About Henry Repeating Arms
Henry Repeating Arms is one of the country’s leading rifle manufacturers. Their legendary name dates back to 1860 when Benjamin Tyler Henry invented and patented the first practical repeating rifle during the Civil War. It became known as the "gun you could load on Sunday and shoot all week long.” Henry rifles went on to play a significant role in the frontier days of the American West and soon became one of the most legendary, respected and sought after rifles in the history of firearms. President Lincoln’s Henry hangs in The Smithsonian and has become a national treasure. The company’s manufacturing facilities are in Bayonne, NJ, and Rice Lake, WI.
About Nine Line Apparel
What initially was conceived as a promotional products company between two brothers, evolved into the brand Nine Line Apparel in 2012. It began in Tyler Merritt’s garage, and eventually, the operation moved to a small house. When Tyler was deployed shortly before the holidays in 2013, Daniel and Angela, Tyler’s then pregnant wife, stepped up to manage their first holiday rush - printing, packaging, and shipping shirts throughout Thanksgiving and Christmas. The house didn't sustain the business long, and they moved the company to a small storefront near downtown Savannah in 2014. With the pressure on to grow the brand, Nine Line focused on hiring Veterans, military spouses, and patriotic Americans to manage the explosive growth. Due to the tenacity and innovation of the Nine Line team, the brand exploded, allowing Nine Line to hire over 140 patriotic Americans and veterans by fall of 2016, and growing a fanbase over 1 million strong in under three years.
