The Suhler company was founded by Prussian gunfabrik commissar Carl Gottlieb Haenel in 1840. Since the 16th century, firearms have been produced here, at the gateway to the Thuringian Forest. CG Haenel is thus one of the centuries-long tradition of riflemen, And industrial enterprises of the region. The historical brand CG Haenel represented technologically superior weapon systems mainly for the military, which were closely linked to the designs of the weapon designer Hugo Schmeisser . Many automatic and fully automated weapons were made by CG Haenel and Schmeisser, who was the co-owner of the company. The developments of Schmeisser at CG Haenel also include the machine karabiner 44, the first storm gun in the world.
Over the GDR years and up to today are manufactured in Suhl weapons under the quality label CG Haenel - since 2008 again as an independent enterprise. The company is now part of the Merkel Group, which in turn belongs to Tawazun Holding (UAE).
