You might remember in February when SSUSA first reported on Shell Shock Technologies. The company recently announced the launch of its high-volume manufacturing subsidiary, ShellTech. Additionally, a new manufacturing plant will open in in Eubank, KY, focusing on the manufacture of Shell Shock Technologies’ NAS3 cases. With an investment of approximately $3.2 million, ShellTech aims to create 50 new full-time jobs within Pulaski County. 

ShellTech will assemble NAS3 cases under a long-term contract from its parent company. The 14,000-square foot facility was previously used for the contract-manufacturing and loading of all SIG Sauer ammunition. ShellTech will begin by assembling 9 mm cases, but will soon add 5.56 mm, .308, .45 ACP, .380 and .40 S&W cases, along with an assortment of other popular pistol and rifle calibers.

“We are proud to announce the creation of our subsidiary ShellTech; this new high-volume manufacturing operation will significantly accelerate the roll out of Shell Shock’s NAS3 case technology. We are especially happy to be opening this plant in Pulaski County and can’t thank the county, the Commonwealth of Kentucky or the various regional and local development agencies enough for helping to make this plant a reality,” said Craig Knight, president and CEO of Shell Shock Technologies and ShellTech.

The Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority (KEDFA) has tentatively approved ShellTech for tax incentives of up to $800,000 through the Kentucky Business Investment program, which is intended to spur investment and job growth within the community.
