Italy’s Beretta to build firearms plant in US
NASHVILLE, Tennessee (AP) — Italian gun maker Beretta says it is building a manufacturing and research plant in Tennessee.
The $45 million plant in the Nashville suburb of Gallatin is projected to create 300 new jobs.
The family-owned company has operated in Italy since 1526. Beretta makes a variety of firearms, ranging from hunting shotguns to the U.S. Armed Forces M-9 pistol.
Beretta says it plans to complete the new factory this year.
