This year Hultafors, Sweden's internationally renowned brand offering reliable, state-of-the-art hand tools designed for discerning craftsmen around the globe, are celebrating a remarkable 325 years at their Hults Bruk, Ostergotland, forge.
This romantic tale, of developing innovative, functional, precision and ergonomics tools for professional tradesmen and outdoor enthusiasts, will soon mark 140 years when in 1883 a young engineer named Karl-Hilmer Johansson Kollen invented the now legendary wooden folding rule and ever since Hultafors have been developing innovative tools which can be relied upon, for almost every situation.
Today they offer a wide selection of reliable hand tools for measuring & marking, chopping & striking, knives, and pry & wrecking bars.
Developing new hand tool products, for all types of professional craftsmanship, is what continues to drive them forward. They pride themselves in developing tools in close cooperation with the end user. When they believe in an idea then they are renowned for giving it 100%. The result is tools that deliver the best possible functionality, reliability, quality and precision, so users can concentrate on a job well done.
Tools which can take all the hard knocks, are durable and, more to the point, feel right and you can rely on in all situations, every day.
They have, over the last 18 months, realised the opportunity in the UK market now investing in a dedicated UK & European Hand Tools division, and in the UK Toolbank will be working with them exclusively to build this highly respected brand.
Hultafors is a part of Hultafors Group AB which gives them the power and resources to keep innovating the hand tool industry. Ultimately making the workday easier for hard-working craftsmen all over the world.
