The company began in the 1930’s in the oilfield tool manufacturing business. A line of wellheads bearing the famous Hinderliter name was developed, followed by the introduction of Johnson crane blocks. These lines were expanded with the addition of overhaul balls, wedge sockets, swivels, specialty blocks and, of course, a complete line of snatch blocks and sheaves, heavily used in the oil field.
Today, Gunnebo Johnson is a modern part of centuries old Gunnebo Industries of Sweden, with a perfect blending of above and below the hook products for industrial lifting and material handling.

From specialty swivels deep in the ocean, to blocks and sheaves in the Gulf of Mexico and the harsh North Sea, Johnson products are at work everyday around the globe. Johnson products give you quality performance and value unmatched in the industry.
