FN Herstal Announces Consolidation into FN America

FN-USAThe Herstal Group recently announced their decision to consolidate FN Manufacturing, LLC in Columbia, S.C., and FNH USA, LLC in McLean, Va. into a single entity, FN America, LLC.

The new organization will be headquartered in McLean, Va., while production facilities will remain in South Carolina.

FN America will be led by current President and CEO of FNH USA Mark Cherpes.

According to a news release, the merger will result in many benefits for distributors, dealers and consumers, such as "streamlined development and production of existing and new products and services" and better product and customer care management for the company's military, law enforcement and commercial business lines.


"The consolidation of FN Manufacturing and FNH USA creates an exciting opportunity for efficiency, growth and profitability," Cherpes said.  "This merger will ensure a stronger, more agile organization that is better poised to meet current and future U.S. market challenges."


The consolidation process is currently underway, with Jean-Louis Vanderstraeten retiring as president and CEO of FN Manufacturing, LLC and occupying a new role as advisor to the FNA America chairman of the board. Additional changes to complete the merger are expected in the coming months.

FN Manufacturing, LLC and FNH USA, LLC produce a number of firearms for military, law enforcement and civilian use ranging from the M240, M249 machine guns to the FNP, FNX and FNS pistol lines, and the FN 15 series of modern sporting rifles.

More information will be provided as it is released.
