Remington Outdoor hits target for 84 jobs in Lonoke (AR)
LONOKE, Ark. — The Remington Outdoor Company, the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of firearms, ammunition and related products, announced growth plans at its ammunition plant in Lonoke, Arkansas. As part of the plans, the company plans to invest in the facility and create 84 new jobs.
News was shared recently in Las Vegas, where Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson met with Remington officials at the Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT Show). Hutchinson originally met with company officials in February 2015. This is the first time an Arkansas governor has attended the show.
“Remington is a world-class company that is making another significant investment in Arkansas,” Hutchinson said. “Arkansas’ reputation as a hub for firearms and ammunition manufacturing continues to grow thanks to Remington’s decision to expand again in the state. It was a pleasure to meet with Remington’s leadership at the SHOT Show and I look forward to continuing to work together.”
