Manroy is now FNH UK

01 September 2017

(Herstal, Belgium) September 1, 2017. Three years after its acquisition by Belgium-based, small arms manufacturer FN Herstal, Manroy Engineering announces rebranding and name change to FNH UK.

Since its acquisition by FN Herstal, Manroy Engineering has followed a carefully planned program of integration within the Herstal Group. This has included product alignment with FN Herstal, a significant investment program to modernize the UK production facilities, and also a wider product offering to better serve our customer base. More recently, as an important part of its integration process, the UK business has undergone comprehensive rebranding, culminating in adopting its new name.

Glyn Bottomley, FNH UK CEO says: Manroy Engineering was originally formed in 1975 and has been a supplier of weapon parts and weapons to the UK MOD throughout. Our sustained support will remain unchanged. Since its acquisition Manroy, now FNH UK, has undergone a huge level of transformation in the areas of manufacturing and capacity along with an increased level of sustainability and capability. This exciting new stage in the evolution of the company will complete the corporate integration of the business within FN Herstal and enable FNH UK to offer the UK market the full range of products from the FN Herstal portfolio, which includes FN SCAR® assault rifles, FN MINIMI® Mk3 light machine guns, and airborne, land and sea weapon systems.


FNH UK Ltd (formerly Manroy Engineering) is the UK-based subsidiary of FN Herstal, a global leader in the design, development and manufacture of state-of-the-art, groundbreaking solutions developed around small caliber firearms and ammunition for Defense and Security markets.

Headquartered in Sandhurst, Berkshire, with manufacturing operations in Slade Green (Kent), FNH UK is committed to providing its customer base with a wide range of high-grade products and support services under the FN brand name.

The FN portfolio includes portable firearms, less lethal systems, integrated weapon systems for air, land and sea applications, remote weapon stations and associated products and services.
