PICARD’s definitive breakthrough and market leadership conquest came in 1956 with the introduction of the tubular steel shaft in Europe. This was also the beginning of the era of the carpenters’ roofing hammer, which is today our bestselling product and for many craftsmen is synonymous with the PICARD brand. But the company’s history began much earlier than this: In 1857, Johann Hermann Picard founded a small blacksmith’s shop in Wuppertal, Germany – still the company’s headquarters today. Even though the very latest technology has long since found its way into the production of our hammers, the driving ambition behind each and every one of our 700 or so different products is to deliver the best crafted quality we possibly can for our demanding customers – put simply, to make crafted tools for craftsmen.
