Remington Outdoor Company (ROC) will expand its operations to Huntsville, Ala., in 2015, the company announced today. The expansion, which will occupy the old Chrysler building, is expected to create more than 2,000 new jobs over the next 10 years.

“I am honored to welcome Remington to Alabama,” Governor Robert Bentley said. “The Alabama workforce, our business climate and our quality of life continue to make Alabama extremely attractive to companies.”

ROC Chairman and CEO George Kollitides said the additional capacity is essential to fulfill demand and introduce new products. “Having watched our company grow from 2,400 employees in 2008 to 4,200 employees by the end of 2013, a five-year, 75-percent increase, it is easy to see why we’re investing now,” he said.

In 2013, ROC made significant strides including its ammunition facility expansion, firearm capacity growth, winning a multitude of highly competitive military and law enforcement contracts, launching its 1816 lifestyle brand, and introducing a series of exciting new products such as Ultimate Defense Handgun Ammunition and the 783 bolt action rifle. Bolstered by record sales, the company chose to expand operations to Alabama.
