Welcome to Lindström

Our business is at the very heart of the story of tools

Tool manufacturing is a fascinating combination of raw, basic elements and the most modern high technology. Hand tools exist since 2.5 million years ago and some of them have not changed much to the eye over the past century. However, there is an ongoing development in terms of materials and manufacturing processes, in which we focus on innovation, ergonomics and performance.

Our products are designed for professionals of various industries, such as Electronics, Medical Device Manufacturing, Jewelry, Aerospace & Defense and General Industry. We manufacture our product in factories located in the Basque Country (Spain). Our partner distributors are delivering them to the professional end-users, as well as to discerning private users. We manufacture vast majority of products in our own factories located throughout Europe. Our partner distributors are delivering them to the professional end-users, as well as to discerning private users.

Our ambition is to continue being an unfailing company, professional above all, one which contributes to people’s wellbeing by offering the most valued productivity solutions in the world.
