The Remington factory in Ilion, New York
Good news for Remington firearms. The company has been making firearms for over two centuries and will resume production on March 1st. Roundhill Group has secured a state weapons license and plans to resume production next month at its Illion, New York facility.
The local CBS television station WKTV has the news.
The Roundhill group, which bought Remington in Ilion last year, confirmed with NEWSChannel 2 that they received the license last week.
The factory in Ilion is scheduled to open for maintenance on February 16. You plan to start production on March 1st.
Roundhill Group’s partner Richmond Italia said the company plans to bring back 200 employees by day one of production.
Italia says the company is working with the state to increase jobs at the Ilion plant.
It seems that the new owners believe they can start making firearms in one of the most gun-free states in America.

The Roundhill Group’s Federal Firearm License (FFL) has been approved, according to a report from Utica, NY, CBS-TV subsidiary WKTV. The approval paves the way for the company to resume manufacturing weapons under its RemArms label from the famous Ilion, NY factory it purchased during Remington Outdoor’s bankruptcy last fall. The company now owns the rights to manufacture all Remington firearms and holds the patents, with the exception of Marlin’s assets, which went to the highest bidder, Ruger.
Roundhill partner Richmond Italia told the broadcaster that production would resume on March 1st, with 200 employees going back to work. Before the reopening, routine maintenance and preparation will begin on February 16.
The schedule mirrors Italia’s prediction late last year that some workers would start on February 15th.
Despite ongoing discussions, Italia told Times Telegram that people will be returning to work in March because “I understand that people need jobs to survive … I’ve been there and I understand. We are ready to risk reopening the plant, even during the negotiations. “
A Remington spokesman said a Model 870 shotgun will be the first firearm to roll off the line when the Ilion plant reopens.
Remington’s new owners couldn’t have picked a better time to get back into firearms production. The store shelves remain deeply exhausted and the unprecedented shopping spree under President BidenHarris shows no sign of cooling.
