Georgia Gov. Brian P. Kemp has announced that Remington Firearms will locate its global headquarters and open a new advanced manufacturing operation in LaGrange, Ga. The new headquarters will also house an innovative research and development center. Remington Firearms will invest $100 million and create 856 jobs over a five-year period in the Troup County, Ga., area.

Founded in 1816, Remington Firearms is one of the largest domestic producers shotguns and rifles. Several of the company’s strategic products are to be manufactured in Georgia.

Here is what Gov. Kemp had to say about Big Green's big move.

"Georgia's firearms industry is responsible for thousands of jobs and millions of dollars of investment in our communities. I am a proud owner of some of Remington's first-class product, and now, I am excited to welcome them to their new home in the Peach State. As yet another big manufacturing win for our state, I look forward to seeing the oldest firearms manufacturer in America thrive in Georgia's pro-business environment."

Remington Firearms CEO, Ken D’Arcy, expressed his excitement about the move to Georgia, a state known for its friendly climate with the firearms industry.

"Between the support we’ve received from the state and from Scott Malone and Kelley Bush of the City of LaGrange Economic Development Authority, we cannot wait to expand our company in Georgia. Everyone involved in this process has shown how important business is to the state and how welcoming they are to all business, including the firearms industry."

In addition, the Mayor of LaGrange, Ga., Jim Thornton, said that he is "thrilled to welcome Remington Firearms to the growing list of manufacturers who call LaGrange home."

The new Remington Firearms operation in LaGrange, Ga., will be hiring for positions in production, operations, engineering and management, as well as human resources, finance and administration in Remington’s executive offices. Learn more at remarms.com.
