WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF BACKER

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.
