Česká zbrojovka Open Plant in Slovakia

    Defense News reports that CZ has partnered with Sitno Holding to open a firearms manufacturing facility in Slovakia.

    Czech firearms manufacturer Ceska zbrojovka and Slovakia’s multi-industry manufacturer, Sitno Holding, have announced plans to open a new firearms plant in Kremnicke Bane, Slovakia, reported local newspaper SME.

    The production facility will make a wide range of weapons and will supply the Slovak armed forces. One of the plant’s main products is to be a semiautomatic 9mm pistol, the CZ 75 P-07 Duty.

    “This investment could spur the development of high-quality defense production in Slovakia,” said Ludovit Cernak, CEO of Sitno Holding.

    CZ is located in Uherský Brod, just inside the Czech side of the Czech Republic / Slovakian border, two and a half hours drive from Kremnicke Bane, Slovakia.
