Remington Arms will be moving their Bushmaster and R1 production lines to Huntsville, Alabama according to a report by WKTV.
"Yesterday we announced the consolidation of multiple company plants (including the Bushmaster and R1 lines from Ilion) into our Huntsville, AL facility. 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," Teddy Novin, a company spokesman, told WKTV.
The Remington Arms plant will remain open, but moving the two production lines will affect about 80 jobs.
