November 2019, Wetzlar. The well-known manufacturer of sport optics MINOX will change its headquarters as of 1 February 2020 to Isny (Allgäu) where the Blaser Group has already its headquarters. MINOX has been part of the Blaser Group since 2013.


The Blaser Group is one of the worldwide leaders in the hunting and outdoor industry with brands such as Blaser, Mauser, Sauer & Sohn, and Rigby; as well as the company Blaser Group Wetzlar in its portfolio.


The grouping of competences on one site allows for a more intensive exchange of ideas between the optics specialists and hunting gun experts at Mauser and Sauer & Sohn; and create altogether new synergies from which customers will profit.


New products will be developed faster and even more custom-fitted to the demands of the customers. For the CEO of MINOX, Wolfgang Venzl, this is a further step in the right direction:


“It is important for me, to continue the change which I launched with my start at MINOX in January 2019. With the change of headquarters we are perfectly prepared to continue the successful development of our product portfolio.”


The manufacturer of the Blaser sport optics, Blaser Group Wetzlar, however, will continue to develop and produce sport optics in Wetzlar.
