  • A New York-based company that makes firearms, ammunition and tactical equipment is relocating its headquarters in Dorchester County, South Carolina officials announced Monday.
    The state Department of Commerce said that the $2.7 million investment by Rochester-based American Tactical Imports would mean more than 100 new jobs for the Summerville area.
    At its new South Carolina facilities, ATI is also setting up a distribution center and a limited firearm assembly.
    The company is also moving its customer service operations and sales office to the Summerville site, officials said.
    “This move to South Carolina will help ensure a solid foundation for our company,” Tony DiChario, president and founder of American Tactical Imports, said in a news release. “The people of South Carolina have welcomed ATI with open arms and we are excited about making our new corporate home there.”
    According to its website, ATI makes a variety of products, including handguns, shotguns, rifles, vests and handcuffs.
