Backer develops, produces and sells customized solutions and components for electric heating, measurement and control. The original technologies was stainless steel tubular elements, however the Group has developed and acquired technologies that have made Backer the worldwide leader.
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 30 companies and 6000 employees around the world, the Backer Group is the premier solution provider in the heating element industry.
