Connecticut home for 175 years, as we look to future growth we have a responsibility to consider all options that ensure we remain competitive and meet the needs and expectations of our customers,” Dennis Veilleux, CEO of Colt’s Manufacturing, said in a written statement.
Colt is the largest gun manufacturer with about 700 employees.
Mossberg, which has about 400 employees, said it will be expanding in the future, but not in Connecticut.
Stag Arms, with about 200 employees, and PTR Industries, with about 45, are the smallest gun makers of the bunch and have been forthcoming about moving. However, PTR Industries is the only one to give a list of potential candidates, citing Texas, South Carolina and New Hampshire.
