Remington Offers Manufacturing Space for COVID-19 Products

Remington Arms has offered President Trump and Governor Cuomo one million square feet of free manufacturing space at its Ilion, NY, plant to produce ventilators, surgical masks, hospital beds or other essential coronavirus treatment needs.

Below are the letters sent to President Trump and Governor Cuomo from the CEO of Remington Arms:


Dear President Trump:

Firstly, on behalf of Remington Arms Company, I would like to thank you for your national leadership in fighting the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak across America. 


The Remington plant in Ilion, New York, has been in operation for more than 200 years and prior to the recent executive order by Governor Andrew Cuomo closing non-essential businesses in the state, we were employing approximately 800 men and women, most of whom are members of the United Mine Workers. 


The Remington plant in Ilion now has approximately one million square feet of unused and available manufacturing space. We would be honored to donate our facility to the production of ventilators, surgical masks, hospital beds or any other products mission-critical to the war on coronavirus. These products as you know are essential to winning this new kind of war and Remington stands ready to enlist in wartime production. 

Remington products have served in every major U.S. Military conflict since 1816. We are prepared for duty yet again and would be honored to work with you and Governor Cuomo to fight the war against the coronavirus.

Thank you very much.

Sincerely,
Ken D’Arcy
Chief Executive Officer
Remington Arms Company
