Gunnebo’s roots

The company takes its name from the village of Gunnebo in the south-east of Sweden. It was here that Hans Hultman opened a forge in 1764 and started to produce hammers. This small business grew steadily and by the 1800s several factories were opened.

Modern-Day Gunnebo

The old metal-working business was acquired in 1995 by venture capital company, HIDEF. HIDEF adopted the Gunnebo name and took the decision to focus all of the company’s efforts on delivering security.
