Constant quality has its tradition at SHW

As a company for forging technology we can look back upon a centuries old tradition of ironworking and tool production. Our company is located in the Black Forest in the Forbach valley in Friedrichstal between Freudenstadt and Baiersbronn.

The blacksmith's trade has here in the Black Forest region his 'royal' cradle. With our logo we document the solid forging quality and durability of our products where already the former kings of Württemberg did rely on.
For our full range of all parts for agricultural machinery and hand tools we only use high quality special steel and process them with state of the art forging technology.
The awareness of consistent quality can be found in each of our forgings products. Whether agricultural machinery or hand tools for gardening, forestry or construction, our customers can rely on the stability and durability of our products.

SHW hand tools are available in specialized trade shops for gardening and accessories throughout Germany and neighboring countries.
We supply SHW tines and other forging products for the agricultural machinery to spare part dealers and OEMs worldwide.


Our history and tradition dates back to the 13th century. When first mentioned in 1267, noble metals and later iron ore were prospected in the Forbach valley.

Around 1600, the first hammer mill was established. King Frederick promoted the processing of ore and the production of agricultural equipment in such a way that the first furnace could be built in 1763. In compliment to King Frederick, Friedrichstal was named after him. Until 1820, Friedrichstal was the biggest of all seven Württembergian mills with almost 100 workers. As of 1805, Friedrichstal was the only mill producing steel.
