The Department of Defense has awarded the Remington Arms factory in Ilion a contract worth $80 million to produce more than 5,000 sniper rifles for the U.S. military, Rep. Richard Hanna said today.

The rifles will be manufactured over the course of 10 years at the Remington plant in Herkimer County, said Hanna, R-Barneveld.

The federal contract award comes on the same day of reports that Remington plans to spend $20 million upgrading the plant, which employs about 1,200 people.

“The award of this contract to Remington Defense further shows that they are the premier manufacturer of sniper rifles for our Armed Forces,” Hanna said in a statement today.
