NORMA Group celebrates 125th anniversary of ABA

Maintal, Germany, August 12, 2021 – NORMA Group celebrates the 125th anniversary of ABA. NORMA Group emerged from the merger of the Swedish ABA Group with the German company Rasmussen in 2006. Today, the brand's product portfolio includes high-quality steel clamps, clips and tools used primarily in the connection of pipe, process and hydraulic lines.

“The ABA brand is synonymous for its outstanding performance under the most challenging conditions throughout the world,” says Dr. Michael Schneider, CEO of NORMA Group. “We are celebrating 125 successful and eventful years, during which ABA's product portfolio has continuously developed and prove to be very stable. I would like to express my particular gratitude to our employees, whose tireless efforts have made this possible. We are proud of 125 years of ABA.”

The company “Allmänna Brandredskapsaffären E. Bergström & Co.”, or ABA for short, was founded in Stockholm in 1896. In the beginning, ABA specialized in the production of general firefighting equipment. The company’s achievements include inventions such as a hand-held fire hose with a flexible metal tube, mechanical fire ladders and special rescue ropes. Today, the ABA brand is particularly well-known for its robust hose clamps with the distinctive blue casing.

“Over the past 125 years, we have served a broad range of customers from various industries and countries”, says Ulrik Thelin, Managing Director of NORMA Group in Sweden. “I couldn't be happier to be able to celebrate this special anniversary together with my colleagues and our customers.”

As part of the anniversary celebrations, NORMA Group is holding a lottery among ABA customers from Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Sweden and Italy. From autumn 2021 to spring 2022, customers will have the opportunity to win, among other things, a short trip for two to Gothenburg.
