As the press release notes, early last year Kahr announced they would be moving their headquarters from New York to the gun-friendly state of Pennsylvania. The ground-breaking ceremony represents the first step in the relocation process. The company has purchased 620 acres of commercial real estate from the Pike County Industrial Park Development Group. Corporate offices and the R&D department will be the first to move. After that, they’ll expand manufacturing operations to the Pike County location.
“We are just a few months into the initial construction phase of our new corporate headquarters, and already the support we are receiving from the Pike County Industrial Park Development Group, the local community, and even Governor Corbett has been extremely welcoming,” said Frank Harris, Kahr VP of Marketing and Sales. “It clearly demonstrates how eager the state of Pennsylvania is to bring job opportunities to the citizens of the state, while also supporting our right to manufacture firearms.”
Kahr said in the press release that moving to Pennsylvania will result in a more “cohesive relationship” between their company and the state than what they previously experienced in New York. Over the next few years, they will reach to the local community in Pike County with employment opportunities.
