In 1889, Max BESSEY founded the company BESSEY & Sohn in Stuttgart as a bright steel drawing plant. Since then, 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. 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.
In 2004 BESSEY & Sohn was spun into BESSEY Tool, handling the clamping and cutting technology areas, and BESSEY Präzisionsstahl, a leading German producer-independent and industry-independent supplier of high-quality bright and stainless steels. This unique positioning of BESSEY as a producer of tools and precision steels ensures significant advantages in terms of quality. It allows BESSEY Tool to procure its rails and spindles directly from the BESSEY Präzisionsstahl, giving it precise knowledge of the steel quality that is going into particular components which are subjected to particular high stresses. This is because bright steels are produced and tested at BESSEY Precision Steel with consistently high quality and the utmost precision, in cutting-edge facilities.
"To stop improving is to stop being good."
The motto of company founder Max Bessey remains true today, as it will in the future, and is the guiding principle to everything that the company does.
