In the late 1960s, two shooters from Karlstad, Sweden produced the first prototype of traps. Right from the start, the manufacturers had quality and dependability as the starting point for the models that emerged. In the early 1980s, more models of rotary magazine throwers were developed, as well as a patented pigeon lift that puts the pigeon in a very gentle manner. In the middle of the 1980s, the business was moved to Storfors, where it delivered qualitative, functional and reliable traps to an international market. Since October 2018, the business has returned to Karlstad, where Beomat’s history once started.
Customers and users are hunters, recreational shooters, sports shooters and competition shooters where Beomat’s reliability and low maintenance costs are really valued. Many of the traps throw more than ½ million targets a year. We receive continuous feedback from satisfied shooters who have had their traps for more than 30 years. In recent years, we have seen a clear trend, that sales of lighter machines with 12 volt operation have increased. The area of use is preferably sports tracks, conference facilities, hunting teams and private persons.
The development of traps is carried out continuously in close cooperation with shooters and manufacturers of clay targets. The starting point for us remains: Quality and Dependability. The product range today consists of a variety of models from Skeet, Trap to all kind of sports shooting. The company’s spare parts warehouse is extensive and contains a lot of parts also to the traps that were manufactured 25-30 years ago. An important part of our business today is taking care of old traps, renovate them and sell them to a new satisfied costumer
Sales and manufacturing are in Karlstad. In the larger export markets, eg the USA or Germany, sales are made with help from distributors.
The Beomat brand is today owned by Mi54 AB.
