1832 – Company cradle

When Munktell set up the engineering workshop Eskilstuna Mekaniska Verkstad (as the company was named back then), the main occupation was repair work for the local industries. As the company grew, it started making tools and machinery products as well.

The road to the present is lined with numerous mergers and acquisitions. During the company's history, we find more than forty different names.

A large number of Munktell's (and his successors) products as well as the spirit of his achievements can be experienced at the Munktell Museum, situated in the birthplace of the company – Eskilstuna, Sweden.
