When Austrian engineer, Gaston Glock, started his business in 1963 nobody imagined the success of this small Austrian company

Production in the Ferlach factory, located in the southern region of Austria, started in 1987. Its continued expansion over the years, has led to the housing of the most advanced metallurgical technologies for handgun manufacturing.

In order to fulfil increasing demands and follow regional diversity another site was added in Bratislava, Slovakia. Being at a short distance from the factory in Deutsch-Wagram a close cooperation between these two facilities was set as a standard.

GLOCK, Inc. was founded in Smyrna, Georgia in 1986 as the first subsidiary of GLOCK Ges.m.b.H. This facility began full production operations in 2013 and follows same production standards and procedures as the facilities in Austria.
