In an effort to become more organizationally focused and competitive, Remington Outdoor Company (ROC) has announced plans to close its Mayfield, Ky., firearms operations, which has been in operation for nearly 20 years. Approximately 200 employees will be affected. The operation will be consolidated into its Huntsville, Ala., Operation—about 250 miles away—with actual plant closure and transition to Huntsville scheduled to take several months. The strategic decision to consolidate was centered on three competitively oriented areas:

- Logistical proximity and freight synergies
- Organizational synergy and focus with engineering, sales and marketing
- Facility overhead leverage and streamlining

Employees will be offered severance pay and outplacement services.

ROC, headquartered in Madison, N.C., designs products for the hunting, shooting, self-defense, military, and law enforcement markets. Founded in 1816, it is the nation's oldest gun maker and one of the largest domestic producers of firearms and ammunition. ROC employs over 3,500 people and distributes its products throughout the U.S. and over 55 countries. ROC includes globally recognized brands such as Remington, Remington 1816, Bushmaster, DPMS, Marlin, H&R, Advanced Armament Corp., Dakota, Nesika, Storm Lake and Barnes Bullets.
