Daniel Defense announces expansion plans

BRYAN CO., GA (WTOC) - A local gun manufacturer isn't waiting on the election results when it comes to deciding whether to expand the business.

Daniel Defense in Bryan County announced this week they are building a bigger and better facility on Oracal Parkway, down the road from their current building.

The CEO says sales are up 60 percent this year, some of that is politically charged, but they're confident this expansion was the right move regardless of who the next president will be.

"We watch the economy, we watch politics and we have business plans for any path that it could take. We have a plan for it," said Daniel Defense CEO Marty Daniel.

They will break ground in a couple of months and hope to have the project completed by Summer 2017. The company is already looking to hire more employees, for more information please click here.
