WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF BACKER

- We have a great history but the future is our way

THE ORIGINAL SINCE 1921

 

Our founder Christian Backer patented the modern day tubular heating element back in 1921. Almost 30 years later in Sösdala Sweden, Backer BHV was founded to commercialize this technology for large scale production. Since that time, Backer has developed and produced components and solutions for electric heating markets around the world. Backer BHV AB, in that little town in the south of Sweden, continues to this day as the Backer Group's global headquarters. With over 40 companies and 7,200 employees around the world, the Backer Group is the premier solution provider in the heating element industry.
