“Run Out Of The State” To Leave New York

“Run Out Of The State”: Famous Firearm Factory, Open Since 1828, To Leave New York As conditions in New York get worse and worse, particularly for conservatives and conservative-coded businesses, such as gu’n companies, the exodus from the state is continuing.

Among those done with dealing with the state is FlREARM manufacturer Remington, which is now closing a famous manufacturing plant it opened in 1828.

Remington opened a second plant in Huntsville, Alabama, in 2014. That plant will remain open, which makes sense given that Alabama is far more friendly to FlREARM owners and firearms generally than New York. The New York plant closure will be complete by March of 2024.

The plant that Remington is closing is in the town of Ilion, New York. The facility is the longest-operating FlREARM manufacturing plant in America and employs three hundred people from the surrounding town, many of whom are part of families who have worked there for generations.

In a memo to employees, the company said, “I am writing to inform you that FlREARM , LLC has decided to close its entire operation at 14 Hoefler Avenue, NY 13357. The Company expects that operations at the Ilion Facility will conclude on or about March 4, 2024.”
