Hodgdon® Announces Closure of GOEX Facility


     Effective immediately, Hodgdon Powder Company, Inc. has made the decision to cease manufacturing operations at the company’s Camp Minden, Louisiana site while evaluating strategic options for the black powder business.

      The business will wind down operations while an evaluation process on the future of the black powder business takes place. Strategic options for the GOEX and Olde Eynsford brands of black powder, along with the manufacturing capabilities, will include a potential sale of the business. All affected employees will be retained through December 31, 2021 to assist in an orderly closing of the site and receive severance commensurate with their years of service to the company.

     The Hodgdon Powder Co., Inc has been honored to have been a part of the GOEX Powder legacy and sustains a fond appreciation for sporting customers who have enjoyed shooting GOEX powders.

Rough piece of news for the black shooters.  Old Eynesford was/is an old stand by - particularly for re-enactors and the flintlock crowd.  I hope some sort of business arrangement can be made that will accommodate the workers and the manufacturing facility remaining a functioning entity.
