Not seen or heard of this one yet. It's a very tantalizing thought, tho. For sure, OH Gov Kasich would favor this mightily, given that he has been very proactive in attracting new industry to Ohio. His pro-business, pro-gun stance, as well as that of both houses of the Legislature, would accommodate Colt easily. However, there are some ongoing & unresolved concerns here about the JobsOhio agency that may give pause to a major industry relocating to OH. Also, OH is not a Right-to-Work state, so there would be some labor issues to be factored into Colt's final decision. On a final note, I imagine the outrage of the anti-gunners here if Colt took the deal. JMHO. ;)

A move to Texas would be better. Ohio ,like , Pa talks pro gun ,but then elects Obama twice. By the way how are you coal people in Ohio doing? Oh that's right ,the big O is putting you out of business after the election. No go to Ohio Colt.

A million to one chance of it ever happening, but it's something to dream about....The Colt factory, repair shop, and custom shop, all within easy driving distance...:cool:

As a proud union tool and die maker if it is nearby I may even apply to work there! We have the skilled workforce right here. Hmmm.....I wonder if there is an employee discount:p????

"not knowing where in Ohio" Lorain Ohio was mentioned, at the recently closed Ford Plant.

In today's world, most companies would move most management employees and select skilled positions. The rest would be offered a job at the new facility with perhaps some assistance with moving expenses. It's a hard nosed unfeeling world we live in.
