Welcome to Lindstrom

SNA Europe is the premier pan-European hand tool manufacturer, part of Snap-on Incorporated. We design and manufacture tools tailored to the most demanding professionals, focussing our design on innovation, performance and ergonomics. As innovators for over 150 years, we have introduced the most advanced tools in the world, and sell through distributors with whom we build long-term partnerships.

Lindström products are overwhelmingly manufactured in our own factories located across Europe and offered by our partner distributors to the professionals of electronic assembly, medical device manufacturing, aerospace and bead and jewellery arts. Our ambition is to be and to be recognised as, an unfailing company, professional above all, a company that contributes to peoples’ health, wealth and safety by offering the most valued productivity solutions in the world.


Lindström has developed and produced high-precision cutters and pliers since 1856 - making us the oldest continuous producer of handtools in existence today.

Lindström is now a separate business unit within SNA Europe. The new Lindström is responsible for developing, producing and marketing not only cutters and pliers, but an assortment of high-precision tools including screwdrivers, tweezers, torque drivers and more. We have maintained our competitive edge through technical understanding, response to market needs, and commitment to advanced technology.

Some competitors have been able to implement one facet or another of the Lindström manufacturing process. Others have tried to copy the form, appearance and even the actual part numbers of Lindström tools. However, none has been able to successfully blend all the elements required to achieve the level of performance recognized as a true Lindström tool.

Our customers today have applications more demanding, varied and difficult to solve than ever before. They demand better performance, longer life and lower costs in every area. People have come to expect only the best from us. And as usual, Lindström will deliver.
