Rheinmetall shares surge on Leopard exports

By Phil Bainbridge

January 26, 2023 - Germany’s decision to send Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine has pushed shares in the 134-year old arms manufacturer Rheinmetall - already surging since the war began - to a record high.

Rheinmetall was founded in 1839 to supply the German Empire with ammunition, and continued to supply arms to the state through both World Wars, temporarily being nationalised by the Nazi government.

As Germany takes on a more assertive role in its foreign policy, Rheinmetall is well positioned to take advantage with its Leopard taks, Marder and Puma infantry fighting vehicles, Panzerhaubitze self-propelled howitzers, military trucks, air defence systems, and a full range of munitions.
