TROY, Alabama — Less than three years after selecting a site in Troy for a firearms manufacturing plant, Kimber Mfg Inc. announced plans to move its corporate headquarters to the Alabama city.
Kimber also said it plans to hire aggressively in all departments as it completes its new facility in Pike County.
The company’s new headquarters is situated on 80-plus acres off Industrial Boulevard in Troy. Its Alabama facility spans more than 225,000 square feet and is home to industry-leading design engineering, product management and manufacturing capabilities.
After an exhaustive search, Kimber said Troy was chosen as its new corporate home for several reasons including the site’s proximity to top-tier engineering schools as well as gun- and business-friendly support from the City of Troy and the State of Alabama.
