When business entrepreneurs, Friedrich Peyer im Hof, Heinrich Moser, and Conrad Neher opened a wagon factory near the Rhine Falls in Switzerland in 1853, they had no idea that their humble wagon factory would later become known as an international leader in the small arms industry. In response to a challenge from Switzerland’s Federal Ministry of Defense, the Swiss Wagon Factory entered a competition to develop a state-of-the-art rifle, in hopes that the Swiss Army would adopt it. Four years later, they found themselves facing an order for 30,000 of the rifles, changing the name of the company to the Swiss Industrial Company. In German, the name was Schweizerische Industrie-Gesellschaft, later shortened to SIG.
In the 1970’s, SIG’s small arms division expanded to include Hämmerli Target Arms from Lenzburg, Switzerland, and J.P. Sauer & Sohn, GmbH, of Eckernförde, West Germany, known worldwide for their hunting rifles. In the 1980’s, SIG set its sights on the United States of America. With a rich history of German and Swiss influence, the company opened its first American location in Tysons Corner, Virginia, under the name SIGARMS. Two years later, the firearms manufacturer relocated to a larger location in Virginia where the company’s classic handguns (P220®/P230/P225®/ P226®) were imported and assembled. SIGARMS enlarged its footprint on American soil in 1990 by opening new manufacturing facilities in Exeter, New Hampshire. In 2005, SIGARMS changed its name to SIG SAUER, Inc. and continued to expand its market share in the firearms industry.
In 2014, SIG SAUER invested more than $18 million to develop a new corporate headquarters at Pease International Tradeport in Newington, N.H. Encompassing 206,000 square feet, the leading edge manufacturing plant includes quality control testing facilities, a multi-position test-fire range, and a modern workspace designed from the ground up for efficiency. Today, SIG SAUER serves as the second largest employer in the state and is widely recognized as the fastest growing firearms manufacturer in the United States.
Pioneering designs and state-of-the-art manufacturing capabilities are the hallmarks of the company’s past successes, providing the foundation for future growth. SIG SAUER has recently expanded its product line, now offering Elite Performance ammunition, electro-optics, suppressors, and Advanced Sport Pellet (ASP) airguns, earning the company a unique reputation as The Complete Systems Provider™. This total package approach sets SIG apart from other firearms manufacturers, as its diverse and innovative product line and complementary training programs are unmatched in the firearms industry.
SIG SAUER remains committed to hiring the foremost industry experts in all product categories to ensure that all new products live up to the SIG SAUER® name. When it is “MADE BY SIG™”, it boasts the same exacting standards of quality, reliability, and performance that have made SIG SAUER the brand the choice of many of the most elite military, government, and law enforcement units across the globe.Visite: 2.275
