RemArms Ilion Operation to Close March 2024
"I am writing to inform you that RemArms, LLC has decided to close its entire operation at 14 Hoefler Avenue, NY 13357," the memo obtained by NEWSChannel 2 stated.
"The Company expects that operations at the Ilion Facility will conclude on or about March 4, 2024," the memo stated.
Around 250-300 employees work at the facility
New York State Senator Joseph Griffo (R-C-Rome), Assemblyman Brian Miller (R-C-New Hartford) and Assemblyman Robert Smullen (R-C-Meco) released a statement regarding the closure of the Ilion plant.
State Senator Mark Walczyk released the following statement:
“Albany Democrats and their failed policies are directly responsible for the closure of this facility and the unemployment of roughly 250-300 New Yorkers. Governors Cuomo and Hochul signed laws such as S7196 -2021, the Gun Industry Liability Law, and the costly effects of the gas ban, that have pushed another good business out of New York State. I’ve opposed these shameful policies from the beginning and it's disheartening to see the Mohawk Valley suffer the consequences of the least friendly business climate in the nation. My heart goes out to the families affected by this closure as the announcement hits just before the holidays. My office remains ready to assist those impacted in any way.”
