The following is a press release from SIG SAUER
NEWINGTON, N.H. (July 10, 2014) — SIG SAUER® has instituted a series of work force adjustments to adapt to ever-changing market conditions and manufacturing efficiencies.
The firearms market has begun to cool from the record highs experienced over the past couple of years. Additional resources, including new employees, were brought on to help meet this spike in demand. Now that sales have began to return to normal, an adjustment in staff numbers is needed to maintain an efficient and cost-effective workflow . . .
Additionally, enhanced productivity and efficiency at the company’s new Newington, New Hampshire, manufacturing facility has made certain positions redundant or no longer needed. In order to maintain quality and control costs, an adjustment in staffing levels is required.
These difficult, but necessary, measures will allow SIG SAUER to continue to deliver innovative, high-quality firearms to its customers. As SIG SAUER continues to grow into new business categories, including ammunition and accessory products, these market-driven decisions will play a significant role.
