SCANGRIP® was founded in 1906 starting life as a small local blacksmith, and over the years they developed into a tool manufacturer. They achieved great success thanks to the invention of the one-hand operated locking clamp, later known worldwide as the popular blue Scangrip Pliers.
The company was acquired in 1993 by Anders Borring who noticed mechanics were using traditional cabled fluorescent lamps which were outdated, fragile and struggled to produce optimal work light, he worked passionately to improve the situation introducing a range of LED Work Lights for the professional market.
The company continued to grow and today is Europe’s leading manufacturer of LED Professional Work Lights. In 2021 SCANGRIP® became a part of the Hultafors group who also have a long history of Innovative, high-quality products.
