Remington Arms Company LLC on Thursday told employees at sites in seven states, including two productions lines in New York, that it is relocating their jobs to its new facility in Huntsville, AL

“Earlier today we 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,” said Remington spokesperson Teddy Novin.

The companies being relocated and their current locations are:  Advanced Armament Corp, Lawrenceville, GA; Montana Rifleman, Kalispell, MT; TAPCO, Kennesaw, GA; LAR Manufacturing, West Jordan, UT; Para-Ordnance, Pineville, NC; and DPMS, St. Cloud, MN. Additionally, the Bushmaster production and Remington 1911 production lines will also be relocating from Ilion, NY.
