Henry Names Andy Wickstrom as New Company President
Andy Wickstrom started working with Henry first as a supplier back in 1998 through his position as Director of Operations at Wright Products. In 2006 some Wright Products assets including their 140,000 square foot facility in Wisconsin were acquired by Anthony Imperato. In 2015, Wickstrom was promoted to the positions of both General Manager and Vice President to oversee the 110,000 square foot facility in New Jersey. During these 15 years with Henry, he worked to promote the growth of the company, aid new-product development, implement lean manufacturing practices, and expand company operations. Henry Repeating Arms now has more than 550 employees across its two locations and has increased its catalog to over 200 different firearms.
Helping to grow Henry in the last 15 years has been an absolute pleasure and the highlight of my career. In my new role, I look forward to continuing to work with Mr. Imperato to execute our shared strategic vision while maintaining the culture, character, and passion that brought us to the table and has served us well thus far.

Anthony Imperato has spoken to the influence that Mr. Wickstrom has had on the company and feels confident that he will continue to guide the company in the right direction as indicated by his quote below.
Mr. Wickstrom has been our de facto President for the past few years. His official appointment is long overdue. He has worked hard for these past 15 years and earned this position. He has the talent, the energy, my trust, and respect.
