“A-TEC is a highly innovative manufacturer of silencers for short and long guns, which has the same quality standards as Heckler & Koch and at the same time serves an identical target group. H&K and A-TEC have worked together on some projects for a while now and have decided to lift the relationship to the next level with this agreement”, explains Anders E. Johan-sen, COB and founder of A-TEC.

“Through this cooperation, we are able to supply police officers and soldiers with a system that optimally matches his needs. We are very much looking forward to working with the most important handgun manufacturer in the EU and NATO and are convinced that we can provide our customers with visible added value,” confirms Hallvard Winterseth, CEO of A-TEC.

Dr. Jens Bodo Koch, CEO of Heckler & Koch GmbH explains: “We are very pleased to have found a cooperation partner in A-TEC who not only meets the high-quality level demanded by Heckler & Koch, but also lives for his products. In addition, there is promising synergy potential. Heckler & Koch is a system provider of small arms for security agencies and armed forces of EU, NATO, and NATO-equivalent countries. Through the cooperation with A-TEC, we are strengthening our product portfolio for the benefit of our customers.

Marco Geißinger Vice President Sales & Marketing of Heckler & Koch GmbH emphasizes “Joint developments and a common qualification process of both companies ensure that our customers can rely on highly reliable weapon-silencer systems.

It is unclear if we will see how this relationship plays out in America. It would be interesting to see if this is A-Tex’s way to break into the U.S. Market but, only time will tell.
