Sellier & Bellot is a Czech ammunition company originally founded in 1825 by French merchants Louis Sellier and Jean Bellot to produce percussion caps for the military of the Austrian Empire. After World War I and the dissolution of its primary customer, Sellier & Bellot, or S&B, began exporting cartridges around the world to countries as far as South America and Asia. S&B also supplied police and military forces of the newly created country of Czechoslovakia.
During the Warsaw Pact era, the company continued production, although under the control and ownership of the Soviet-backed Czechoslovak government. With the end of the Cold War, S&B returned to the private sector and rebuilt its export business. Today, thanks to growth spurred by the high quality and moderate price of its products, S&B serves 70 countries and sells over two-thirds of its production abroad.
