In January 2014 Beretta announced that Gallatin, Tennessee, (a suburb of Nashville) would be the new location of its United States manufacturing plant and the company will spend close to $45 million towards its new facilities in the "Volunteer State. The company is currently in negotiations with Gallatin officials to purchase a site at an industrial center close to 100 acres in size where their manufacturing and research and development facility will be built. Construction is slated to start in May 2014, with production to commence in the first quarter of 2015.

Franco Gussalli Beretta, Beretta USA's executive vice president stated via press release: "We're convinced we could find no better place than Tennessee to establish our new manufacturing enterprise.

One of the oldest firearms companies in existence, Beretta is best known for producing the M9 service pistol for the U.S. Armed Forces for the past three decades. Beretta USA was originally formed to fulfill the obligations of the U.S. government contract by making its pistols in the United States. The new facility in Gallatin will employ at least 300 people to start.
Beretta is not the first and in all likelihood will not be the last to make such a move in light of stricter firearms legislation being passed in its home state.

Beretta, a global manufacturer of high-quality sporting and military firearms, announced in 2014 its plans to invest $45 million in the manufacturing facility and create 300 new Tennessee jobs. The new 156,000 square foot facility, located on 100 acres, will produce eight different firearms- six handguns, one shotgun and one sporting rifle. Once fully operational, the Gallatin facility is expected to produce 500,000 firearms annually. Beretta will also have an outdoor shooting range on site.
During the ceremony, Franco Gussalli Beretta, executive vice president of Beretta USA, presented Gov. Haslam with the first Beretta shotgun produced in Tennessee. Following the ceremony, attendees were given a tour where they got an inside look at how Beretta firearms are manufactured.
Beretta is the world's oldest manufacturing dynasty, operating since 1526 in Italy. The company is privately owned and operated by members of the 15th and 16th generations of the Beretta family. Beretta supplies quality sporting and self-defense firearms to consumers worldwide. The company manufactures the U.S. Armed Forces M-9 pistol, the standard sidearm of U.S. soldiers since 1985.
"This is an important day for Beretta USA," said Franco Gussalli Beretta, executive vice president of Beretta USA Corp. "Our decision to invest and grow brought us to Tennessee and Gallatin. Our new Gallatin facility is an important part of our growth not only in the United States, but for our markets throughout the world."
Beretta company officials evaluated hundreds of sites across 22 states, and then visited 80 locations in seven different states before deciding on the Gallatin location in 2013.
"Beretta is one of the world's greatest companies, and their decision to expand into Tennessee speaks to the standards of craftsmanship and quality our state's workforce embraces every day," Haslam said.
