Gun-maker Taurus eyes Georgia HQ - Atlanta Business Chronicle:
A Miami-based small-arms manufacturer has Georgia in its sights for a corporate relocation that would create up to 300 jobs.
Taurus USA is also eyeing locations in Alabama, South Carolina and Brevard County, Fla., for the up to $20 million investment.
If Taurus relocated to Georgia from its Hialeah, Fla., location, it would locate manufacturing, distribution and corporate jobs in an up to 125,000-square-foot facility. The jobs would pay, on average, about $42,000.
Taurus makes a variety of semi-automatic pistols, revolvers and rifles. The company imports most of its guns from Brazil, but wants to boost its U.S. production capacity.
