Troy Industries begins the relocation of its headquarters and manufacturing plant to Clarksville, Tenn., in June. The transition is expected to be complete after five years and require a total investment of $7.2 million.

The company, built by Steve Troy Jr. in 2003—currently based in West Springfield, Mass.—is one of the nation’s largest suppliers of OEM small-arms accessories, with a wide-ranging customer base that includes military and law-enforcement personnel. It specializes in producing reliable, top-quality small-arms components, accessories and complete weapon upgrades.

“While Troy has enjoyed a very successful period of growth in Massachusetts, the changing climate for firearms manufacturers in the state determined the need for our relocation to Tennessee to ensure the continued success of the company,” Troy said. “We are excited to begin this new venture and appreciate all the support we have already received from Rep. Mark Green, Gov. Bill Lee and the state of Tennessee in making this relocation possible.”

“I appreciate Troy for choosing to relocate to Tennessee and am proud to partner with this world-renowned firearms manufacturer,” Tenn. Gov. Bill Lee (R) said. “When companies pick Tennessee to locate or expand their operations, it is a vote of confidence to our state’s business-friendly climate and skilled workforce. I thank Troy for this investment and the creation of new jobs for Tennesseans.”

U.S. Rep. Mark Green (Tenn.-R) added, “I’m pleased to welcome Troy Industries to Tennessee’s 7th District. For 17 years, Troy has been a leader in the firearm accessory industry. Our welcoming business climate provides the perfect place for businesses to flourish without fear of crushing over-regulation and high taxes. I’m glad to have helped recruit Troy to bring their operations and company headquarters to Clarksville, and I look forward to watching the company’s impact creating jobs and growth in our community in the months and years ahead.”
