Baretta Holding S.A. subsidiary Norma Precision is investing $60 million to open a new manufacturing site in Georgia.

Baretta Holding S.A.-owned firm Norma Precision Inc. is investing $60 million to open a new ammunition manufacturing, assembly, and distribution facility in Bryan County, GA, a release issued by Gov. Brian P. Kemp announced Thursday.

“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,” Dr. Pietro Gussalli Baretta, president and chief executive officer of Baretta Holding S.A., said in a release. “I am pleased with all that Georgia has to offer our company, and I am confident this long-term partnership will be mutually beneficial.”

Norma Precision supplies high-end ammunition to consumers in the hunting, sporting goods, optics, military, and law enforcement sectors. Operations from the company’s Chatham County site will be relocated to a new 300,000-sq-ft site at Interstate Centre III in Bryan County.

“This new facility offers Norma Precision a significant opportunity to expand our small arms ammunition manufacturing and distribution operations to meet our customer expectations in the United States and abroad,” said Norma Precision CEO Paul Lemke in a statement.

600 new jobs will be created as a result of Baretta Holding S.A.’s investment. Employees at the firm’s Chatham County location are able to apply for positions at the new facility.
