Kimber Manufacturing is moving its corporate headquarters to Troy and will aggressively hire in all departments.
The firearms manufacturer last week announced it is moving to a new facility it built last year on 80 acres with more than 225,000 square feet of space, with design engineering, product management and manufacturing space.
The company, formerly based in Yonkers, N.Y., pledged two years ago to open a $38 million production facility in Troy, creating 366 jobs over the next five years, which Gov. Kay Ivey announced in her 2018 State of the State address.
In an announcement, the company said Troy was chosen for, among several reasons, its proximity to engineering schools as well as pro-gun, pro-business support from the city of Troy and Alabama.
The company said it is seeking applicants across several categories, including CNC technicians, machinists, quality control specialists, lean technicians, design engineers, compliance analysts, customer service representatives, materials planners, maintenance technicians, finishing operators, and assembly technicians.
Interested applicants may apply here.
Pedi Gega, director of assembly and product finishing, said the campus has two indoor gun ranges, one outdoor range, and a design and prototype fabrication center.
Every Kimber firearm is created with a unique blend of advanced precision technology and authentic human craftsmanship, Gega said.

Good! Let NY feel what they voted for.
TI guess this is Troy AL and not Toy NY ???
It’s in the headline.
Sad to say, it seems the way Georgia is going these days, maybe another move in the future? But kudos for leaving new york.
Guess thats Troy, AL, and not Troy, NY.
I am surprised they lasted this long.
Ironically, it the citizens of Yonkers who really need the guns—but I guess they need to figure that out the hard way...
I hope they have a “moving sale”!
Maybe that’ll improve their quality which sucks.
They are leaving Yonkers. :(
Hiring lean technicians? They move to Alabama and immediately are prejudiced against fat technicians. Here come the lawsuits!
They certainly charge for it!
Employees liberated from both NYS and Yonkers income taxes.
Cuomo is the best business development person the other 49 states could have.
Very confusing. There is a Troy NY. It is right outside of the state capital in Albany (Albany NY that is. Still more confusion)
It’s a poorly written headline, and yes, I thought it was Troy NY too.
