Remington Arms Co. Chairman and CEO George Kollitides said today that Alabama's state motto — "We Dare Defend Our Rights" — "says it all," as he confirmed that the company will bring 2,000 jobs to Huntsville, Ala.
According to syracuse.com's sister website AL.com, Kollitides said at a press conference in Huntsville that selecting a site for the new plant was not easy.
"We undertook a very rigorous process," he said, citing workforce, quality of life, economic climate, the building that will house the plant — and Alabama's support for gun rights. He praised the existing Remington workforce but said it cannot keep up with demand for the company's products.
Remington employs more than 1,300 people in the Herkimer County village of Ilion in Upstate New York, where it has been making firearms since 1816. But the company has made it known its displeasure at New York's Safe Act, which restricts the sale, though not the manufacture, of assault weapons in New York.
The law was passed after Adam Lanza used a semi-automatic rifle with a 30-round magazine to massacre 20 first-graders and six adults at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012. The president of the union representing 1,180 of the more than 1,300 Remington workers in Ilion told syracuse.com that he believed the company's decision to expand in Alabama, rather than New York, was made in response to the Safe Act.
Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley said at the press conference in Huntsville that 24 states made proposals to Remington for the new plant. He also cited Alabama's "respect for gun rights" as among the reasons the company chose Huntsville, according to AL.com's report.
Remington operations are to begin at a former Chrysler plant in Huntsville within 18 months. Kollitides said the 2,000 jobs would come over the next decade.
Bentley said Alabama is a perfect fit for the gun manufacturer because of the state's commitment to business and economic development, as well as its conservative politics and unwavering support for the right to bear arms.
Director of the Alabama Department of Commerce Greg Canfield said the state began the process of trying to lure a major company to the state nearly a year ago and proposed nine sites to Remington in August.

I was born and raised in the Mohawk Valley. Remington Arms has been a huge economic driver in the area while others have abandoned "The Valley" for warmer climates. The area sure could use 2000 well paying manufacturing jobs. -- CTSCA.org Editor.

The shooter was Russell “Russ” Tagliareni of Washington Township, New Jersey, and what he did was win the Delaware River Classic FITASC event with a perfect 100×100 — not just his first perfect FITASC score, but the first registered in a U.S. shoot since NSCA has been keeping records. The Delaware River Classic was last September at M&M Hunting Preserve & Sporting Clays.
“I surprised myself,” he admitted, calling his record-setting win “pretty exciting” in his understated manner. “There were so many good shooters there, and Anthony [Matarese, Jr.] sets challenging targets.”
His previous best FITASC finish was a 96×100, earning a win at the Masters Cup at M&M in 2008 over some of the world’s best FITASC shooters.
In describing M&M’s FITASC targets, he said, “Anthony’s targets are challenging but fair. He always gives shooters the best opportunity to see targets. Even if they are very difficult to hit, shooters are able to get a good look at them.”
Tagliareni has been shooting since the mid-1980s and took up sporting clays in about 2003. It is his background that likely prepared him best for the challenges of FITASC; he began as an International Skeet shooter, winning several state championships and taking gold in the New York State Olympics. But it became increasingly difficult for him to continue in International Skeet, as fewer clubs were throwing those targets. So he looked into sporting clays a decade ago and found a new hobby.
The Master Class shooter shot his first year as a Veteran in 2013 and had his best year to date, even aside from his perfect FITASC score. Most of his shoots were in the Northeast, but even when he’s shooting within his region, he looks for larger shoots. “I’m a working class person, so I don’t get the chance to travel as much as some do,” he said. “I like to shoot larger tournaments alongside the pros. It challenges me to push myself, and I enjoy the exciting atmosphere and vendors that come with a larger shoot.”
Tagliareni says he is mostly self-taught but had a few lessons with Anthony Matarese, Jr. a few years ago when he “hit a wall.”
“Anthony helped me see the game in a different way,” he said. “We worked on my weaknesses, and he helped me with subtleties that people can take for granted. He instilled in me the importance of visual acuity, confidence, practice, and idiosyncrasies. It opened new doors for me.”
He said he also learned the importance of one or two targets in a tournament. “There are so many talented shooters now, the results usually come down to one or two targets. It’s the difference between being on the podium and watching from the sidelines.”
Now he does more focused practices. “I focus on quality versus quantity, addressing weaknesses and working toward perfecting one skill or target,” he explained. “Instead of shooting the course, I pick one or two targets to focus on.” He now passes along what he has learned by teaching local shooters.
Tagliareni also credits another person for helping him achieve what he has in shooting — his wife Mary, whom he wished to thank. “She has supported me and my shooting over the past 25+ years, helping make my success possible.”
In 2014, Tagliareni again plans to shoot some of the major tournaments in his region, but he also hopes to shoot in the National Championship for the first time since 2010. You can bet his FITASC competitors will know he’s there.
