Gardone Val Trompia is a hot bed of firearms manufacturing. For more than 500 years, the region has been anchored by firearms giant Beretta. Beretta is an Italian company with its origins in the 1400s and documented work since 1526. Fabbrica d'Armi Pietro Beretta S.p.A. has been passed down through 15 generations of the Beretta family. Thanks to the family's courage, vision and skill, this name brand has earned international status for its high-tech content, performance, and of course, Italian style.
Beretta produces approximately 1,500 weapons a day, covering a wide range of portable weaponry. They are able to do this with a fully automated work centers in the production department, alongside their highly qualified craftsmen. The design department uses advanced systems to calculate pressure using the finite elements method. The weapons are tested in laboratories equipped for research in impulse-dynamics applied to the weapon-ammunition system, metallographic analyses and fatigue tests.
