Byrna Technologies is growing their manufacturing presence in Fort Wayne – Inside INdiana Business

Byrna Technologies Expanding Manufacturing Operations in Fort Wayne to Meet Unprecedented Demand from Celebrity Influencers”.

Byrna Technologies Inc. is expanding its manufacturing operations in Fort Wayne in response to an unprecedented surge in demand. The company, which is based in Andover, Massachusetts, manufactures “less-lethal” personal security products, including pistols and rifles that shoot pellets, as well as defense sprays and backpack body armor.

In a news release, CEO Bryan Ganz said the increase in demand is the result of a recent expansion of the company’s celebrity influencer network, which has led to upswings in web traffic and sales. “Expanding our manufacturing capacity is imperative if we hope to be able to meet this rising demand and provide seamless delivery to our valued customers,” Ganz said.

The company has increased its production facility personnel by 25%, though a specific number of new employees or a total employee headcount was not provided. A second assembly line has been opened as well. Byrna did not respond to a request for more information from Inside INdiana Business.

Ganz stated that this move is expected to positively influence the company’s profit margins over time by reducing production costs through economies of scale and refining their operational processes. The new employees were hired in late January and are now supporting the new line after undergoing on-the-job training.
