Para Ordnance moving HQ stateside

    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.
