These are the words in the title are "going out of business". So, it was easy to find another American company in the same situation, bankruptcy in the case of Remington. I don't think the two situations are the same, as one is just closing it's doors in the case of Shop Vac.
There seem to be many reasons for Remington's demise:
The recall of that many rifles and the resulting lawsuits would cause them financial troubles over and above any sales issues. The rifle in question, the Model 700 is the most popular bolt action platform in the world and countless rifles have been made and sold using it. There were issues with the trigger mechanism which is essentially a "drop in" part that could be easily changed out, but wasn't even when only a few accidental discharges were well known and the blame for that can be laid at the foot of management.
A complete discussion of the history can be found here and in other searches. This link mentions that it was used by the military in it's sniper platforms and it still in service to this day:
The bankruptcy case now in the courts are being settled by other companies bidding on the various portions of Remington holdings:
Hopefully, the new owners will retain all the original employees to reduce the hardships they would otherwise face. The mayor of Iilion NY has already stated he's will to provide any support needed to retain the factory in that small town, a good thing:
My point initially was about the hardships to the communities in both cases, where folks actually lost their jobs or may eventually. Shop Vac is well known to those in the woodworking community, but Remington's story may not be, so I elaborated. Sorry for any misinterpretation guys.
