We are fully committed to the development and manufacture of high-quality steel products.

Our maxim is as follows: The future belongs to quality products that convince their users with their functionality, sturdiness and design. Steel is resistant and 100% recyclable. We consider it an important environmental contribution to mould this material into long lasting products.


In 1907 Albert Angehrn established the Angehrn AG metal work-shop. At that time, the first ALBA tools were bent and welded manually.

Later the production was carried out by means of machines in separate departments for forging, stamping and die cutting. Over the years, two entrepreneurial segments developed: ALBA tools and an industrial segment.


In 2002 the Krapf Family took over the ALBA tools segment. As a quality-conscious, innovative Swiss company we now work at an international level in the manufacture and marketing of our products. Due to our own development and construction departments, we have been able to launch successful innovations. We actively respond to future market requirements. High sales volumes have enabled us to work closely together with a number of regional social enterprises to expand the assembly.

Today we focus upon whole metal products in the fields of Winding Technology, Home & Garden and Construction.
