I have no idea, I found it in one of my books. It looks older 1940's maybe...kind of yellowishly aged. I don't know anything about envelopes from back in the day. I have notebook paper from the 1970's that have the same yellowish coloring.

I am pretty sure that now knowing it is an envelope that it is from before 1963.

Other than that I can offer no help. Never heard of the business lol

Google searches suggest that this outfit made some percussion muzzleloaders back in the days before the Zip code was instituted, back before 1963.  I don't see any evidence that they are still in business, at least nothing online.
