ILION, NY - Some remaining Remington Arms employees are being furloughed Friday, but the new owner wasn't sure how many, as it's being handled by the estate of the former company.

Richmond Italia, a partner with the Roundhill Group, says an inspector has visited Remington's Ilion plant, but no federal firearms license has been issued yet. Italia says the process is moving along, although he says it's unlikely they'll have the license before the end of the year.

Italia says Roundhill can't commit to a starting date until they have their license in hand, but they do plan on approaching employees as early as next week with job offers with the new company.

Nearly 600 employees have been laid off after Roundhill bought the Ilion Remington facility in September. Italia has said Roundhill hopes to bring back more than 200 to staff the new version of Remington.
