Smith & Wesson Consolidates New Hampshire Facility, Creates 225 Springfield, Massachusetts, Jobs
The company will bring its production of Thompson/Center Arms hunting rifles to Springfield. The headquarters facility already has about 900 employees. Smith & Wesson does not anticipate significant renovations for the additional workers.
In 2007, Smith & Wesson purchased Thompson/Center Arms, but had to lay off more than 60 workers last year due to a drop in sales.
The Springfield Mayor's Office and City Council are working on incentives towards the project.
