Good for them, FUAC.  Sorry for the people left behind.


TROY, AL, October 26, 2020 — Kimber Mfg., is pleased to name Troy, Alabama, as its official corporate headquarters and to announce it is hiring aggressively in all departments. After a carefully planned shift of leadership, R&D and manufacturing resources, Kimber has made substantial progress in the transition to its new, state-of-the-art headquarters in Troy, Alabama. The final step in completing this new facility is adding staff across all departments.

Kimber’s new headquarters is situated on 80+ acres with more than 225,000 square-feet of space and is now home to industry-leading design engineering, product management and manufacturing capabilities. After an exhaustive search, Troy was chosen for a multitude of reasons including its proximity to top-tier engineering schools as well as gun- and business-friendly support from the city of Troy and the great state of Alabama.

Kimber’s Alabama expansion is well ahead of schedule, having filled hundreds of its planned Troy-based positions. Kimber is seeking qualified applicants across multiple positions and business areas including CNC technicians, machinists, quality control specialists, lean technicians, design engineers, compliance analysts, customer service representatives, materials planners, maintenance technicians, finishing operators, and assembly technicians.

“Kimber is a great place to work, especially if you love firearms,” said Pedi Gega, director of assembly and product finishing. “We have two indoor gun ranges, one outdoor range, a state-of-the-art design and prototype fabrication center, and a dynamic team of professionals who pride themselves in producing firearms with unmatched attention to detail, design and performance. Every Kimber firearm is created with a unique blend of advanced precision technology and authentic human craftsmanship.”

Interested applicants are encouraged to apply at https://www.kimberamerica.com/careers.

It's about damn time, there needs to be a mass exodus. I always thought it looked stupid to have the name "Yonkers" on such a fine pistol.

I hope they can get back some market share.  I had one of their Oregon made 1911s that was amazing.

I hope they have better time finding employees than Rem... The guys I talked to were not impressed w/ the work ethic in the South. People were calling in to go fishing... FNY & FUAC!

I kinda feel like this is the problem with all big corporate. The ones that keep the factory running are in very little consideration at any time in the planning. Everyone else is important though and we need to tailor everything to them. Those floor workers are replaceable and easily found, but we can't find any good workers.

Good luck, Last I heard they pissed off enough people in town and the surrounding area that no-one wants to work there. Upper management doesn't care about the hourly workers. They can go flip burgers somewhere else is a common derogatory statement. I see their fate as similar to Remington in the next year or so due to poor management.

All I know is I can't adjust the fucking rear sight on my K6S.  And yes, it is an "adjustable rear sight" but the fucking thing won't budge.
