Company's Description
Sako is the world's most prestigious rifle and cartridge brand with its globally renowned brands of Sako and Tikka rifles and cartridges. Sako's history began when the company was founded in the early 1920s. Sako has come a long way from its early hand manufacture to today's computer aided R&D and CNC manufacturing. Nevertheless, the value of the traditional gunsmith craftsmanship has not been forgotten.
For decades Sako has developed world-class military, target and hunting rifles, as well as centerfire cartridges. Sako makes more than 100 different loads in 35 popular calibers for different targets and hunting purposes. Making both rifles and cartridges is a matter of pride for Sako. By integrating its knowledge of both the rifle and cartridge production, Sako and Tikka brands can offer a shooter the unique advantages of uncompromising accuracy and reliability.
At the turn of the millennium, Sako was honored to become a member of the Italian Beretta Group, which gave access to new and advanced production methods enabling Sako to continuously refine its products development. Alongside Beretta and its unique firearms traditions that reach all the way to the year 1526, Sako looks ahead more confidently than ever.
Sako's main fields of operation include the design, production, marketing and global sales to more than 50 countries. In Finland Sako is the leading importer and wholesale merchant in the field. Sako processes comply with numerous quality systems, including ISO 9001:2008, AQAP 2110 and ISO 14001:2004.
