NiteSite has confirmed plans to move into leased Fort Worth space on July 29 as the British night vision company establishes a Cowtown presence, according to the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce.

The York, England-based firm, which manufactures night vision firearms products, has leased 3,000 square feet at 2574 Gravel Drive.

The facility will serve as the company’s U.S. distribution center for night vision rifle scopes, which are manufactured in the United Kingdom. The company will employ up to four workers, initially, upon opening.

“But they could grow and go into a bigger spot,” said David Berzina, executive vice president of economic development with the Fort Worth Chamber.

The company chose Fort Worth since it’s the home base for Nation’s Best Sports, a group purchasing agency in the sporting goods industry. 

“They represent 800 [sporting goods] stores nationwide. They’re going to get a lot more exposure than they have before,” said Berzina, referring to NiteSite and explaining that the company received no tax incentives from the city since its employees count would be too low to qualify. 

Mayor Betsy Price expressed excitement on hearing the news.

“The ‘Texas Miracle’ continues to ring true as more and more companies find the pro-business atmosphere a healthy base for their manufacturing and distribution operations,” Price said in a news release.

Calling the company’s Fort Worth move “an easy decision” was Kenney Richardson, NiteSite’s sales and marketing director.

“Establishing a presence in Fort Worth was an easy decision for us,” Richardson said.

“In addition to the deep-rooted hunting culture, Fort Worth offers unparalleled, value-added amenities, including favorable tax and legislative environments, low cost of living, high quality of life and ample distribution avenues and opportunities that will help drive our continued growth in the U.S.,” Richardson said.

Founded in 2011, NiteSite provides customers with technology and products to convert existing day scopes into night-vision systems. NiteSite currently offers three different models with various accessories.
