For more than a century now, ammunition products have been manufactured at the Fürth-Stadeln RUAG Ammotec GmbH factory. The company has had a lively history.
In 1855, Heinrich Utendoerffer received permission to set up a laboratory for the production of propellants. In 1889 Utendoerffer then sold his company, which was then still located in Nuremberg, in 1889 to the “Rheinisch Westfälische Sprengstoff-Actien-Gesellschaft” (RWS) founded in 1886 in Troisdorf. After there were repeated problems in Nuremberg with regards to concession allocations, the factory was moved in 1896 to today’s Fürth district of Stadeln. In 1971, the shot cartridge production, founded in Rottweil am Neckar and located for decades in Karlsruhe-Durlach, was moved to Fürth-Stadeln. Since then, Rottweil shot cartridges for hunting and sport have been produced here together with another wide range of products with “explosive characters”. Production is carefully monitored so that you can shoot successfully and safely.
