Firearms Manufacturer SCCY Industries Plans Plant In Maryville, Tennessee

04/13/2017
SCCY Industries, a firearms manufacturer that specializes in pistols and sidearms, will invest $22.5 million to establish its production facility and headquarters, 18 miles south of Knoxville, in Maryville, Tennessee.

The company’s new 150,00-square-foot plant, located in Blount County’s Big Springs Industrial Park, will be its primary manufacturing operation and also include its corporate offices. The new facility is expected to create 350 jobs and be operational in the first half of 2018.

“SCCY Industries has been searching for a new home for many years due to our explosive growth in the shooting sports industry,” Joe Roebuck, SCCY Founder & CEO, said.

“We exhaustively searched many states. After doing so, I found Tennessee to be one of the top manufacturing states and, in my opinion, No. 1 in the East. I have owned and operated several manufacturing companies during my career as a product developer and businessman. Success all comes down to people, and Tennessee seems to boast good old-fashioned American work ethic. I am honored to call Blount County, Tennessee SCCY’s new home,” he added.

“In Tennessee, we pride ourselves on craftsmanship and manufacturing excellence,” Governor Bill Haslam said. “Our skilled workforce is known for producing some of the world’s best-known products and brands. I’m pleased that SCCY has chosen to join the growing roster of manufacturing companies that call Tennessee home. The creation of over 350 new jobs with this investment brings us closer to our goal of making Tennessee the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs.”

“The collaborative efforts between the Blount Partnership, the State of Tennessee, Blount County, the city of Maryville and many others have added another solid company in SCCY to our already bustling economy,” Maryville Mayor Tom Taylor said.

“Attracting and retaining good companies with above average wages is something we actively strive for when recruiting new companies to the area,” Fred Lawson, chair of the Blount County Industrial Development Board, said. “We found one of those in SCCY, and we welcome the company to Blount County.”
