A History of Excellence

BESSEY Tool GmbH & Co. KG is a family-owned German company that was founded as a bright drawn steel mill in 1889. BESSEY® has developed a well earned reputation for expertise as a producer of bright drawn steel, including stainless. In 1936 BESSEY® began production of malleable cast iron bar clamps, followed by the production of all-steel, heat-treated clamps in 1952.

A Fundamental Difference

Through their automated manufacturing and assembly operation, BESSEY® has grown into the largest clamp manufacturer of their kind in the world, distributing some 1300 different clamping tools in 90 countries worldwide. BESSEY® was the world’s first clamp manufacturer to achieve ISO 9001 certification in 1993.

A Single Focus

BESSEY® clamps are designed and engineered from the ground up by people whose single focus is clamps. BESSEY® manufactures and processes high quality steel in its own mills – the only way to guarantee the BESSEY® quality. BESSEY® controls every step of the process – manufacturing, assembly, finishing and rigid testing. That is the BESSEY® difference. From raw materials to the world's finest clamps ... nobody does it like BESSEY®!
