WALTHER UMAREX DUCK TARGET PELLET TRAP
Founded in 1886 in Zella-Mehlis, Thuringia, the Carl Walther company today is known for large-caliber pistols used by police and other law enforcement authorities. Additionally, it makes high-quality sporting weapons. In both of these areas it can look back on a tradition of excellent gunmaking going back now 130 years. Legendary handguns bearing the famous WALTHER ribbon logo include the Walther PPK (favored by Agent 007 James Bond), the P.38/P1 pistol of the German army and the well-known P99 and PPQ, all of which have large fan communities throughout the world. In 1993 the company was acquired by the UMAREX Group, which is based in Arnsberg, Germany. Carl Walther manufactures most of its weapons in the factory which it established in 2005 in Ulm, and it has its headquarters together with its parent company Umarex in Arnsberg. A U.S. subsidiary, Walther Arms, was founded in Fort Smith, Arkansas, in 2013.
The first steps led to the first big success: Umarex developed a line of guns with powerful appeal to 10 million recreational shooters. These blank firing guns and airguns could be freely purchased over the counter. That was a key advantage, because Germany’s new weapons act, passed in 1972, required a permit for the purchase of lethal weapons.
Meeting the demand for over-the-counter guns-
Meeting this demand was no easy task. In fact, it seemed almost impossible, because Umarex, at that time still called Mayer & Riem, manufactured only one gun. It was the Perfecta Model G1,
a blank firing pistol.
Wulf-Heinz Pflaumer, who joined Umarex in 1972, pressed forward with the expansion of the product range. Together with Franz Wonisch and Karl Mayer Senior he applied what he had learned at the mailorder company Neckermann: give the customers what they want.
The words of Franz Kafka describe what makes Umarex special: the courage to move ahead. The company’s motto “Looking forward” takes up this theme. New paths present themselves only to those who have their eyes on the future.
Ever since its establishment in 1972, Umarex has been pushing towards new horizons. Its founders, Wulf-Heinz Pflaumer and Franz Wonisch, had a strong entrepreneurial spirit and set themselves ambitious goals. Together with more than 850 dedicated employees and partners in Germany and abroad, they achieved their objectives.
Today the company is managed by the second generation of managing partners, Eyck Pflaumer and Martin Wonisch.
