Recently, Fiocchi has announced the acquisition of Italian ammo manufacturer Baschieri & Pellagri. The Italian company is known for making premium shotgun ammunition for hunting and competitive shooting. Baschieri & Pellagri has a rich history and background in the firearm industry. The company has been in the business of making ammunition since 1885.
After the acquisition and merger is complete Fiocchi will be worth about $200 million Euro ($234 million USD) with over 800 employees internationally. The addition of Baschieri & Pellagri gives Fiocchi 4 ammunition manufacturing facilities in two continents. Two in North America and two in Europe.
Below is the press release from Fiocchi regarding the acquisition of Baschieri & Pellagri.
Fiocchi — a global leader in defensive, target, and hunting ammunition with manufacturing facilities in Lecco, Italy, and Ozark, Missouri, USA — is pleased to announce the acquisition of premium shotgun ammunition manufacturer Baschieri & Pellagri.
Baschieri & Pellagri is known throughout Europe and the U.S. for its ultra-premium shotshells and technologically advanced components, including powders, wads, and the innovative “Gordon case,” developed to significantly reduce recoil in hunting and competition shotgun applications. Established in Bologna, Italy, in 1885, Baschieri & Pellagri, as with Fiocchi, combines a rich heritage and Old-World craftsmanship tradition with focused R&D and technological innovation that delivers the highest-quality ammunition on the market today.
Fiocchi’s acquisition of Baschieri & Pellagri presents significant opportunities for vertical integration across the respective brands as both entities communicate insight, manufacturing expertise, and merge their specialized component technologies. This union is anticipated to significantly expand the production capabilities and diversify the product offerings across the Fiocchi and Baschieri & Pellagri portfolios while delivering to hunting and shooting sports consumers the quality and performance they’ve come to expect from these global ammunition leaders.
With this incorporation of Baschieri & Pellagri, Fiocchi will have four manufacturing plants located on two continents: the historical manufacturing plant of Fiocchi in Lecco, the Baschieri & Pellagri operation in Marano di Castenaso, the state-of-the-art production facility in Ozark, Missouri and the recently acquired Little Rock, Arkansas facility.
