CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Para USA has announced plans to consolidate its manufacturing, assembly and warehousing in the Charlotte, North Carolina area.
Renovations are underway at the facility that will house Para USA, Inc. in Charlotte, North Carolina and are expected to be completed in November 2008. All existing orders and early 2009 orders will be processed through existing channels.

The first phase of production will start in 2008 with the assembly of the new Expert Series of firearms.
One of the first pistols to be assembled in Para's Charlotte location will be the new "GI Expert" 1911 pistol, an entry level 1911 pistol. The second phase of production at the Charlotte manufacturing facility is expected to get underway in January 2009. It will allow Para USA to deliver the first of it new Expert rifles.
By June 1, 2009, the final phase of the consolidation will be completed and all manufacturing, assembly and distribution of Para firearms will be done from Charlotte, North Carolina.
Paras customer service for all Para USA firearms will remain at their Tennessee Customer Service Center through the transition period or until further notice.
Once staffing is completed in Charlotte, N.C. consumers, dealers and distributors will be notified of the new address and phone numbers for Para USA.
