Carl Walther

WALTHER products are used by the police, armed forces and other public authorities. Hunters and sportsmen have a high regard for our sophisticated rifles and handguns. No wonder weapons collectors prefer WALTHER firearms to any other kind.

The WALTHER family-owned company celebrated its 100th anniversary in 1986. In 1993, it joined the UMAREX Group, whose roots – strictly speaking – are anchored in WALTHER as well, namely with the aforementioned Walter Riem and his Perfecta pistol. It formed the “seed capital” for establishing the company Mayer & Riem in Arnsberg, which became UMAREX several years later.

With fresh ideas and significant investments, Wulf-Heinz Pflaumer and Franz Wonisch led UMAREX to build successful collaboration with WALTHER. The two "full-blooded entrepreneurs" impressed the WALTHER employees with their enormous technical knowledge and passion for hunting. Here, weapons enthusiasts talked with weapons enthusiasts; that was the most important prerequisite for success. Wulf-Heinz Pflaumer and Franz Wonisch have been able to maintain and at the same time renew the WALTHER tradition.

The two UMAREX managers had already proven how to lead a company to be the best in the world. Their "royal idea" of replicas made UMAREX the world leader in this type of over-the-counter weapons, and it grew to become the largest air rifle importer in the world.

To maintain the particular quality of the collaboration for the future as well is very important for Wulf-Heinz Pflaumer and Franz Wonisch. They have set their course. During their active years, they are handing down their know-how, experience, and infallible feel for trends and topics to their sons, who are intended to succeed them in the future.
