Sellier & Bellot is one of the world's oldest manufacturing companies and one of the world's foremost ammunition makers. Originally led by French businessmen Louis Sellier and Jean Bellot, the company spent much of its early history from 1825 to 1870 filling contracts for percussion caps from the Austrian Empire. In 1870 the company began producing ammunition in earnest and quickly ramped up annual production to over 10 million cartridges by the end of the decade. After World War I and the fall of Austria-Hungary, the company turned to serving the new Czechoslovak military and police forces and landed export contracts in Asia and South America. In 1936, Sellier moved from its original facility in Prague to Vlasim, where it remains today.
After a period of control by the post-WWII Soviet-backed authorities, the company once again became a private enterprise in 1992. Today, Sellier exports about 70% of its production to over 70 countries worldwide, a testament to the competitive quality of its products.
