100 Anniversary

Building the Future


During the last 100 years, quality has become a true Sako trademark. We have come a long way from the early days of craftsmanship to today’s computer aided design and manufacturing, but we have never forgotten the basics. We utilize the highest technology and the latest innovations, but we still carry out certain critical steps by hand. We demand perfection, especially from ourselves.

Finnish Roots

Remembering your roots is more important than anything. We are keenly aware that we are a product of our environment, shaped by the harsh conditions of the north. It has molded our ways of thinking, designing, and manufacturing – it has molded us. We are proud to produce high-quality products designed and manufactured in Finland, but also to represent the ancient Finnish hunting culture.

Uncompromised quality

During the last 100 years, quality has become a true Sako trademark. We have come a long way from the early days of craftsmanship to today’s computer aided design and manufacturing, but we have never forgotten the basics. We utilize the highest technology and latest innovations, but we still carry out certain critical steps by hand. We demand perfection, especially from ourselves.

MADE BY HUNTERS

We are all hunters: from machinists to test shooters, quality inspectors to HR coordinators. Every Sako product is made by us. We live and breathe the lifestyle, always looking for ways to improve. Our reputation of manufacturing high quality products is rooted in the unique skills of our employees. We believe that if you want excellence in every detail, every single person matters.
