When Arne Fransson opens first workshop in northern Sweden in Sundsvall, also called the Wood City, for its abundance of wood or Green Gold, in the early twentieth century .

In the beginning, Franssons manufactured fans for timber and paper industry. To transport the wood with fans, it had to be crushed, and based on this need in 1949, Franssons began manufacturing the first shredder.

In 1979, his son Lars Fransson joined the company, which now maintains and develops the innovative spirit of his father and custom manufacturing. It has increased export and international relations and the machines have had an important technological development.
