History Our first products consisted in primers loaded in cardboard covers, start-up charges for diesel engines and glow paper and the Raikka stone bombs. In the 1950 the production of electric explosion primers was started. For two decades, the activities were centred on the production of electric primers, and the machine shop was expanded. In the 1970 production of practice equipment and primers for sappers in the armed forces was started. In the year 1978, the production of electric primers stopped, and the needs of the armed forces became the focal point by expanding heavily this range of products in the. Development in primer and counterweight armament products was strong.
