The company was officially founded on July 12,1984, under the name of Edsbytool AB in Sweden.
The basic business concept was to build on and develop the skill and tradition existing in the region in production and marketing of saws and saw blades for wood. In 1987, Edsbytool joined forces with A/S Grorud Jernvarefabrik of Norway. The Norwegian production and sales were moved to Edsbyn and since their saws were widely known under the trademark of G-MAN, the company also changed its name to the present G-MAN TOOL AB.
This meant a rapid increase of volume and turnover, and since then a steady increase of sales has led to a consolidation of the company, which at present employs 25 persons. During the last few years, considerable investments in machinery and buildings have been made, in order to be well prepared for the future. Export business has always been very important and today, about 80% of the production is exported to more than 30 different markets all over the world.
