Remington Firearms has elected to move their base of operations from Ilion, NY to LaGrange, GA where there are plans in place for a new factory and research center. Remington plans to invest $100 million and create 850 jobs in the region. They join Smith & Wesson as the 2nd major manufacturer to make a move to the south to seek a more hospitable environment. Remington has been preparing for the move for some time, already shifting two production lines from Ilion to Huntsville, AL in 2104.
