To Wibe Ladders, your safety at height is always the top priority, which is noticeable in every detail of their ladders and scaffolds.

Our philosophy

You can rest assured that when choosing a Hultafors tool, you are getting a tool that delivers the best possible functionality, precision and quality.

The knowledge Hultafors have of professional users’ workday is undeniably unique. As is the extensive experience. It all began in 1883, when Karl-Hilmer Johansson Kollén designed what is now the world-renowned folding rule. Since then, we have spent 130 years developing and manufacturing tools for craftsmen.

We offer a wide selection of hand tools for all types of professional craftsmanship. Our products are developed in cooperation with professional users aiming to contribute in making the workday as smooth and efficient as possible. For example, professional users are involved in testing the products until everyone is happy with the results. For us, it is the only way of making sure that our products live up to our promise – tools to rely on.

Hultafors products are designed with your best interests in mind. We strive to develop ergonomically designed, long-lasting products in durable materials. This way we can maximize the life span of our products and at the same time minimize our environmental impact.

A sustainable standard

We have high ambitions for our contribution to a sustainable future. For us it is important that you can trust our products as well as our actions.

We work with continuous improvements to reduce costs, improve our business and in the end, fulfil customer needs and exceed expectations. Sustainability for us is as much a social perspective as it is an environmental approach. By acting socially and environmentally responsible we build both our culture and our business long-term, ensuring that our customers can trust our products as well as our actions.
