C&H Precision Weapons announced last week it is growing operations and will be adding jobs once a new facility is built.
CHPWS is a family-owned and operated small business that has long specialized in hand-crafted precision rifles, custom 1911s, pistol slide upgrades, and the design and manufacturing of special projects within the firearms industry. Founded in 2012 as largely a one-man operation, the company moved from Florida and grew to over 30 employees in its current location in Richmond Hill, Georgia. Now, the company is planning a new state-of-the-art manufacturing and headquarters facility in the area.
All told, the estimated $10 million project is projected to create 20 to 30 new jobs.

"It has been incredible watching the success and growth C&H has experienced since the company moved to Richmond Hill in 2017,” said Development Authority of Bryan County Chairman Jon Seagraves. "With the focus and value the company places on its employees, C&H is a great industry partner to have in the community, and we are glad they have chosen to undertake their expansion here in Bryan County."
As covered by Guns.com earlier this year, Georgia is fast becoming a manufacturing hub for the American firearms industry. In addition to CHPWS, the Peachtree State is home to Daniel DefenseGlockHeckler & KochNorma, Remington, and Taurus.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation has named Georgia one of the top 10 states in the nation for firearms manufacturing, and the state has more than 80 gun-related enterprises scattered throughout the state. The trade group estimated in 2020 that these companies and their suppliers generated a healthy $1.5 billion in economic impact and employed more than 7,000 people.
