ZVS holding, a.s. is a company founded in 1937 and dealing with development, production and sale in area of mechanical engineering, electrotechnics and special production focusing on large calibre and middle calibre ammunition. New field is production of small calibre ammunition for handguns, shotguns and development of pistols.
The company has a long-term tradition – the production was established in a newly built factory in the territory of Dubnica in 1937 as a part of concern Skoda Plzen. Except ammunition production and rockets, machine production was orientated on production of special tools and single-purpose machines was developed. Later on, range of products was enlarged by production of transformers for consumer and industrial electronics, electronics for control systems of machines, measuring and pumping technology, civil pyrotechnics, production of air guns and production of toner cartridges for printers for an American company Lexmark.
Later started production of 9mm Luger and shotgun ammunition. The range of small calibre ammunition is gradually expanding. The philosophy of company is to eventually start production of ammunition in all common used calibres for pistols, rifles and sub-machine guns.
Current leading development project is focusing on pistols intended especially for law-enforcement untis. At IWA 2013 we will be presenting the compact sized pistol in calibre 9x19 and .40SW. It will be the first public introduction in such international scale.
