Technically this is a rumor since we don’t have confirmation yet. But through a very good source, TTAG has learned that Remington notified all of Advanced Armament Corp’s employees today that their jobs have been terminated. Word is that all AAC production will be moved to Kentucky (Big Green has operations in both Hickory and Elizabethtown) after the end of the year. It doesn’t appear that anyone has been offered a position once the move is made, though an offer of a three week severance payment was proffered to employees who stick it out through December 31. We’re trying to reach someone at AAC for confirmation, but the plan seems to be to save cash by deep-sixing everyone left at AAC who has any knowledge of and expertise in their products. How’d that work out for Marlin?
UPDATE: Our man Leghorn just happened to by driving through Georgia today, so we re-tasked him to stop by AAC’s Lawrenceville headquarters . . .
where he was told that the company has no official statement at this time. He was also told that anyone who could tell him anything official is in “emergency meetings” all day. The scuttlebutt around the AAC office is that Remington may leave a small office for AAC’s top brass in Georgia, but that hasn’t been determined yet. Continue to watch this space.
