Norma Ammo Moves Headquarters To Savannah
Another company associated with the booming firearms industry is moving operations to Georgia, adding to the state’s growing influence and presence in the industry. According to data from the National Shooting Sports Foundation, Georgia has become one of the country’s top 10 states for firearm manufacturing.
On day before he signed into law Constitutional Carry in Georgia, Gov. Brian P. Kemp announced on April 11, 2022, that Norma Precision Ammunition, a subsidiary of the leading European ammunition manufacturer RUAG Ammotec, is establishing its U.S. headquarters, manufacturing site, and warehousing and distribution operations near Savannah in Chatham County.
Norma Precision Ammunition has already been the process of hiring employees.
“With their facilities in close proximity to the Port of Savannah—the top port for U.S. exports—and our highly-skilled pool of talent, I’m confident that RUAG Ammotec will be very pleased with their decision to invest in the Peach State,” said Gov. Kemp. “I’m grateful to Norma Precision Ammunition for their job-stimulating investments, and I look forward to seeing the opportunities this creates for hardworking Georgians in the region.”
Swiss-based RUAG Ammotec has operations in 12 different countries. The company develops and produces high-end ammunition for sport shooters, special operations forces and peace officers worldwide, serving key markets in the military, law enforcement, hunting, and sporting goods sectors. In 2021, Norma Precision Ammunition imported more than 400 containers of ammunition from RUAG Ammotec factories in Europe, while also delivering more than 30 million cartridges of ammunition made in the U.S.
“Norma Precision Ammunition has been manufacturing in the United States for over 10 years as RUAG Ammotec, USA. The past four years have been remarkable years of steady growth. With this relocation, 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 Christoph Eisenhardt, President and CEO of RUAG Ammotec. “I am pleased with all that Georgia has to offer our company.
