Kimber announced this week that it has finalized plans to expand manufacturing operations to Alabama.
The new facility will begin operations in 2019 in the city of Troy.
“Due to an unprecedented year-over-year growth in demand, every time the company has embarked upon a planned expansion, the newly created capacity is exhausted before the expansion is complete,” said James Cox, Kimber’s chief financial officer.
“As we continue to move into uncharted waters in regards to Kimber product demand, it was important to us to build a facility that will allow us to secure a significant new plateau of capacity,” he continued.
This new Troy facility will double Kimber’s manufacturing capabilities. The New York-based company also has a plant in Montana.
“We are pleased with the impressive track record that Alabama has with attracting and retaining world-class manufacturing companies,” said Leslie Edelman, Kimber’s president and chief executive officer.
“Growing our company intelligently depends significantly on being in the right manufacturing environment, and in Troy, we have a community dedicated to our long-term success,” Edelman continued. “Working with the Alabama Department of Commerce as well as Mayor Jason Reeves and his team has been a pleasurable and rewarding experience.”
Congrats to Kimber on their continued success! This is great news.!
