Remington to Close Mayfield, Kentucky Plant


Remington Outdoor Company announced today it will be closing its Mayfield, Kentucky manufacturing plant.
The announcement signals the layoff of approximately 200 people from the site. Among the products Remington produces in Mayfield are Marlin firearms. Remington had only completed the move of Marlin from its Connecticut home in 2011.
According to the announcement, all operations will be rolled into Remington's main campus in Huntsville, Alabama. Relocation of the 20 year old facility include improvement of “logistical proximity and freight synergies,” “organizational synergy and focus with engineering, sales and marketing,” and a reduction of facility overhead and general organizational “streamlining.”
