Clint Gerner is one of the owners of Capital Armaments, and he says they’re humbled and amazed by the level of support they’ve received from the Sibley community.

He says that Capital Armaments is currently housed in a temporary location, with groundbreaking for their permanent home in Sibley set for later this spring.

Gerner says that, while the company now employs five people, plans are in place to expand the workforce once they’re in their permanent home.

Capital Armaments is currently located in the southeastern part of Sibley, in the Industrial Park.
