The company, which has plants in Zurich and Altdorf in Switzerland, also maintains a test centre at Ochsenboden, equipped with firing ranges and proving grounds as well as the technical infrastructure necessary for testing ammunition, weapons and complete systems.

The RWM Schweiz range of products and services encompasses:
