Esab Welding Tools
The history of Sweden’s ESAB (Elekrika Svetsnings AktieBolaget, or the Electric Welding Company in English) is the story of welding. When founder Oscar Kjellberg developed the world’s first coated welding electrode in 1904, he launched a company whose innovation and uncompromising standards have helped create the history of welding itself. In 2012 ESAB was acquired by Colfax Corporation, one of the world’s leading diversified industrial manufacturing companies. The foundation of ESAB was built early in the last century by an inventive engineer who sought a practical solution to a common problem. Today’s ESAB is the result of a 1989 union of industry leaders. These companies represent more than 300 years of experience in welding consumables and equipment manufacturing and have introduced many innovative products and processes including the stainless stick and low hydrogen electrodes.
