Norma Precision Ammo Relocates To Georgia
Georgia Gov. Brian P. Kemp announced earlier this month that Norma Precision Ammunition—a subsidiary of the leading European ammunition manufacturer RUAG Ammotec—has established its U.S. headquarters, manufacturing site and warehousing and distribution operations in Chatham County, Ga.
“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 Governor 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.”
With operations in 12 different countries, Swiss-based RUAG Ammotec develops and produces ammunition for sport shooters, hunters, special operations forces and law enforcement officers. In 2021, Norma Precision Ammunition imported more than 400 containers of ammunition from RUAG Ammotec factories in Europe, while also delivering over 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,” said Christoph Eisenhardt, president and CEO of RUAG Ammotec. “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. I am pleased with all that Georgia has to offer our company. I am confident that with our relocation, we have chosen the right community to partner with to ensure mutual long-term success.”
“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.”
The new Norma Precision Ammunition location is at 141 Prosperity Drive in Garden City, Ga. The company is currently hiring for advanced manufacturing, distribution, management and sales opportunities.
