History of Bahco

Bahco is a Swedish tool manufacturer with quite an intricate history of multiple parts.The story of Bahco began between 1886 and 1891, when Johan Petter Johansson, inventor of nearly 100 patents, developed the pipe wrench and adjustable wrench under his company, Enköpings Mekaniska Verkstad. During this time, in 1889, Berndt August Hjorth, a Swedish businessman, opened a tools and machinery shop in Stockholm called BA Hjorth & Co, which was incorporated as a shareholder company in 1916 and was renamed to Bahco in 1854. In 1890, JP sold his sales and marketing rights to B.A. Hjorth & Company, who agreed to distribute his tools worldwide under the "Bahco" trademark. Over many years following this, the company underwent many acquisitions and changes.
 
During the same era in 1862, Göran Fredrik Göransson, who pioneered the Bessemer process(Sir Henry Bessemer's patented process for steel production) and laid the groundwork for the first saw blade using high quality steel originally used for fish hooks, founded his company Högbo Stål & Jernwerks AB in Sandviken, Sweden. Beginning in the 1860s, the company conducted sales via trading houses in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, the UK, Russia, Germany and France. In 1868 it was reconstructed as Sandvikens Jernverk (Ironworks) AB in and again to Sandvik AB in 1972. In 1914 the company opened its first sales subsidiary in the UK, which marked the beginning of a long expansion as subsidiaries began opening around the world.In 1883, Bahco started developing and manufacturing ergonomic hand tools, a technology which has been scientifically proven to reduce injuries and improve productivity. In 1991, Sandvik AB acquired Bahco Tools and changed its name to Sandvik Bahco. Today, the company has over 7000 hand tools across a wide range of industries.
