Daniel Defense, which announced last month it will invest $29.5 million and create 75 new jobs at its existing operations in North Bryan County, is holding a job fair Saturday to begin filling those positions.
The event will be held 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum in Pooler. Attendees are asked to bring a resume. Positions that need to be filled include machine operators, engineers, CNC programmers, CNC machinists, toolmakers, maintenance, IT personnel, quality control and administrative.
Daniel Defense was founded by Marty Daniel more than a decade ago in Chatham County. In 2009, Daniel Defense scaled operations and moved into the present facility in Bryan County at the Interstate Commerce Centre near Black Creek. As a result of a continued increase in production demand, Daniel Defense will consolidate its Bryan County facility and its Ridgeland, S.C., facility into a single operation.
“This consolidation will streamline our operational efficiencies on many different levels and will allow us to continue to grow our team,” Daniel said at the time. “It is very important that we attract, hire and retain exceptional talent. This new facility will allow us to do just that, and continue to accelerate our market share in the firearms business.”
The expansion was announced by Gov. Nathan Deal.
“We are very pleased Daniel Defense has chosen to consolidate their operations in Georgia and specifically into a new facility in Interstate Centre in Bryan County,” said Derrick Smith, chairman of the Development Authority of Bryan County. “The consolidation will bring the company to 215 total employees in Bryan County. We are excited to work with Daniel Defense as they grow their business and continue to invest and create quality jobs in the community.”
