ILION, N.Y. – Remington Arms is offering 1 million square feet of production space to the government for use in the fight against coronavirus.

Following the state mandate to send non-essential workers home last week, Remington Arms shut down production at its Ilion facility.

Remington Arms CEO Ken D’Arcy said in a video posted to Facebook Monday, “Remington is offering President Trump and New York Gov. Cuomo full support to utilize our facility during this crisis.”

Cuomo said the state may need to hospitalize upwards of 140,000 patients in less than a month, and is need of 30,000 additional ventilators.

“It would be an honor for our company to donate space for the manufacture of mission critical products, such as ventilators, hospital beds or anything else deemed necessary,” said D’Arcy.
