of the Byrna TCR (Tactical Compact Rifle), the latest in a series of new products Byrna plans to introduce this year. 

New Fort Wayne Manufacturing and Fulfillment Facility

Byrna's new state-of-the-art manufacturing and fulfillment facility which commenced operations on Monday of this week, is specifically designed for the production of non-lethal weapons.  With more than 30,000 square feet, the new production plant doubles the capacity of Byrna's existing factory. The new facility, which is also far more automated than the current factory, is configured to accommodate production of up to 600,000 launchers per year at maximum utilization. "This new factory provides ample production capacity for the foreseeable future.  In addition, the extra space will allow Byrna to comfortably inventory more than 60,000 launchers worth of finished products and component piece parts and expand its quality control operations. With this new facility, Byrna has the ability to continue to grow unimpeded over the next several years," says Bryan Ganz, CEO and President of Byrna.

Byrna TCR

The Byrna TCR is the ultimate in non-lethal home defense.  The TCR is an extremely intuitive, "point and shoot" launcher, that will be easy for both professionals and novices to operate. Capable of shooting 17+ rounds at speeds in rapid succession at speeds in excess of 300 feet per second, the TCR gives homeowners significantly more stopping power than Byrna's handheld launchers. The TCR comes equipped with both a 12-round and a 7-round magazine which allows users the option to utilize either configuration. Additional features of the Byrna TCR include flip up sights for superior target acquisition, trigger enabled CO2 activation, and buttstock for stabilization. The Byrna TCR Pro Bundle will retail for $749 and be marketed to both consumer and law enforcement across all sales channels in the coming weeks, starting initially with pre-orders on and select dealers. An array of TCR accessories including enhanced sighting systems will be available in the coming months.
