Swiss-Based Norma Precision Ammunition Plans Garden City, Georgia, Headquarters-Operations

Norma Precision Ammunition, a subsidiary of the Swiss-based ammunition manufacturer RUAG Ammotec, plans to establish its U.S. headquarters, manufacturing site, and warehousing and distribution operations in Garden City, Chatham County, Georgia.

“We are pleased to announce the official relocation of Norma Precision Ammunition to the Georgia Lowcountry,” said Paul Lemke, President of Norma Precision Ammunition. “The Savannah area offers a significant opportunity to expand our small arms ammunition manufacturing and distribution operations to meet growing customer demand and to better serve our partners in the small arms industry, while providing unmatched access to the world-class Port of Savannah.”

In 2021, Norma Precision Ammunition imported over 400 containers of ammunition from RUAG Ammotec factories in Europe, while also delivering over 30 million cartridges of ammunition made in the U.S.

“We’re proud that RUAG Ammotec has chosen Georgia as home to all of their U.S. activities,” said Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) Commissioner Pat Wilson. “The company has experienced unprecedented growth, and Norma Precision Ammunition’s decision to invest and grow in the Savannah region highlights the importance of Georgia’s unmatched workforce development programs, logistics advantages, and quality of life. I am grateful for the partnership of the elected officials and economic development partners in southeast Georgia who went above and beyond to recruit and support this exciting addition to Georgia’s firearms industry.”

With operations in 12 different countries, Swiss-based RUAG Ammotec develops and produces high-end ammunition for sports shooters, special operations forces, and peace officers worldwide, serving key markets in the military, law enforcement, hunting, and sporting goods sectors.

“Norma’s decision to locate in the Savannah area is a perfect example of the fundamental link between manufacturing and logistics, and how Georgia excels at helping companies succeed,” said Griff Lynch, Executive Director of the Georgia Ports Authority. “We are proud to welcome Norma Precision Ammunition to our state, and to serve their global logistics needs.”

“Today’s announcement that Norma Precision Ammunition will locate their U.S. headquarters, manufacturing and distribution operations to Chatham County is a testament that our region has the infrastructure and skilled workforce for companies to locate and thrive here,” said Trip Tollison, President and CEO, Savannah Economic Development Authority. “This is great news for our region and we look forward to working with Norma Precision Ammunition as they grow here in Savannah.”
