31. $700K is not too bad - compared to NY & other states...

"... $5.5 million that went to Remington Arms in the last five years. The incentives to Remington in New York are among $19.9 million given by nine states to makers of assault weapons in the last decade and were revealed in a list compiled by the Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting.

The $5.5 million that went to Remington and its parent company, Freedom Group, led to the consolidation of manufacturing plants in Massachusetts and Connecticut to Ilion, N.Y., where Remington has manufactured firearms for nearly 200 years.

They were down to close to 600 jobs and now they’ve more than doubled that,” says Sen. Jim Seward, Ilion's representative in the legislature. “These are good manufacturing jobs and obviously we want them to stay.”"

Good for Cuomo et. al. to keep them there then - as of 2013. (they have since moved manufacturing to Alabama, "due to gun laws".


"Alabama gun plant
Remington Outdoor has exceeded its hiring and wage milestones at its new advanced manufacturing and research and development center in Huntsville.

A report from the Chamber of Commerce of Huntsville/Madison County shows the firearm maker had 324 employees as of Aug. 31 with an average hourly wage nearly $10 higher than stated in the development agreement between the company, City of Huntsville and state. Remington was required to create at least 280 full-time positions by the close of the second project year ending Feb. 28.

Remington, which is still hiring production team members through AIDT, received an extensive incentive package from the city, local counties and state to launch the $110 million plant on 100 Electronics Boulevard in Huntsville.
The company plans to rapidly ramp up hiring through the next decade:

680 employees by the end of 2016
1,018 employees by 2017
1,258 employees by 2018
1,498 employees by 2019
1,698 employees by 2020
1,868 employees by 2021"
