DENIX, we are manufacturers of antique weapon replicas for collectors since 1966

Our history

Our company DENIX, located in Ciutadella de Menorca, started its activity in 1967. For more than half a century, the founding partners, José Carretero Febrer and Sebastián Llull Salom, took the initiative to manufacture high quality historical replica weapons. His experience and knowledge in imitation jewelry, a traditional sector in Menorca (Balearic Islands, Spain) were the origin of everything. Without his tenacity and illusion, it would not have been possible to grow his initial idea.

These values that survive today in the management of DENIX. And that the second family generation recognizes as signs of identity that allow us to compete in a highly mature and globalized sector.

It was in 1978 and coinciding with the transformation of DENIX into a limited company, when the production moves to the new factory built in the industrial area of Ciutadella de Menorca. One more step in the consolidation of DENIX, which preceded years of continuous growth and diversification. Expanding our catalog of historical weapon replicas, while DENIX reached new countries to more than 40 countries around the world.

Humbly, we consider ourselves a global brand.

We know that each project has moments of crisis. And DENIX was not the exception. In 2005, a great fire devastated most of the facilities of our factory. A tragic accident that allowed us to test the strength, strength and adaptability of our brand and its human team. In the face of adversity, we were able to return to normality in only 2 months after the incident. With the commitment of service that has always characterized us: not leaving our distributors without supply at any time.

At present, DENIX is defined as a familiar business, financially consolidated, with a flexible production structure, with growth capacity and with a clear exporting vocation and being the European leader in its category.
