James L. Seward

February 16, 2014

ONEONTA, 02/16/14 – State Senator James L. Seward (R/C/I-Oneonta) today commented on reports that Remington Arms plans to announce an out-of-state expansion: 

“Remington Arms and the 1,300 dedicated workers who make up the 200 year old company’s workforce are the heart and soul of the Mohawk Valley. I have been assured that any out of state expansion will not affect Remington’s workforce in Ilion and the recent $20 million plant upgrade is proof of the company's commitment to New York. I look forward to partnering with Remington moving forward and continuing a robust dialogue with company officials to help meet their needs here at home and assist them and their workers manufacture a time-honored American-made product.”
