Canadian pistol manufacturer Para Ordnance are moving their headquarters and manufacturing to Charlotte NC. Charlotte Business Journal reports:
The company leased a Pineville facility and estimates 35 to 40 jobs will be filled, mostly in manufacturing and machining.
Para Chief Executive Thanos Polyzos says the company wanted to establish a U.S. headquarters to be eligible for more military and law-enforcement contracts.
How much of its manufacturing, if any, will remain in Canada is not clear.
UPDATE: JR @ Keyboard and a .45 has just point out that this also allows them to get round any import restrictions, now or in the future.
