The Internet can at times be plagued with the “WWW Syndrome”—the Wild, Wild Web! Case in point, many of yesterday’s gun forums erroneously reported on and bashed Remington Outdoor Company’s (ROC) future plant-consolidation plans. editors, before jumping the gun, did their due diligence to find out what’s really happening at one of America’s finest companies. Here’s what you can take to the bank:

1) ROC’s SOLID STATEMENT: “Earlier today we announced the consolidation of multiple company plants into our Huntsville, Ala., facility,” said Remington Spokesman Teddy Novin. “This was a strategic business decision to concentrate our resources into fewer locations and improve manufacturing efficiency and quality. We are working hard to retain as many people from the affected facilities as possible.”

2) CONSOLIDATED LINES: BFI production and Remington 1911 production from Ilion, N.Y.

3) PLANTS MERGING TO NEW FACILITY: Lawrenceville, St. Cloud, Elizabethtown, West Jordan, Kalispell, Pineville and Kennesaw locations along with the Bushmaster and R1 lines will merge into Huntsville, Ala.

4) EMPLOYEE RETENTION: For the first time in Remington’s almost 200-year history, it will innovate, design and build in one place—the new state-of-the art facility in Huntsville, Ala. has learned that ROC management is enthusiastically reaching out to all of its dedicated employees, welcoming them and their families to make the move, grow and thrive with the organization in Huntsville—a place that’s rich with hunting and outdoor tradition, strong schools systems and low taxes.
