CYBERGUN GROUP, the leader of Airsoft, is expanding on the American market.
CYBERGUN GROUP is the world leader in firearms replica under license. Started in 1983 on the scale models market, our company gradually evolved into Airsoft, managing to secure 20 exclusive prestigious licenses. We have been working for more than 20 years with renowned actors such as Colt, FN Herstal, Glock or Kalashnikov to deliver ever more efficient and realistic products to the mass market. We are present on 3 continents through our offices in Tokyo, Hong Kong, Dallas, Minneapolis, Madrid, Milan, Aarhus, and Suresnes.
The first decade of the 2000s was a boom for the company which prospered. By recruiting a former gunsmith of the French Gendarmerie, Cybergun started a small R&D divided which largely contributed in shaping today’s airsoft industry. Unfortunately, following a series of strategic mistakes she finds herself in difficulty in the early 2010s.
Restarted Investment, led by Claude Solarz and Hugo Brugière took control of Cybergun in January 2015. After a heavy restructuring phase, Hugo Brugière is appointed CEO of the company in December 2015. Under the leadership of this new management, major projects are started. Initially distributor, we have been preparing for two years a new CYBERGUN GROUP, focusing on the effectiveness of a strengthened R&D fueling new business opportunities offered by the direct distribution and the defense sector.
At the end of 2015 we created SPARTAN MILITARY & LAW ENFORCEMENT, an internal division dedicated to the training of the armed forces and Police. Directed by General (Ret.) Emmanuel Maurin, SPARTAN M & LE recently signed its first significant contract in late 2017 with The French Gendarmerie for special designed training replicas. A recent new recruit, of General (Ret.) Jacques Aragones will help us promote our offer outside of Europe and, more particularly, in the USA.
At the end of 2017 we announced the acquisition of several French websites specialized in airsoft as well as several shops. Their integration marks the first step of an ambitious strategy that we will deploy over the next couple of years.
CYBERGUN GROUP is a proud sponsor of the Yiddish King Lear, a theater production which will take place in New York at the Orensanz Foundation on January 30th and February 1st 2018.
