GS Performance, a Glock handgun accessory and parts manufacturer, will invest $6.9 million to relocate its headquarters, manufacturing and distribution operations to Nashville, Tennessee. The company plans to create 110 new jobs over the next five years.
The Glock gun manufacturer is renovating and making upgrades to an existing 65,000-square-foot facility located at 1930 Air Lane Dr. in Nashville. The building is undergoing extensive retrofitting, which is expected to be complete in November 2020.
“Nashville was an easy choice for us; low taxes, minimal business regulations, logistically sound for our internet shipping operations, strategically placed to attract visitors from the entire East Coast and the cool vibe of the music scene made it the perfect place to expand. It also helped that my wife, Tammy, is from Dalton, Georgia and she is happy to be back in the South,” said Lenny Magill, managing member, GS Performance.
“As our economy continues to move forward and grow, we're proud to welcome GS Performance to Tennessee, and we thank the company for its commitment to invest in the people of our state. The 110 new quality jobs created by this relocation are a great opportunity for Nashville and I look forward to seeing the company grow in the years to come,” said Governor Bill Lee.
“Our strong workforce and reputation as a leading state for advanced manufacturing continues to make Tennessee the top choice for companies to come and grow their business. We are pleased to welcome another West Coast, California-based company to Tennessee. GS Performance has established itself as a world-renowned gun manufacturer, and we thank the company for its commitment to Tennessee,” noted Bob Rolfe, Commissioner of TNECD.
