There will be a big new 300,000-square-foot ammo plant in Georgia, thanks to Beretta. Beretta Holding Group, through its acquisition of Norma Precision, announced it will invest $60 million in a state-of-the-art ammunition manufacturing and distribution facility in Savannah, Georgia.
Norma Precision will construct a 300,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility that will handle ammunition manufacturing, assembly, and distribution. This investment is a major step for the Beretta Holding Group which already employs nearly 1,000 employees in the United States through Beretta USA, Benelli USA, Burris, Steiner eOptics, and Norma Precision. By adding ammunition to its U.S. operations, the new Savannah, GA facility expands the Beretta Holding Group’s already extensive footprint in the USA.
