Discover 135 Years of BESSEY

What sets the BESSEY brand apart is its unique combination of innovative ideas and an unwavering commitment to quality.
Established in 1889 as a bright steel drawing shop, BESSEY has consistently represented high-quality precision steels and cutting-edge tools.


Today, we are proud to mark another milestone in our company history: 135 years characterized by a steadfast commitment to the highest quality and innovative strength. The enduring commitment to the highest quality and innovative strength is evident today in the products and services offered by our two divisions: Precision Steel and Tool.

BESSEY is the inventor of the screw clamp, as the world knows it today. Since the commencement of tool production in the mid-1930s, we have continued the success story that began in 1889 as a bright steel drawing shop. This is proven by the hundreds of patents and even more product innovations. Through our high-quality clamping and cutting tools, BESSEY inspires the way people work. As a united team, we develop solutions that simplify everyday life for tradespeople and result in optimal work outcomes. True to the motto: "BESSEY. Simply better."
