Norma Precision Ammunition is relocating to Georgia’s Chatham County, with plans to expand small arms ammo manufacturing and distribution operations. A subsidiary of Swiss-based ammo manufacturer RUAG Ammotec, Norma has established its U.S. headquarters, manufacturing site, and warehousing and distribution operations in Garden City, which is located about five miles northwest of Savannah, Georgia.

With operations in 12 different countries, RUAG Ammotec produces ammunition for the military, law enforcement, hunting and sporting goods sectors. Last year, 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 United States.

Georgia is a national leader in advanced manufacturing and continues to attract businesses such as RUAG Ammotec. According to National Shooting Sports Foundation data, Georgia is one of the country’s top 10 states for firearm manufacturing. The state’s strength across multiple manufacturing sectors resulted in a GDP of $59.5 billion in 2020, which is the latest data available. The Georgia Department of Labor estimated that there were 392,508 manufacturing jobs in the state as of the third quarter of 2021.

“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 Georgia Gov. Brian 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.”

“Norma Precision Ammunition has been manufacturing in the United States for more than 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. I am confident that with our relocation, we have chosen the right community to partner with to ensure mutual long-term success.”

Norma Precision Ammunition is located at 141 Prosperity Drive in Garden City. The company is currently hiring for advanced manufacturing, distribution, management and sales. Learn more at normashooting.com.
