Beretta Holding S.A Plans Bryan County, Georgia, Campus

Beretta Holding S.A., through its subsidiary Norma Precision Inc., will build a manufacturing, assembly, and distribution facility in Bryan County, Georgia. The $60 million project is expected to create 600 jobs.

The new 300,000-square-foot facility will be located at Interstate Centre III in Bryan County, a Georgia Ready for Accelerated Development (GRAD) certified site. Following its completion, operations from the Chatham County location will be moved to Bryan County.

"Norma Precision manufactured ammunition in the United States for 12 years as RUAG Ammotec USA. The past four years have been remarkable in terms of steady growth. With this expansion and focus on the Norma ammunition brand, we will continue to grow while better serving our customers and industry partners in the United States and abroad," said Dr. Pietro Gussalli Beretta, President and CEO of Beretta Holding S.A. "I am pleased with all that Georgia has to offer to our company, and I am confident this long-term partnership will be mutually beneficial."

Norma Precision, formerly a U.S. subsidiary of Ammotec Inc., was recently acquired by Beretta Holding S.A., one of the world’s oldest industrial groups. The company will continue to develop and produce high-end ammunition to serve key markets in the hunting, sporting goods, optics, military, and law enforcement sectors.

“Projects of this size benefit entire regions of the state. Whether it’s through hiring or partnering with local suppliers, the economic impact of Norma Precision’s new facility will be felt across county lines,” noted GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “Part of having a business-friendly environment is cooperation between communities, and it’s one of the reasons that Georgia’s a top state to do business. Bryan and Chatham counties worked together to create an innovative solution to secure Norma Precision’s new jobs for Georgians in the region. Thank you to everyone who helped make this happen!”

Senior Project Manager Fernanda Kirchner represented the Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) in partnership with the Development Authority of Bryan County, Georgia Ports Authority, Georgia Power, the State of Georgia Europe Office, and Georgia Quick Start.

"GPA welcomes Norma Precision’s growth in the region," added Griff Lynch, Executive Director of the Georgia Ports Authority. "The company is a valued member of our manufacturing community, and its expansion here in Georgia is a testament to the state’s broad logistics network and its ability to reach major domestic and global markets efficiently."
