In 1862, Göran Fredrik Göransson founded Högbo Stål and Jernwerks AB in Sweden to produce the highest quality steel, pioneering the Bessemer process. In 1886 he perfected the production of high performance saw blades whose cutting was worthy of the extraordinary steel they were made from, exceeding the expectations of users across the globe.
Garant was founded in 1895. It was originally a small family operation, offering tools that were fashioned and forged by hand. Continuing investment in new technologies and the development of a highly skilled and experienced workforce have helped Garant become and remain one of the leading Canadian manufacturers of snow removal and gardening tools. Over the years, various accessories have been introduced to perfectly complement Garant’s offer to seasoned gardeners
The plant that makes “the last hose you’ll ever buy” was a much different business when it was founded in 1947. Although they were plastic, the products were injection-molded parts for everything from can opener housings to pantyhose containers and car parts. Several different owners added other capabilities, including the production of garden hoses. With a focus on garden hoses, the company set the standard for quality with the introduction of its patented Flexogen hose.
Established in 1774, Ames supplied the tools that built America. Ames continues to simplify your life with innovative lawn & garden tools for weekend projects and daily maintenance. Our tools are designed to fit your lifestyle. They are lightweight with ergonomic designs, and they often employ multi-purpose features to make the job easier.
