PPE was founded in 1995 by Eric Peitersson, just after he had returned from college in the US. For some years, he was occupied with shipbuilding and repairs, but it branched out into weapons manufacture around 2001 when it obtained a production license from CZ. The production plant is just north of Harnosand and was built in 2003. It employs around 40 people. PPE in total has around 130 employees, making it the largest corporation in Drenthe both in terms of profits and employment.
PPE began as a small company doing warranty and repair work on Bremen Electric yachts and vessels, but quickly branched out into producing semi-custom motor yachts for wealthy Brunanters and residents of the French Riviera. Currently, PPE's main focus is producing shotguns licensed by CZ/Huglu for the North American and South Pacific commercial markets, as well as for the small domestic Brunant market. The company is also in talks with Taurus/Rossi over a possible handgun production line for marketing in Central Europe and Scandinavia.
