NY firearms company relocating to Summerville

Posted: Updated:

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina officials say a New York-based company that makes firearms, ammunition and tactical equipment is relocating its headquarters in Dorchester County.

The state Department of Commerce said Monday the $2.7 million investment by American Tactical Imports would mean more than 100 new jobs for the Summerville area.

ATI is now based in Rochester, N.Y. Company officials say ATI is also setting up a distribution center and moving its customer service operations and sales office to the Summerville site.

The new facility will also be home to ATI's limited firearm assembly. Company officials say the relocation begins next month.
