The city of Eskilstuna was the center of the hardware industry in Sweden. Eskilstuna known for its metal working since the second half of the 17th century. As early as in the 18th century, standard fittings were produced and sold throughout Sweden. The hand forging was industrialized from the middle of the 19th century and a number of small metal factories were set up for the mechanical production of different types of builder’s hardware.
Eskilstuna Kulturbeslag AB,
however, wants to carry on the old traditions of Eskilstuna as an iron manufacturing town. We therefore continue, where many of our predecessors ended. Using their models, we are now producing the well-known fittings. We produce the fittings as they looked in the old days. Our assortment dates back to 1700 and ends around 1960. This means that we market hand forged fittings and produce factory-made products.
