Remington Offers Up Facility Amid Shutdown

The Remington space could be used to fill shortfalls in ventilators, masks, or even hospital beds.

 

Remington Arms has offered nearly one million square feet of manufacturing space in New York to make medical supplies.

According to a report from the Ithaca Journal, CEO Ken D'Arcy notified President Donald Trump and Governor Andrew Cuomo that the space is unused and available.

The company shut down until April 30th after Governor Cuomo ordered nonessential workers to stay home.

As of Tuesday, New York state was still in need of about 30,000 ventilators. The Remington space could be used to fill shortfalls in ventilators, masks, or even hospital beds.

In the letter, D'Arcy added that ventilators are needed to win a new kind of war. He said Remington is ready to "enlist in wartime production.”
