MSP Manufacturing Shoots for Perfection in Armory Division

BLOOMINGTON, IND. (September 21, 2021) – Since 1943, MSP Manufacturing has manufactured precision-machined products for the aviation, aerospace and defense industries, developing an industry-leading reputation with virtually all major commercial and military aircraft companies.

MSP Manufacturing has also been a trusted supplier and manufacturer for the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Crane, Indiana, working on many projects and programs to assist the naval shore command. Now, the company is taking its experience, resources and precision excellence to broaden its service with seven new divisions, including Armory.

MSP Manufacturing’s Armory division is led by Vice President Johnny Goode, utilizing his less-than-traditional vice president background, expertise and knowledge to help with intricate armory equipment needs. Goode worked in law enforcement for ten years, spending three as an undercover Narcotics Detective and team member for the regional SWAT team. In addition to that, Goode is also a Sergeant in the Indiana National Guard.

“I’m eager to develop and grow our Armory Division alongside my father in the company he has built over the years,” Goode said. “This division is especially close to my heart and I am dedicated to fixing the issues and pain points of weapons and other gear I saw as a police officer and in serving in the Army.”

Goode has joined forces with one of his former co-workers and CEO of Ripcord Industries, Steve Winenger as the veteran-owned and operated small business was looking for a manufacturer to partner with. Now, MSP Manufacturing and Ripcord Industries are working together to bring additional products to market. Current products being sold include lower receivers, upper receivers, barrels, rails, lower and upper parts kits, complete builds and complete upper receiver groups.

“I was looking for a reputable, experienced manufacturer to help us with product development and original equipment manufacturer needs,” Winenger said. “Being able to partner with a good friend and colleague like Goode, to help with our prototype, research and development is a dream come true. I look forward to bringing our resources and passion for what we do together to continue to enhance our country’s armory needs.”

Both companies have a passion for creating quality products to serve the law enforcement and military segment, and are eager to create a precise, high-quality product for those that need it most.
