Sig Sauer Moving Headquarters to Portsmouth
Sig Sauer is moving from two Exeter locations to a consolidated property in Portsmouth, New Hampshire this year. The former Celistica facility at the Pease International Tradeport area will house Sig Sauer's current 600 employess plus 100 additional to be hired this year. The administration move will be complete by early June, with manufacturing to follow by mid-2013.
The new building boasts 206,000 square feet and is located at 72 Pease Boulevard. It has been vacant for nine years awaiting large entity to show interest. Although the bulk of manufacturing will be done at the new location, Sig Sauer intends to keep its current Exeter and Epping offices open, as its business has tripled since 2006.

Increasing their workforce is a good sign for Sig and unemployment rate. Maybe the economy is getting better...

It is always good news when more jobs are available.
I would put those 100 hires to use producing nothing but magazines for Sig autos.

The irony of it is this is the "OLD" Pease AFB. They closed down a large bomber base and now will be making one of the worlds finest guns.

I love the fact that a good company like Sig is selling more and growing, but pushing 2000 handguns a day leaves a lot of quality control issues that simply cant be caught by the naked eye. Look at Gibson guitars, they used to be the best guitar on the market shadowed closely by Fender. Now due to popularity and the fact that thousands of guitars are churned out every day, they are the laughing stock of the guitar world and they still charge premium prices. Once again, growth is good as long as quality control does not suffer so I hope that while Sig is very happy with current and prospective future sales, they will still adhere to the standard that has defined them.

Press releases are, by definition, a glowing report. Under the covers, Sig is in a very tough financial spot right now. Don't be led by a ring in your nose. Do your own research. While they may survive, the move to the Pease facility should not be misinterpreted. Sig is desperately trying to position itself for business that may never come. They definitely don't have it now. They are consistently losing government contracts to other manufacturers and have a shameful record in the ones they have managed to land recently. Sig's future will be determined by how much of the contract business they can recover. 2000 handguns a day? Please don't be that foolish. Sig has not manufactured 2000 guns in any given week, let alone day, in their company history.
Take out the nose ring. Do your own research.
