Iconic Remington Factory set to close for good

I did some work as a contractor in the Ilion plant in the 1980’s. Even back then, it felt old and inefficient. Cerberus then came in, milked as much capital as they could out of the combined firm, and didn’t bother with pesky details such as quality control or updating the Ilion facility. They got theirs.

The bankruptcy trustees and creditors’ committee cared just as little about firearms manufacturing as Cerberus. The latter in particular loved the settlement — it meant one fewer calls on the remaining assets.

When you add in union contracts and NY politics, the reopening of Ilion was pretty much doomed.

I feel for those folks... but as someone who worked for a manufacturing company in a small town... if you paid attention the signs were there it was closing.

Not saying they had much choice but it really shouldn't have come as a surprise
 
I would not call Georgia a "friendly" state for gun manufacturing, the state is heavily D because of the gimm me class in the urban areas.

It is a reprieve from NY but by no means a safe haven

In November 2021, Remington Firearms announced that its global headquarters, a new advanced manufacturing facility, and a research and development center would locate in LaGrange, In September 2022, Beretta Holding S.A., through its subsidiary Norma Precision Inc., announced plans to expand its footprint in Georgia and build a new manufacturing, assembly, and distribution facility in Bryan County.
There are more than 80 small and medium-sized enterprises scattered throughout the state. A few of these companies are:

They got screwed by multiple parties:
1. The old owners management of Remington that didn't keep the company up to date.
2. The Cerberus Capital scumbags that bought the company to play spreadsheet games with debt to enrich themselves with stock manipulation.
3. The union that did not advise the old owners how to run the business better in order to feather bed their current positions even though it meant long term doom
4. The Sandy Hook grifters
5. NY state's evil power hungry government that would rather rule over ruble than allow the prosperity of those they disagree with.

I don't blame Roundhill, the current owners, for relocating operations out of state in order to save the company for the 21st century. Remington is very lucky it didn't get the full Eddie Lampert Sears Robebuck treatment, since Cerberus for all of their debt loading of the company at least did invest in modernizing production to maintain a functional framework of a company.
 
Am I wrong in assuming the number of Democrats in large urban areas are outnumbering the Conservatives in the rural areas?

Based on recent election results it seems to me the urban areas are largely in favor of the Democratic candidates, look at Kemp, he won with 53% of the vote with the map showing a lot of red, but Abrams got almost 46% and I'd bet that was from the urban population centers shown in Blue.

Frankly the D's are out breeding us.

It is simple:

A. give poor people a bunch of "free sh*t".
B. do not encourage then to make more money, do not train them on useful skills, do not set up a system designed to get them out of poverty.
C. Lower the standard of education.

A+B+C = slave votes.

It is a very simple and effective equation. It works in every country.

Nice information, where u get all that from? As you know am looking 4 a better place to live and work,the above information are a big help to me.
 
F' EM. No sympathy!! They sold us out when under advice from lawyers settled with the parents of sandy hook!!!
That shows weaknesses. Something Massachusetts gun owners should no about oh so well .
We aren't in this together.
Will not comply is a neat T-shirt or bumper sticker that's all!!
Remington showed there is a weak spot!! Now the anti's are pushing to make more manufacturers liable for the actions of some shit stain who used there product to harm innocent people.
So cry me a friggan river.
The last shotty I purchased from them is shit and they deserve to go under.
Remington as you like to remember has been gone for a long time.

Its kinda like they took the Harley Davidson approach to marketing.
HD almost faded away because they focused so much on other than the product. Because HD felt it had a captive consumer and was turning out shit and a ton of clothing.
Remington was doing a pretty much "Hold my beer". The mag fed 870 ??? Wtf The Versa Max.
The camo dip rubs off after three seasons!!!! In the small and around the trigger area the white primer(?)
shows.
Best is you pay extra for swamp grass pattern.

So I certainly could care less. They did this to themselves.

I grew up on REMington. Most if not all the firearms I was gifted or bought was a Remington.
Chambered in a rem cal. Shot Remington ammo for everything.

Been done with them for along time.
Fair points..we’re screwed if the mainstays in the industry don’t hold the line.
