ILION, N.Y. – State Sen. James Seward, R-51, says he spoke with the new owners of the Remington Arms plant in Ilion, and they say at least 200 employees will be called back to work soon.

More than 600 workers at the Ilion facility were placed on furlough Sept. 24.

Roundhill Group, the company that will purchase the Ilion facility, says they plan to call back the initial group of workers within a month or two to continue manufacturing non-Marlin firearms.

“The company does not have major real estate holdings elsewhere, and the owners look forward to continuing to operate the historic Ilion plant,” said Seward. “Within 30 to 60 days an initial recall of 200 workers is expected, and I would anticipate additional growth shortly thereafter.”

According to several reports, a business called Sturm, Ruger & Company purchased the Remington Marlin line, and will move manufacturing to its existing facilities. The Herkimer County Industrial Development Agency says 200 – 250 employees worked on Remington’s Marlin line in Ilion.

Remington Arms filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in July, for the second time in as many years.

After a bankruptcy hearing Tuesday, a judge approved selling Remington in parts to seven different companies, but it is not yet clear when the sale will be final.
