Now that the American economy is booming once again, thanks in no small part to the President’s business savvy, a number of U.S. businesses are living the high life.
With Donald Trump rising to power at the tail end of 2016, and with a year now under his belt, our country has been undergoing a serious transformation. Not only is the American conservative awakening dominating the cultural shifts of our great nation, but employing one of the most prominent businessmen in American history as Commander in Chief has done wonders for consumer confidence and the American economy as well.
This “Trump Effect” has seen a number of previously absent corporations return operations to America, and it has fueled the growth of a great many Made in America companies. (Just check out the targeted advertising that you see on Facebook these days…everything looks to be “made in the USA”).
That same boom has now affected Kimber Manufacturing, an arms company who already employed over 400 employees in 2011. Kimber will look to increase that number in the very near future as well, announcing plans for a third manufacturing facility in the city of Troy, in the great state of Alabama.
“The new design, engineering and manufacturing facility in Troy will expand Kimber’sfootprint to three states, including its home base in New York and a plant in Montana.
“’This is a dream come true for the City of Troy and for me personally,’ said Troy Mayor Jason Reeves. ‘A firearms manufacturing company with such a stellar brand as Kimber, creating jobs and capital investment for the community. Troy has a strong manufacturing base and Kimber will certainly, positively add to that.’
“Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey said the $38 million plant will create more than 350 jobs over the next five years.
“’With talented Alabamians already manufacturing a wide range of high-quality products that are in demand around the globe, the state can offer Kimber an ideal business environment and a skilled workforce for its expansion project,’ she said. ‘Kimber’s investment in Troy will create a significant number of high-paying design engineering and manufacturing jobs, and we are committed to helping the company find long-lasting success in Alabama.'”
Not only will Kimber’s new facility bring jobs to the area, but it will also bring an economic boom to the rapidly growing state as well.
It looks like the fine folks of The Yellowhammer State have two things to celebrate this week.
