After months of searching, Beretta USA announced this morning that it will expand its U.S. operations by building a new firearms manufacturing plant just outside of Nashville, Tennessee.
Beretta officials made the announcement along with Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam that the company will invest $45 million in a state-of-the-art manufacturing and R&D facility, and bring to the Volunteer State 300 new jobs. The company is expected to complete construction on the facility this year in Gallatin Industrial Park.
“Beretta is one of the world’s greatest companies, and their decision to expand into Tennessee speaks to the standards of craftsmanship and quality our state’s workforce embraces every day,” Haslam said. “Attracting a legendary company like Beretta reinforces our goal of becoming the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high-quality jobs. I want to thank the Beretta family for their substantial investment in Tennessee and the 300 jobs they’ll create in Sumner County.”
