The path to your own production

Since the end of 2019, we have taken a significant step towards sustainability and quality control. In previous years, we sourced our bushcraft products, such as fire steels, from the Far East. However, after extensive consideration, we decided to relocate the entire production to Germany, or more precisely, to Remscheid.

We have established a modern production facility in Remscheid, equipped with state-of-the-art CNC lathes and milling machines, lathes and laser systems. This technological equipment not only enables us to produce products of the highest quality, but also to do so extremely efficiently and promptly. This decision allows us to respond more flexibly to the needs of our customers while maintaining the high quality standards that characterise our brand.

To create even more transparency, we would like to emphasise that we source all the ingredients for our products in Germany. One example of this is our pine shavings, which come from the Black Forest. We use around 500 kg of this high-quality material every month. We also source our paracord from a renowned manufacturer in Germany, who produces it here locally. The only thing that does not come from Germany is our pure magnesium steel, which we source from Austria. Our axe is manufactured in Baden-Württemberg and the spruce wood for our fire steel handles comes from German forests. These conscious decisions allow us to support local industries and ensure that every component of our products meets the highest quality standards.

However, we would also like to emphasise that in the case of explicit production orders from customers that cannot be covered by our suppliers or where the budget is limited, we will source goods from other countries at the customer's request. We are always transparent and open to individual customer requirements.

In addition to this further development, we are pleased to announce that our team now comprises seven dedicated employees. Together, we are committed to producing first-class products with expertise and dedication.

Another milestone is our production for other renowned customers. This step contributes to the fact that fewer and fewer products in our industry are being sourced from the Far East. We see this not only as a positive development, but also as a confirmation of our commitment to local production and European craftsmanship.

Thank you for your trust in Survival Stuff - quality that is created with conviction and professionalism.
