Kimber Announces Manufacturing Expansion in Alabama

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- Kimber Mfg., Inc., a leading American firearms manufacturer, today announced that it has finalized plans to expand manufacturing operations to Alabama. Kimber will begin operations in early 2019, with a new design engineering and manufacturing facility in the City of Troy.

Once a small manufacturing company based in Yonkers, NY, Kimber has grown at a rapid pace over the past 21 years with locations in the New York metro area and Montana. The new Troy facility will double Kimber’s manufacturing capacity.

“Due to an unprecedented year-over-year growth in demand, every time the company has embarked upon a planned expansion, the newly created capacity is exhausted before the expansion is complete,” said James Cox, Kimber’s chief financial officer. “As we continue to move into uncharted waters in regards to Kimber product demand, it was important to us to build a facility that will allow us to secure a significant new plateau of capacity.”

“We are pleased with the impressive track record that Alabama has with attracting and retaining world-class manufacturing companies,” said Leslie Edelman, Kimber’s president and chief executive officer. “Growing our company intelligently depends significantly on being in the right manufacturing environment, and in Troy, we have a community dedicated to our long-term success. Working with the Alabama Department of Commerce as well as Mayor Jason Reeves and his team has been a pleasurable and rewarding experience.”

“We will be building a large, automated, state-of-the-art design engineering and manufacturing facility in Troy to support Kimber’s growth plan and strategy,” said Greg Grogan, Kimber’s chief operating officer. “Troy offers us expansion with a passionate workforce, affordable utility costs, a pro-business environment, experienced local training support, and long-term incentives from the State of Alabama and the City of Troy alike. This expansion, in conjunction with our existing manufacturing facilities, talented and experienced employees, and best-in-class products provides for exciting times here at Kimber.”

“This is a dream come true for the City of Troy and for me personally; a firearms manufacturing company with such a stellar brand as Kimber, creating jobs and capital investment for the community,” said Jason Reeves, Mayor of the City of Troy. “Troy has a strong manufacturing base and Kimber will certainly, positively add to that.”

    1. All gun manufactures and accessories manufacturing plants should move from the anti-gun states. Even farther they should refuse to do business with any state that doesn’t allow the citizens the same rights as the police departments…
      AKA Barrett, and Magpull. Why pay tax dollars to a state that fights what is a god given right…………..

    2. Well, not all the East Coast states!
      We here in Florida are very gun friendly have no state income tax and have a lot of gun companies here already
      We Even offer non-resident concealed carry permit for our visitors from out of state
      So leave the Democratic-controlled high tax gun hating states and come on down to the south

    3. I wish all firearm companies would move out of states that are anti second amendment friendly such as California and Illinois plus the east coast states.
      Send them a message that if their products aren’t allowable for the citizens to purchase then they don’t need the tax income off the companies products to push the anti second amendment language.

      1. Agreeing with you twice in one day? That has to be a record! You hit it exactly right. We need to applaud these companies and shun, publicly, companies that not only continue to stay in anti-gun States but particularly those that sell products to law enforcement in States where citizens cannot own those products. Ronnie Barrett had the right idea in refusing to sell or service in CA. We, as the consumers of 85% of firearms and related products, need to put real pressure on companies to stop selling to these bad actor States.
