Default Kimber coming to Troy, Al.

Kimber announced they would be building a 38 million dollar facility in Troy and hope to be up and running by early 2019. They expect to hire 366 workers. Don't know if they will be making just pistols, just rifles, or all of the above, but while they are tooling up, it would be nice if they included left-hand rifles in their products.

this has been in the works for about a year, my SIL is the mayor and he had a big hand in this. Very proud of him...

Good deal for AL. Where I live in GA is one of only 2 metro areas in the state to lose jobs last quarter.

I'm pretty sure that the folks from Toyota has selected Northern Alabama to build their new manufacturing plant as well.

They already had a plant in Huntsville, so it made sense to expand there. I think the current one builds engines and transmissions.

I think Remington built a plant up there as well.
