Remington Outdoor Co. - 120 Employees Laid Off.

Ilion, NY - The Wall Street Journal via ZeroHedge - 13 March 2017  ---  Remington Outdoor Co. has laid off more than 120 workers at an upstate New York factory in response to falling demand for firearms, dealing a blow to an upstate village of 8,000.

Since Donald Trump’s presidential victory eased concerns about stiffer gun laws, the small-arms industry has seen a drop in sales.  As a result, orders for Remington handguns have slowed, a company spokeswoman said Monday.  That is “a dynamic from which Remington is not immune”, she said of the industry challenges.

The March 8 layoffs are a hard hit for Ilion, N.Y., where Remington has operated a plant since the 19th century, according to Terry Leonard, mayor of the village located about 60 miles east of Syracuse.  “Should they ever just close down totally, it would be a total catastrophe for the entire area here.”

Don't worry Cuomo has promised to take up the Hil bam bam threat to our rights. He is gearing up for 2020 presidential election.

Friday, Remington let 34 upper level employees go.

Hopefully they got the ones who choose to introduce 50 new model variations each year instead of making 10 models well.    But I doubt it.

Probably the ones making New York wages.
 Hell if my company cut 34 Mgmt jobs the savings would be millions a year. And work flow would hardly increase for any one. But they wont dump family, friends and friends kids from do nothing jobs.

 On April 13, 2017, Remington pulled out of all sponsorship and support of anything connected to Highpower competition. 
A clarification followed, saying they were doing the same in all areas of competition. 

Their Highpower support was probably small compared to 3-gun or shotgun, but it wasn't chicken feed.   They had two sponsored teams that I know of, sponsored two regional matches, and helped with some of the instructional classes during the National Matches.

Between lawyering up to defend themselves from any and all Cuomo attacks and moving operations out of N.Y. Yeah $ is tight there.
