Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt visited several businesses in Owasso and Broken Arrow on Aug. 11. He was accompanied with Lt. Gov. Matt Pinnell, Department of Commerce Executive Director Brent Kisling and Economic Development Director Jennifer Springer. They toured an aircraft manufacturing plant in Owasso and Rise Manufacturing in Broken Arrow.
Rise now concentrates on manufacturing firearms and trigger mechanisms, and it has been reported that the company used $70,000 from Stitt’s new Manufacturing Reboot Program to buy new equipment.
According to Rise, as a full-service fabrication and machining company, it provides custom manufacturing solutions for high-volume production.
“We specialize in creating quality-certified parts, vessels, and structures for the defense, energy, and aerospace, industries. Because we provide both fabrication and machining services in our 55,000-square-foot facility, we offer a seamless, stress-free process that eliminates the added time and hassle of working with multiple vendors. Our Makino pallet cell system and Swiss machines aid us in providing superior services for high-volume runs.” said company President Matt Torres.
We take pride in our nation and in making a contribution to its defense. Our manufacturing capabilities include the creation of components and complete products for various aspects of homeland security and defense. If we’re creating something for a defense contract, we realize that once it leaves our shop, it could be out in the field helping save lives and completing successful missions. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to create high-quality parts that have a zero failure rate. We take this stuff seriously, and we’re good at it.”
Rise specializes in small arms weapons systems and custom high-volume manufacturing solutions. As part of this, we machine parts, components, and subassemblies for all types of firearms.  Because we employ a talented weapons expert and extremely skilled machinists, we make parts that few companies can manufacture.
An ITAR-registered company, Rise has a higher level of security for our facilities and technical data. Our high-security building has an extensive camera system, alarms, and additional advanced security measures.
“Our partnership with our sister company RISE Armament allows us to provide work for firearms contracts. As a defense contractor, we take pride in our work. We get to contribute to the defense of our nation and provide for our troops. We don’t take that lightly,” Torres said.
