It all started back in 1889 with a talented team of entrepreneurs. Today, the Herstal Group people still share the same culture of innovation, quality and customer excellence as from the very start. On the eve of the group's 125th anniversary, the Herstal Group and its people look forward to continuing this tradition.

Celebrating 125 years and leading the way into the future

Tracing its origins back to 1889 in Herstal, Belgium, the Herstal Group has made its name creating the finest firearms in the world. Through its famous brands, FN Herstal, Browning and Winchester Firearms (*), the Herstal Group has achieved a position among the worldwide leaders in its fields of activity: Defence / Law Enforcement, and Hunting / Shooting.

2014 celebrates 125 years of designing, manufacturing and commercialising top-quality products that represent the very best in technical innovation and know-how with one goal in mind: exceeding the ever-evolving expectations of customers and partners.

This well-established tradition is also the Herstal Group's commitment to the future

The Herstal Group has released a special logo to commemorate its 125th jubilee and support the events that will take place during 2014. This logo symbolizes a 125-year long history and pays tribute to those talented people who have contributed to the success of the Group over the years. It also represents a future being built together. Designed around the Herstal Group's existing logo, the anniversary logo shows the two parts forming the ellipse in a forceful movement; the first takes its roots in tradition while the second leads the way forward.
