Capco Raided by Federal Authorities
Federal agents executed a court-ordered warrant on Capco, a Grand Junction manufacturing company who contracts include the US Government.
Federal agents raided the business located at 1338 Winters Avenue Wednesday (November 8) morning and escorted employees out of the facility. No arrests were made during the raid.
According to Capco's website, they manufacture products for the US military including energetic assemblies, electrical and mechanical components, small arms weapon assemblies, weapon’s mounts, and bomb fin assemblies.
In addition to producing military products for the Department of Defense, the company also designs and manufactures products for law enforcement, and missile and space technology industries.
Cordell Bennigson, CEO of CAPCO, Inc. says the company is cooperating with federal agents in the investigation and says,
As always, CAPCO remains committed to providing our customers with the highest quality products and services. We are cooperating fully with the investigation and we intend to provide the same level of transparency and communication that has earned CAPCO a stellar reputation in the defense community.”
Authorities are not releasing any information about the raid or the reason for the court-ordered warrant. They indicated it will likely be days before any other information will be made available.
