Taurus Holdings, Inc. (Taurus USA) has announced plans to establish a manufacturing facility in Bainbridge, Ga., in Decatur County, a relocation that will create more than 300 new jobs with a combined investment of over $22.5 million in infrastructure and operations. Taurus USA, through its subsidiaries, currently manufactures or distributes the Taurus, Rossi, and Heritage Manufacturing product lines from its Miami, Fla., location. 

“Taurus USA’s decision to locate to Bainbridge is not only a win for the community, but for the region,” said Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) Commissioner Pat Wilson. “Georgia has a long history in the manufacturing industry sector, and we are excited to add Taurus to the long list of manufacturers that are based here. I am confident that our thriving pro-business environment and unmatched logistics network along with the abundance of resources available in Bainbridge including a skilled workforce will allow Taurus to succeed in Georgia.”

Taurus USA says it has plans to expand its U.S. engineering and production extensively through 2025, with intentions of investing a substantial amount of capital and resources in the Bainbridge area, providing a positive economic impact as it employs skilled labor, administrative personnel, customer service representatives and management teams in the new facility. 

David Blenker, President and CEO of Taurus USA said, “The decision to relocate stems from our desire to expand our facility, keeping all operations in one location,” he said. “All involved have welcomed Taurus, from the Governor’s office to the Bainbridge-Decator County Chamber of Commerce. We look forward to establishing a solid workforce and giving back to a great community.”

Groundbreaking ceremonies will take place mid-summer 2018.
