Bessey - Simply Better!

Tradition – Experience – Innovation

BESSEY Tool GmbH Co. KG can look back over more than 125 years of history. 

Founded as a bright steel drawing plant in 1889, the company has continuously expanded the range of products it offers. It was this spirit that led BESSEY to begin production of manual clamping tools in the mid-1930s.

Since then, the strength of its innovation has been underlined by the granting of numerous patents, for instance in 1936 for its malleable cast iron screw clamp, and in 2009 for the optimised all-steel rail profile. In 1979, with the takeover of Diener Werkzeugfabrik GmbH, a company rich in tradition, BESSEY established its cutting technology unit with the already popular Erdi snips.

Today, with some 1200 products, BESSEY is among the largest clamping and cutting tool manufacturers in the world, with a presence in over 100 countries.
