SUMMERVILLE, SC –

American Tactical Imports (ATI), a worldwide importer of firearms, ammunition and tactical equipment to the United States, announced today that it will open a warehousing and distribution location in Dorchester County.

The Eastport Industrial Park location in Summerville also will be the site for limited firearm assembly, as well as the company’s headquarters, its customer service center and its sales office.

The $2.7 million investment is expected to generate 117 new jobs.

“This move to South Carolina will help ensure a solid foundation for our company,” says Tony DiChario, president and founder of American Tactical Imports. “The relocation process will be smooth and we have ensured that the process will not affect customer service, product distribution or any other segment of our business. The people of South Carolina have welcomed ATI with open arms and we are excited about making our new corporate home there.”

As one of the gun industry’s top importers of firearms and firearm related accessories, ATI’s decision to relocate is two-fold. ATI believes it is imperative that a firearms importer and manufacturer do business within a state that is friendly to the second amendment rights of the people. . .
