Introducing Armex

Armex is proud to be the wholesaler for many prestigious brands of field sports-related equipment in the UK. We export our own brands in the UK and throughout Europe and this is expanding. Our vision is to build on our international reputation by continuing to push the boundaries and to always put our customers first. We will strive to source the latest and the best products and to design and produce the very best range of accessories.

Armex Custom Shop grew in 2017, with machines and laser etching capabilities and in May we purchased an established West Midlands based engineering company, fully equipped with CNC lathes, drilling, milling and profiling machinery, surface grinding, lathes and metal finishing equipment along with fully qualified and experienced Tool Makers/Engineers and CNC operators. It is a complete takeover by Armex of an existing, profitable well known and respected engineering company with full order books, who are currently supplying the aerospace industry, nuclear industry, medical sector, oil industry, and general engineering. Armex will add its portfolio of defence industry products, Police and Military products and we will develop a range of state of the art moderators for full bore and airguns, adaptors, tuning kits, and custom parts. Our focus will be on producing ultra high-quality products and we will also welcome bespoke work.

The existing owner stated that he is delighted along with other Directors, Management and employees about the wholesale takeover of the Company. Having worked with Armex for almost ten years, we have seen and experienced the growth of Armex and the level of business with Armex has increased massively; year on year, we haven’t looked back since then……


A brief history of our company

Armex has grown rapidly since the owner Mr. Alan Phelps set up a company called The Armoury in 1999. We are now the UK’s leading supplier for the field sports and outdoor leisure industry and are known industry-wide for innovation, quality products, servicing and repairs and customer service.

A year after setting up The Armoury Alan’s business boomed. His new team designed and produced engineered shooting accessories such as silencers for most major UK producers. He had the biggest customer base in the gun trade for archery and exhibited at the Tackle and Gun show and IWA in his own right, gaining an international reputation for the Armex brand and the quality of its products. He employed a gunsmith and added more staff, including a designer and an engineer.

Then two years later, he approached Umarex suggesting he took 50% of the UK distribution, within a year, Armex had taken 100% of the business, thanks to the massive sales success that was driven by Alan’s strong leadership. Since then Armex has increased the sales and exposure of their brands exponentially and nurtured them through to the recognized success they are today.

Armex moved to Field Sports House in Andover Street, Birmingham 12 years ago and now occupies over 34,000 square feet.

Today, Armex continues to grow, to develop and innovate. We are proud of our strong relationships and work to support the dealers, the customers and the trade as a whole.
