This is what RUAG Ammotec says about the acquisition of the Hausken brand:
Hausken has achieved significant growth in recent years thanks to its close partnership with RUAG Ammotec and access to its wide distribution network. A takeover is merely the next logical step for RUAG Ammotec. The Hausken and Hausken Lyddemper brands will thus officially become part of RUAG Ammotec's brand portfolio.
RUAG Ammotec is well known as the European market leader for small-calibre ammunition, pyrotechnic elements and components and its position as a strong global sales partner for selected brands. By adding Hausken, RUAG Ammotec is expanding its range in the equipment segment. “The Norwegian company provides high-quality suppressors for hunting and sport shooting in all standard calibres and is highly respected on the European market”, says Klaus Waltermann, Wholesale Sales Manager for Germany at RUAG Ammotec. The RSW Short Rifle and the Norma Silencer line has already demonstrated the profitable synergy between ammunition and suppressors.
Hausken has been synonymous with the manufacture of high-quality suppressors since 1992. Hunters and sport shooters benefit from this long-standing experience. Hausken has a flawless track record of receiving outstanding marks in suppressor tests. The premium brand Hausken has consistently stood for unbeatable damping performance relative to size and weight, and RUAG Ammotec will stick to this winningformula in the future as well. “In RUAG Ammotec, we have found a strong company that shares our quest for perfection, is committed to quality and has enjoyed the trust of hunters and sport shooters for generations. We have stood for these qualities and values for 28 years and can be certain that the traditions of our brand will continue”, says a visibly delighted Clare Hausken after signing the contracts.
The Hausken family will remain in key positions and are looking forward to a successful future with the Ammotec management.
