Krupp Steel

Krupp Laufstahl - Krupp BarrelSteel

Krupp - The pre-eminent family-owned steelmaking company founded in Essen, Germany around 1587 as a blacksmith shop, manufacturers since of every manner of heavy industrial production, but particularly noted for firearms barrelmaking and cannon production, aided in its continuity until 1968 by a German law exempting the family from inheritance tax. The Krupp name may appear on guns with no other maker's name. But, that will not indicate them as the gunmaker; only the barrel tube maker.
