BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - The Bryan Commerce and Development Incorporated (BCD) approved a performance-based economic development agreement today with Strategic Armory Corps (SAC) to build its world headquarters in Bryan.

The agreement puts the 204-acre property on Mumford Road back on the tax rolls after not being included since 1998.

Bobby Gutierrez, the City of Bryan Mayor says the Strategic Armory Corps is a world wide manufacturing company that has several different companies under one roof.

According to the SAC website, the corporation combines companies within the firearms industry. A press release from the city says that SAC companies create highly respected products and services designed to meet the expectations of military, law enforcement, and commercial groups worldwide.

Construction will be in two phases and will start within 18 months of the deal being finalized.

Gutierrez says phase one will consist of building the manufacturing facility and moving all the different companies involved in the manufacturing, under one roof and phase two will include a state-of-the-art training facility.

“The City of Bryan is excited to welcome this world-renowned corporation that will provide sustainable economic impact as well as an avenue to assist in ensuring our military and law enforcement personnel have the tools they need to keep America safe,” said Gutierrez.

“Having all our state-of-the-art infrastructure now on Texan soil is the realization of a personal dream. Bryan welcomed us with open arms, and we are very grateful for this moment. It is an honor for the Strategic Armory Corps to produce the world’s best tactical equipment in Texas, a milestone for our brands Armalite, Surgeon, McMillan, and AWC, which have global distribution,” said SAC President of the Board and Owner Jose Augusto Schincariol.

“This is going to be bringing jobs here, some jobs will be relocating here, and some jobs will be hired here, so it’s a great opportunity for Bryan, it’s a great opportunity for the employment base we have here. These are high paying jobs, so with advanced manufacturing, the possibilities are endless,” said Gutierrez.

After 5 years of operations, SAC must have 70 full-time jobs with an average salary of at least $55,000.
