Our Heritage

The company’s founder Willy Forsström began building machines for HF-welding in the 1960s. The family owned company was founded in 1970 and has grown steadily. Today, Forsstrom is the world leader in this segment, exporting almost its entire production. Our welding machines are installed with customers located all around the world.

Despite large development, Forsstrom remains a family business, with two generations of the Forsström family playing active roles in the company.
