Our history

The history of Preciform AB starts 1893 under the company name AB Carl Särenholm. The young entrepreneur Carl Särenholm started the company with one turning machine and a technical knowledge that he had achieved from his time as journeyman in Germany, France and Italy. The company’s first products were drawings set and instruments. In the beginning of 1930s the company expanded heavily with contracted production of army supplies. Over the next 30 years AB Carl Särenholm produced metal components like rakes, hooks, skates and beds. In the 1960s and -70s the company produced mechanical cash registers in stainless steel but the product discontinued with the introduction of the electronic era.

In 1974 the company moved the operations from the city centre of Eskilstuna to Vilsta industrial area, just outside Eskilstuna. In springtime of 1976 AB Carl Särenholm was acquired by Nickelbolaget i Eskilstuna AB, a company that had 85 years of experience producing sheet metal components to the Swedish army. 2 years later the company changed name to Hasselfors Preciform AB, became a member of the Hasselfors group of company, and consolidated the operations in the new facilities in Vilsta industrial area.

Since 1992 the company operates under the name Preciform AB, is privately owned and belongs to a group of companies with a focus on automotive industry (see Corporate structure below).
