Remington Outdoor Company officially announced that it is consolidating several facilities to Remington’s new location in Huntsville, Alabama. Previously, ROC had 19 locations in the United States.
Remington’s Director of Public Affairs and Relations Teddy Novin said, “We have announced the consolidation of multiple company plants into our Huntsville, Alabama facility. This was a strategic business decision to concentrate our resources into fewer locations and improve manufacturing efficiency and quality. We are working hard to retain as many from the affected facilities as possible.”
Among the facilities being relocated to Huntsville are:
- TAPCO of Kennesaw, Georgia
- LAR Manufacturing of West Jordan, Utah
- PARA US of Pineville, North Carolina
- DPMS of St. Cloud, Minnesota
- Advanced Armament Corp of Lawrenceville, Georgia
- Bushmaster (AR-15) production from Illion, New York
- Remington R1 (1911) production from Illion, New York
- Montana Rifleman in Kalispell, Montana
Earlier this year, Remington opened a new 500,000-square-foot plant in Huntsville.
“We plan to create more than 2,000 jobs in Huntsville over the next decade,” said George Kollitides, Chairman and CEO, Remington Outdoor Company. “This additional capacity is essential to fulfill demand and introduce new products. We’ve watched our company grow from 2,400 employees in 2008 to 4,200 employees by the end of 2013.”
