In 2002 a pioneering entrepreneur who retired from MKE and his ambitious mechanical engineer son embarked on a journey to transform the ammunition production landscape. While manufacturing and marketing hunting ammunition components, the latter noticed the demand and the gap in small arms ammunition industry.

The company has diligently cultivated a team of skilled engineers and technicians who possess a deep understanding of ammunition manufacturing processes. This expertise has led Ateşçi to engage in research and development (R&D) and educational activities to share its knowledge in ammunition production at an international level and become a global authority.
