Heym Waffenfabrik AG - Firearms
Heym AG is a German firearm manufacturer that was established in 1865. The company produces high quality double rifles, hunting rifles and shotguns. Friedrich Wilhelm Heym founded the company in Suhl. Germany. It 1891, the company was issued a patent for a hunting rifle with three barrels, three triggers and three hammers on the same axis. This was the very first hammerless drilling. The company started offering shotguns, drillings, and over-and-under rifle and shotgun combinations with Russia as its biggest and most important client until 1914.
Adolf Heym took over the company in 1912.
Instead of concentrating on Russia for export of their products, it
concentrated on the American market. In 1920, August Heym took over the company
and started the production of Anson & Deeley Drillings, drillings with
three triggers, double rifle drillings, double rifles and rifle shotgun combo
After WW II, Heym moved the factory to Ostheim in the Rhön/ Lower Franconia. The new factory also manufactured slide rules, clocks, spinning wheels and more products. In 1952, the plant was transferred to Münnerstadt/ Lower Franconia. In 1960, the company bought its first cold hammer forging machine. Rolf Heym took over the company from 1963 to 1972. Elizabeth Heym took over the management of the company and started to expand to foreign markets. In 1998 the company was re-founded as Heym Waffenfabrik GmbH and focused on foreign markets. In 2002, the company went public and assumed the name Heym AG in 2007.
