Göran Fredrik Göransson founded Högbo Stål and Jernwerks AB in Sweden in 1862 to produce the highest quality steel, pioneering the Bessemer process and unknowingly laying the groundwork for the company’s first saw blade.
1886 - Göran used the high quality steel, previously moulded to make fish hooks, to begin the production of Bahco first saw blades. To communicate their quality, every blade carried the Fish and Hook trademark.
In 1916 Berndt August Hjorth bought Enköpings Mekaniska Verkstad in its entirety from Johan Petter Johansson - it shortened its name to become known as Bahco.
Fifty years later the introduction of the bi-metal hacksaw blade Sandflex® heralded a new era in metal-cutting blade technology.
In 1982 Bahco presented the world's first ergonomic screwdriver. Bahco's ERGO™ tools go on to win many international awards.
Nowadays SNA Europe (the company behind Bahco) design and manufacture tools and saws tailored to the most demanding professionals, focussing their design highly on innovation, performance and ergonomics. As innovators for over 165 years, the company have introduced the most advanced tools in the world, and sell through distributors who they build long-term partnerships with. Bahco products are overwhelmingly manufactured in SNA own factories located across Europe and offered by the partner distributors to the professionals.
