Sig Sauer Looks to Expand Success in U.S. Operations

The world-wide firearm manufacturer has been adding employees over the past four years and expects the market to allow it to continue hiring. They need more room and have plenty of options.

Here, instead, we have Americans prospering in spite of what left-leaning gun grabbers have wrought upon their industry in the way of burdensome regulations. And, I must add that Sig’s firearms are legendary and it is the free market that recognizes its quality.
