We got a great history,
but forward is the direction we prefer
THE ORIGINAL SINCE 1921
Our founder Christian Backer patented the modern day tubular heating element back in 1921. Almost 30 years later in Sösdala, 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. Still today, in that little town in the south of Sweden, Backer BHV AB remains the global headquarters for the Backer Group. With over 40 companies and 6,000 employees around the world, the Backer Group is the premier solutions provider in the heating element industry.
Many of Backer’s products maintain their origins from the technical innovations in the original Christian Backer patents. Heating experts around the word still today refer to the so called “Backer element” as the industry standard.
Modern day Backer is a technical industrial partner to the most important companies in several industry sectors. We deliver competitive solutions within the fields of measurement, heating, and control for leading companies in the Automotive, Energy, Railway, Medicine, HVAC and Process industries. Our customers require innovative and customized technical solutions for their specific applications.

Our global presence ensures that no matter where our customers design, test or produce their products, Backer engineering and support services are always available.
