The story of IWI begins in 1933 when Israel Military Industries (IMI) Ltd. began firearms production in Israel under the British Mandate.
In the late 1950’s, IMI began collaboration with the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) with the goal of developing the most technologically advanced small arms systems based upon the demands of troops fighting in urban areas and harsh environments.
The unique combat conditions experienced by the IDF required a new paradigm in firearms development. The results included the most innovative and legendary firearm brands used by militaries, law enforcement agencies and security personnel around the world.
First the UZI®, then the TAVOR®, X95®, NEGEV®, GALIL ACE® and JERICHO®.
In 2005, the Israeli government decided to spin off and privatize the small arms division of IMI and Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) Ltd. was born.
The joint Research & Development (R&D) team of IWI and the IDF continue to develop small arms based upon the dynamic changes in real-world applications due to the ongoing threat of global terrorism.
The intensive and continuous use of IWI’s product by the IDF and worldwide militaries such as Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Portugal, Thailand, Ukraine, Vietnam and many more.
This enables the company to continue to innovate new products and optimize existing models.
All of our weapon systems are produced and assembled in compliance with the most stringent military (MIL-STD) and ISO 9001.2008 standards.
