Firearm component manufacturer Check-Mate Industries (West Babylon, N.Y.) is expanding to southwest Georgia. The company’s expansion will create 230 jobs and take place over a five-year period. It includes a $16 million investment.
Company Chairman and CEO Regina Vieweg counts a quality workforce among the factors that attracted Check-Mate to the state.
“Georgia has great workforce training programs in place,” she noted. “We resonated with the pro-business environment. We believe the state provides a great foundation for Check-Mate’s growth.”
Check-Mate Industries’ products are 100-percent designed, developed, and manufactured in the United States. Since 1972, the company has operated as a tool and die, stamping, and assembly manufacturer.
“We believe Check-Mate’s success is due in large part to our commitment to precision,” said President Joe DeBello. “Quality is what our customers rely on. We work to ensure that everything we produce is crafted to the highest standards and we know that’s why manufacturers rely on us year after year.”
From aerospace and automotive to hardware and communications, Check-Mate’s state-of-the-art tool room has the capability to handle just about any project. However, it is best known for medical and firearms components. These components include handgun and rifle magazines, trigger bars, receivers, disconnects, sears, sear springs, blank firing attachments, sight assemblies, M60 cover assembly, feed trays and rifle dust covers.
