Firearms manufacturer Nighthawk Custom announced Tuesday the expansion of its facility in Berryville (Carroll County).

The company has invested more than $750,000 in a new building and equipment. It previously expanded in 2015 with a $1.25 million machine shop.

Nighthawk received $125,000 in Community Block Development Grant funds for equipment from the Arkansas Economic Development Commission.

"We are very thankful for the support of the AEDC team and Gov. Asa Hutchinson," Owner Mark Stone said in a news release. "We love the state of Arkansas and its people. We have been blessed with a group of very talented people who have the gift of old-time craftsmanship and great customer service.

"Our new facility will improve our productivity and provide a great atmosphere for our employees as well as the numerous visitors who tour Nighthawk each year."

Nighthawk makes custom M1911 pistols, revolvers, shotguns and tactical knives for competition shooters, military, law enforcement and self-defense. It employs 52 full-time workers.

"Nighthawk's expansion proves that Arkansas has the tools needed for businesses – large and small – to succeed," AEDC Executive Director Mike Preston said. "The company is establishing itself as a world leader in custom firearms, and we are excited that we can assist them as they continue to grow and expand in their home state."

Nighthawk Custom was founded in Arkansas in 2004.
