Malaysia's first arms production facility was established in 1972. Defence production is largely integrated within the commercial sector as there are few companies solely dedicated to defence production.
Currently there are four local small arms producers:
Munora Holdings and SME Technologies, which produce assault rifles under license from Steyr (Austria);
SME Ordnance, which produces a wide range of ammunition from cartridges for small arms to mortar bombs as well as pyrotechnics; and
Kerambit Industries, which produces shotgun cartridges.
