The main production facility has remained in Vienna, Austria
ever since the company was established. Kahles maintains close relations with the management of Swarovski Optik,
and a constant exchange of information and experience is the reason behind the success of the two brands.
Guntramsdorf, Lower Austria, Austria
In 2012, the company unveiled a new manufacturing facility in the town of Guntramsdorf
in the state of Lower Austria,
and it was designed with a lot of consideration towards environment-friendly factors. The new factory focuses on the production of riflescopes. All Kahles binoculars
(Helia S is an exception and is made in Austria), red dots and rangefinder
are outsourced from Asia.
The factory in Guntramsdorf
is equipped with state-of-the-art technology for the manufacturing of high-end devices. The production floor houses CNC milling and lathe equipment that machine all metallic components from high-quality solid metal blocks. The glass components are for all products are acquired from Swarovski Optik,
which helps in streamlining the production. The atmosphere and temperature in the assembly area are controlled, which prevents unwanted particles from entering the insides of the scope assembly.
After assembly, the scopes are purged with pressurized Nitrogen gas
to prevent contamination from water vapour and dirt particles. All products go through strict quality control inspections to identify defective components and conforming scopes are sent towards the packaging area.
