History – over 130 years in the line

In the Craftsman’s Calendar for Nyköping, on October 30, 1893, it was announced that Lars Fredrik Larsson and Carl Fredrik Kjellberg were to serve as the headquarters for the blacksmith and court smith profession under the firm Larsson & Kjellberg, with the right for the companies to sign the company separately

Larsson & Kjellberg lead its origins from the end of the 19th century, more specifically to about 1880, when the company was founded as a forging company. In 1919, the business was taken over by the Stockholm-born Axel Anderson, who had already been employed by the company in 1909, and four companions, namely Ernst Gustafsson, Arvid Andersson, Erik Eriksson and Arvid Uhrbom. Axel Andersson was then active in the company until his departure.

The smithy was one of Nyköping’s oldest buildings, built as early as during the 18th century, and was in use for about 200 years as a smithy, without interruption. The building was demolished in 1976. At the anvil Axel Andersson works and with the sledgehammer is seen his son Hans. In the background with his back to the camera is Harald Uhrbom. Harald’s father, Arvid Uhrbom, was one of the co-owners of Larsson & Kjellberg’s forging company, as mentioned above.

The business initially only dealt with forging and repair work, but the firm eventually expanded and also began to undertake major industrial work. By 1924, the business had expanded so much that Andersson was able to purchase another workshop and he then took over the firefighter Hodell & Andersson’s mechanical workshop located at V. Trädgårdsgatan 33.

In these workshop buildings, wrought-iron businesses have been carried out since ancient times and, as it is said, old castle smiths have also been located here. About the age of the forging rooms testifies the age-old appearance with meter-thick cobblestone walls.
