Pearl River, NY –-(Ammoland.com)- Kahr Firearms Group is engaged in discussions with a development group representing Blooming Grove Township of Pike County Pennsylvania, to open a new manufacturing site and relocate the Kahr corporate office from New York to Pennsylvania.

Kahr’s corporate offices are currently located in Rockland County in Pearl River, New York.

Kahr’s plans include the purchase of 620 acres of commercial real estate from the Pike County Industrial Park Development Group/Business Development Corporation. The first step in the multi-phased plan will begin with site preparation and office construction as early as late this year. This will be followed by the relocation of company corporate offices and the research and development department. In the second phase, manufacturing operations will be expanded to the Pike County location to meet the increasing demand for its Kahr Arms, Thompson, Auto-Ordnance, and Magnum Research product lines.

The Kahr Group of manufacturing plants, operating at full capacity, will continue production in their current locations in Worcester, MA and Pillager, MN.

“We are grateful for the warm welcome and the business opportunity extended by the Pike County Industrial Park Development Group/Business Development Corporation to expand our company and relocate its headquarters office,” stated VP of Sales and Marketing, Frank Harris.

“The Pennsylvania group has demonstrated tremendous support of our operations and Kahr looks to move forward with the project without delay. It’s good for our business and also for other businesses in the area as we build a long-term mutually beneficial relationship with the community. We anticipate generating significant numbers of revenue and jobs for the local Northeastern Pennsylvania economy with the construction of facilities, expansion of manufacturing, and need for local vendors.”

New York’s loss, the result of the stupidity of the governor and state legislature, will be PA’s gain, or so it appears. Re the loss of employment and business opportunities in New York, one wonders as to what excuse or explaination the powers that be might have to offer, that is assuming that they recognize the harm their antics have done, and are willing and capable of responding to the all to legitimate questions that might possibly be posed by the citizenry of New York, a group that the powers that be supposedly serve.

Great to see Kahr leave NY state, as a Kahr owner, would like to see them move south of the Red River into Texas … despite the hot weather, they would be welcomed here.


Kahr also needs to abandon ALL operations in MA!

Hats off to Kahr for leaving behind a Chaotic, Anal Politics, and over taxed state for a great state like Pennsylvania.
