Default Gunmaker Remington looking at Nashville for expansion, relocation

FYI!

Interesting!

More information at the link

http://www.tennessean.com/article/20130819/BUSINESS/308190065/Gunmaker-Remington-looking-Nashville-expansion-relocation?nclick_check=1

One of the nation’s largest gun manufacturers, Remington Arms, has looked at sites around Nashville for a potential corporate relocation or expansion that would likely include hundreds of manufacturing jobs.

The Madison, N.C.-based company, which is part of the nation’s largest firearms company and has its largest plant in Ilion, N.Y, has scouted sites near Nashville’s airport, Lebanon and in Clarksville, Tenn.

This was sad news but not unexpected. The current plant in Ilion has been part of our area heading towards 200 years. Andy of Albany is chasing them out with laws that make the products they create illegal in this state unless your a LEO, retired LEO or Military. Chuckie Screwmore gave them a couple contracts to try to keep them here, thats just not gonna be good enough chuck. say goodby to another 600 good paying jobs...

They have invested heavily in their Mayfield, KY facility, where the new 783 is being manufactured. They have a lot of chips down on the 783

Moving to gun-friendly, low-cost (and non union) areas makes sense on every possible level. And it's good for attracting pro-2a customers as well. New York is going nowhere except more liberal (ie: the toilet) and Remington knows this. Look for improved quality point forward

If everyone is working for low wages who is going to buy Remingtons products? Ruger moved to NC because our current right to work, anti union laws killed the employees union. In NC unions can not collect dues by withholding dues from payroll checks. The law bankrupts unions. In turn, every company from Walmart to Mcdonalds has started paying minimum wage. Just five years ago these companies started employees at $10 per hour.

We are quickly turning into a country of haves and have nots. At some point the economy is going to contract so much that Walmart and Starbucks will struggle. No one will have any extra money. Just a a small percentage of the haves will be able to spend money. All the nice stuff that is on the market today will be hard to find when less than 20% of the population has any money to spend.

Take a good look at Detroit. That is the future of America unless wages allow for a middle class.

Go ahead and tell me the last time 'union' meant 'quality' in American manufacturing. Detroit got f!d up because of years of liberal 'lets make everything fair', tax and spend policies as well as corruption. And unions.

You want to make a higher wage in this country, get an in-demand skill or education in a growing field. Expecting to make $50 grand a year for watching a computer-run lathe or other semi skilled labor is not realistic

The Florida panhandle has airports, railroads, and waterways.
We also have that "redneck engineering" going on strong.

There may be some room for them here.

Don't blame them. I am hoping that we can attract more firearm industries to very gun friendly Kentucky.

Dont give up on NY yet, the fight is on here and we will win. Hopefully in time to save Remington but we will win even if Remington leaves.
