1878 - 1939 Founding periods
Everything began with a village smithy at the heart of the Swiss Emmental. Until far into the 20th century, in this trade company exclusively hardware for agriculture was made. Then Paul Baumann (PB) brought his son Max Sr. into the business.

1940 - 1980 Industrial pioneer work
The production of hand tools was originally carried out for the Swiss army. The path to success was predestined. The demand from trade and industry for the Swiss quality tools quickly and continuously rose. Also internationally: As early as 1960, PB Swiss Tools exported to all five continents. The production halls were expanded and the processes automated. Until today the innovative energy which is anchored in solid craftsmanship has remained typical for PB Swiss Tools.

1981- 2009 Expansion of the market leadership
