Ithaca Gun Company no longer set to come to Horry County

Ithaca Gun Company, an Ohio-based firearms manufacturer, has not responded to a deadline and appears will not be coming to Horry County. In October of 2013, the company had announced plans to bring 120 high-skilled jobs and a capital investment of approximately $6.7 million to the area. They were slated to construct a new 20,000 square foot facility at Horry County's Cool Springs Business Park located near Aynor.

This news, along with the news of Gunmaker PTR laying off workers and cutting wages doesn't bode well for the promise of good paying manufacturing jobs in the area.
