We have strong roots. Since 1906.
It all started in 1906. Back then Valdemar Jensen established a small, local blacksmith on the small island ”Tåsinge” in Denmark. The blacksmith later developed into a tool manufacturer achieving great success with the invention of the one-hand operated locking clamp – later known worldwide as the popular blue SCANGRIP-pliers.
Anders Borring acquired the company in 1993. Over a period, he had been looking into the challenges that modern automotive workshops were facing. He noticed that mechanics were using traditional cabled fluorescent lamps. The technology was outdated, the solutions were fragile, and the mechanics were struggling to get the optimal work light. “There is room for improvement”, he thought.
With a passion and fascination for LED lighting and its possibilities, he saw a need for more flexible and user-friendly work light solutions. When SCANGRIP introduced its first LED work light for the professional market, it was a decision that led to a remarkable growth and today, SCANGRIP is Europe’s leading manufacturer of LED work lights for professionals.
In 2021, SCANGRIP became a part of Hultafors Group - a global company offering a unique portfolio of premium brands within personal protection, tools, and other equipment for discerning craftsmen. Just like SCANGRIP, Hultafors has a long history of innovation and high-quality products for example the iconic folding rule.
