Sievert AB, in business for over 130 years, is a world leading manufacturer specializing in high-quality heating tools for professionals.
Their products represent today’s most advanced technology, and their goal is to develop, manufacture and supply innovative and high-quality tools for all types of soldering, brazing and heating applications.
Carl Richard Nyberg was a specialist in soldering, but he felt the soldering technology available in the 1880´s could be greatly improved. He was determined to find a heating source which was more efficient. After much experimentation he succeeded in finding a solution, and in 1882 he made the first prototype of a soldering blowtorch for which he also obtained a patent.
Then, in the same year, the future industrialist, Max Sievert, opened the doors of a machinery business in Stockholm which would form the foundation of a major company. When the paths of Nyberg and Sievert later crossed, they formed a partnership which proved so fruitful. Nyberg manufactured blowtorches, and Sievert sold them throughout the world - a successful business was launched.
Since 2003, Sievert is a member of the Rothenberger group of companies.
