FISCO – Quality Precision Measuring from England

Fisco Tools Ltd - Made in Britain

Founded in 1940, during World War II, Leo Fisher began producing radio valve pins in a small cellar in London, for the Ministry of Supply. After the war, the company started making drawing pins and upholstery nails and in 1946 the first tape measures were introduced to the Fisco range.

As the business grew, premises bigger than the small cellar was necessary. This is why in 1958, the Fico factory moved to its existing site in South East England, covering over 60,000 square feet.  The Fisco range of great quality tape measures continued to grow with the introduction of long tapes in the early 1970s and for the last 40 years, Fisco has continued to develop and perfect its range of tape measures which are currently exported to over 30 countries worldwide.

In 2008 Fisco was acquired by the Hultafors Group, a Swedish hand tools company that the company has had a close relationship with for over two decades. The Swedish hand tool company, Hultafors,  is known for its high-quality hand tools, which have been used by Scandinavian and European craftsmen since the late 19th century.

Most recently, Fisco has joined the Made in Britain campaign, which is designed to champion UK manufacturing and British made brands through the use of a special marque.
