Christmas Comes Early In Ilion, New York: Remington Outdoor Company Avoids A Political Fire Sale

Christmas Comes Early In Ilion, New York: Remington Outdoor Company Avoids A Political Fire Sale – Christmas has come early in Ilion, New York, site of America’s oldest factory still making its original product—guns. George Kollitides, chairman and CEO of Remington Outdoor Company, Inc., (ROC), a group formerly known as Freedom Group, Inc., sent his employees a memo to let them know they’re buying out unhappy stockholders instead of selling ROC under political duress. No more making guns under the threat of an imminent sale, no more wondering what might happen any moment to this little town living around the beating brick heart of a gun factory since 1816.
