Beretta USA has made the announcement that they are moving all manufacturing out of Maryland. This has been a while in coming and my contacts inside Beretta have kept me in the loop during their decision process.
Apparently this does not include any of the office staff which means they will retain a Maryland presence despite the change in firearm laws there.
A couple of observations:
1. Bet Maryland is lamenting the loss of tax revenue now. The sheer volume of money a company like Beretta brings into a community is staggering.
2. Come on Beretta…why leave the office folks behind? That’s kind of a cheap shot.
