It started with a local smithy in 1925….
Genuine quality over generations
The origins of today’s modern manufacturing company was a local blacksmith, established in 1925 and located in a courtyard house in the center of Helsingborg. Description of working conditions and operations as it looked around 1935:
“An average hourly wage for forging people who had been working in the profession for at least 6 years was 1,30 SEK. A new employee with no work experience, 14-15 years old, had a salary of about 30 cents/hour. Weekly working time was 48 hours. The work started 07.00 am and lasted until 17:00 with a break for 15 minutes for breakfast and 1 hour and 15 minutes for dinner. Saturdays from 07.00 to 12.00. Unpaid annual leave proceeded with four days each year ….
“There was good fellowship between workers and business owner. The workers lived in the southern part of Helsingborg and traveled to and from work by bicycle. Incoming orders were made after verbal instructions from the customer or simple sketches on scraps of paper. Sheet metal hood over the furnace was used for simple memos written in chalk. Working drawings were infrequent, except in the case of decorative works such as gates or other ornamental ironwork.”
