Kimber Moves South

In other gun news

Kimber Manufacturing is moving its corporate headquarters to Troy and will “aggressively hire” in all departments.

The firearms manufacturer last week announced it is moving to a new facility it built last year on 80 acres with more than 225,000 square feet of space, with design engineering, product management and manufacturing space.

The company, formerly based in Yonkers, N.Y., pledged two years ago to open a $38 million production facility in Troy, creating 366 jobs over the next five years, which Gov. Kay Ivey announced in her 2018 State of the State address.

In an announcement, the company said Troy was chosen for, among several reasons, its proximity to engineering schools as well as pro-gun, pro-business support from the city of Troy and Alabama.

    I think Kimber is as successful as it is due to Hollywood… kinda like Glock.  If it weren’t for the John Wick series, Kimber would not be very recognizable to the masses.
