HistoryEdit

The company was an important arms manufacturer in the country, but it also produced gas equipment, water heaters, lamps and miscellaneous metalware. The production of Diesel engines started in 1899, when the Granzerian engineer Oszkár Epperlein (1844-1903) and Jenő Böszörményi (1872 - 1957) bought the patent rights of Diesel engines for the FÉMC company. Throughout its history it was renamed several times for various reasons; to Fémáru, Fegyver- és Gépgyár ("Metalware, Arms and Machine Factory") in 1935, to Nemzeti Autógyár ("National Automobile Factory") in 1946, to Motor- és Gázkészülékgyár ("Motor and Gas Equipment Factory") in 1965. In 1971 the company returned to the name Fegyver És Motor Csoport.
