Precision Military Aerodynamics Expands In Dunlap, Tennessee

08/01/2016
Precision Military Aerodynamics, which manufactures parachutes for sporting and military use around the world, is investing $1.8 million to expand its facility in Dunlap, Tennessee.

The company, which recently moved into its new 200,000 square-foot facility in Dunlap to expand into new lines of production, will create 100 new full-time jobs as part of the investment.

“Since 1980, we’ve had continuous operations in Dunlap and Sequatchie County. We could locate anywhere, but it’s the work ethic, attention to detail and the quality of the people and employees in Southeast Tennessee that makes all the difference,” President/CEO George Galloway said. “As we’re shipping our products across the world, we’re finding our customers want American-made. This is a sizable expansion for Precision Military Aerodynamics, and we’re proud to be doing so here in Dunlap.”

“Whether it is engineering the latest high-performance aircraft or designing the most advanced parachutes for elite Special Forces, Tennessee is known for its strong ties to the defense and aerospace industry,” Governor Bill Haslam said. “Precision Military Aerodynamics is one of the state’s leaders in this thriving sector. The creation of 100 new jobs will create a positive jolt for the local economy and increase employment opportunities for Dunlap and Sequatchie residents. I’d like to thank Precision Military Aerodynamics for its continued commitment to Tennessee and bringing us another step closer to making Tennessee the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs.”

“The 100 new jobs are a tremendous boost to the city of Dunlap,” city of Dunlap Mayor Dwain Land said. “Without the assistance of Governor Haslam and his staff, this would not have been possible. I’d like to thank Precision Military Aerodynamics for its commitment to provide more job opportunities that will have a lasting impact on our residents.”

Dunlap received a $200,350 Appalachian Regional Commission grant as an incentive to construct an access road and upgrade the water pumping station in the Dunlap Industrial Parks for Precision Military Aerodynamics’ facility.
