Welcome to Bertil Ohlsson

For more than 40 years Bertil Ohlsson has designed, manufactured and marketed automatic and semi-automatic machines for expanding and shaping for the can industry for business partners all over the world, permanently improving the quality, reliability and speed by incorporating modern techniques whenever possible.

In 2002 Klinghammer was able to announce the takeover of Bertil Ohlsson, the Swedish manufacturer of expanding and shaping machines. The takeover of the product range 'Larsen', the former Danish manufacturer of machines for welding and bailing, in 2012 makes it possible to deliver canmakers with complete 'back ends' of production lines for 3-piece cans from a single source.

With the VLM Compact-Line Bertil Ohlsson reacts to the individual requirements of can manufacturers and offers solutions for a highly flexible and efficient production line.
