SIG SAUER is expanding its New Hampshire operations to the city of Rochester, NH. “[W]e are incredibly excited about completing the acquisition of a new facility in Rochester which gives SIG the much-needed flexibility to expand our manufacturing operations in the region and grow our workforce,” said Ron Cohen, president & CEO of SIG Sauer.
The company is relocating its Dover operation and expand overall New Hampshire operations through the acquisition of a multi-building campus in Rochester. It is located within Crossroads Industrial Park, has up to 2210,000 square feet of space and situated on more than 35 acres. The expansion is spurred a requirement for additional manufacturing space due to the company’s continued market growth.
“The expansion of SIG Sauer’s New Hampshire operation is exciting and welcome news as our economy continues to grow,” said Governor Chris Sununu. “We pride ourselves on working hand-in-hand with our partners in the private sector to expand economic opportunity for working families across the Granite State—and this partnership between the State of New Hampshire, City of Rochester, and SIG Sauer does just that.”
“We’re thrilled to welcome SIG Sauer to Rochester,” added Caroline McCarley, Mayor of Rochester. “The new location will provide great job opportunities to our state’s workforce and offer advanced manufacturing capabilities to the region. I also admire their commitment to work with our high school students in the Richard W. Creteau Regional Technology Center to gain skills that can be transferred into a wide variety of career paths.”
The expansion of operations in New Hampshire is a result of a collaboration with the city of Rochester and the state of New Hampshire, including the New Hampshire Business Finance Authority (BFA).
“This partnership with SIG Sauer provides an exciting opportunity for the City of Rochester and will bring in 300 new, high-quality jobs to the city,” said James Key-Wallace, executive director of the BFA. “We were pleased to work closely with the state of New Hampshire and the city of Rochester to make this happen. Our collaborative approach shows New Hampshire is committed to growing our businesses here in the state and is always looking at creative opportunities. We want Granite State companies to know they can count on us for innovative solutions when they are ready to expand their operations.”
