It’s Tradition: Specialist for Precision

The company Josua Corts und Sohn was founded in 1835 in the tool production area of Remscheid during the beginnings of the industrial revolution. As the name says, the founding father was named Josua Corts. During that time, many other innovative tool, knife and machine manufacturers produced, what are now, world renown products.

In the beginning of the company history, CORTS produced wood carving and veneer knifes for the smaller local market but with the flourishing business of the industrial revolution in the beginning of the 19th century, the company grew steadily to todays corporation.

Our history dates back to the year 1835. Learn about the family business CORTS and the history of the company here. (»)
