Founded in 1939, Metalwo has a long history of supplying enterprises all over Europe with top quality products.
The business was originally established by Kaj Wohlert, operating from modest premises in Aarhus, Denmark. The company initially based its operations on the production of metal braces for corsets and tin-plated iron kitchen utensils, as well as both printed and etched signs.
During the Second World War, it was one of the first – and only – Danish companies to work with the chemical grooving of files for the iron industry, which led to the development of the company’s current etching technique. Once the war was over, the company concentrated primarily on the production of industrial signs, and changed its name to “Nordisk Fabrik for Ætsede Skilte METALWO” (Nordic Factory for Etched Signs METALWO).
