    SIG Sauer have announced that they will be expanding their operations to another New Hampshire site. The new location offers over 200,000 sq/ft of space at the Crossroads Industrial Park in Rochester. SIG Sauer will be moving their Dover, New Hampshire operations to the new site. The new location is just over 20 minutes away from SIG Sauer’s headquarters at Pease International Tradeport in Newington, New Hampshire.

    Here’s SIG Sauer’s announcement in full:

    SIG SAUER, Inc., a leading New Hampshire manufacturer, is pleased to announce an expansion of its New Hampshire operations to the city of Rochester, New Hampshire.

    Ron Cohen, President & CEO, SIG SAUER, Inc. began, “we are incredibly excited about completing the acquisition of a new facility in Rochester which gives SIG the much-needed flexibility to expand our manufacturing operations in the region and grow our workforce.”

    SIG SAUER is poised to acquire a multi-building campus in Rochester, to relocate its Dover operation and expand overall New Hampshire operations, located within Crossroads Industrial Park situated on 35+ acres with up to 210,000 sq./ft. of space. This expansion is spurred by the need for additional manufacturing space and SIG SAUER’s continued market growth.

    “The expansion of SIG SAUER’s New Hampshire operation is exciting and welcome news as our economy continues to grow,” said Governor Chris Sununu. “We pride ourselves on working hand-in-hand with our partners in the private sector to expand economic opportunity for working families across the Granite State – and this partnership between the State of New Hampshire, City of Rochester, and SIG SAUER does just that.”

    “We’re thrilled to welcome SIG SAUER to Rochester. The new location will provide great job opportunities to our state’s workforce and offer advanced manufacturing capabilities to the region,” added Mayor Caroline McCarley, City of Rochester, NH. “I also admire their commitment to work with our high school students in the Richard W. Creteau Regional Technology Center to gain skills that can be transferred into a wide variety of career paths.”

    The expansion of SIG SAUER operations in New Hampshire is a result of a collaboration with the city of Rochester and the state of New Hampshire, including the New Hampshire Business Finance Authority.

    “This partnership with SIG SAUER provides an exciting opportunity for the City of Rochester and will bring in 300 new, high-quality jobs to the city,” said James Key-Wallace, executive director of the BFA. “We were pleased to work closely with the state of New Hampshire and the city of Rochester to make this happen. Our collaborative approach shows New Hampshire is committed to growing our businesses here in the state and is always looking at creative opportunities. We want Granite State companies to know they can count on us for innovative solutions when they are ready to expand their operations.”

    SIG SAUER’s world headquarters is located at Pease International Tradeport in Newington, New Hampshire and the company operates six additional locations across the state of New Hampshire, in addition to operations in Arkansas and Oregon.
