Bushmaster Closing Down Windham Maine Factory?
Rumors are abound inside the Firearms industry that Bushmaster is planning to announce another factory closure this afternoon. This would be the second factory shutting it’s doors in only a year. First was it’s Arizona plant that focused on carbon fiber, now many are speculating it will be the Windham Maine facility next. One can only assume they will move the bulk of its manufacturing to its Ilion, NY location. No word on how DPMS will be affected by this.
Another rumor floating about is that Bushmaster will close down several months after the 2011 shot show. I see this one as a long shot but who knows with their recent plant closures, layoffs, and setbacks.
None of this has been confirmed yet but GunBlog.com will keep you posted as the news trickles in.
