GEDORE. One brand - two strong lines.

The GEDORE brand stands for high-grade quality, competence and reliability, and offers solutions for everyone who has a requirement for high-quality, intelligently made tools that support their safety.  Since 2018, the GEDORE Group has run two product lines under the world-famous brand: GEDORE and GEDORE red. With them, the manufacturer fulfils the GEDORE promise to offer every customer the right tools for individual desires and requirements. GEDORE meets the requirements of industry and trade: with high-quality tools that often perform even beyond the requirements of the standard, with customisations and special products. The launch of the second product line GEDORE red is an alliance of production, quality and market requirements. DBy concentrating on the essential and applying smart approaches, GEDORE red is able to offer reliable professional tools that are a clever choice for professionals and DIYers without having to miss out on a quality manufacturer's performance promise.

OCHSENKOPF. A brand like a myth.

OCHSENKOPF is the GEDORE Group's traditional brand for forestry and carpentry tools. The products manufactured by Germany's oldest axe forge represent perfection and safety. Ever since 1781 the Fahlefeld Bros. established the firm, the best steel with the best cut has been forged to a maximum quality in the Remscheid axe forge. An OCHSENKOPF axe represents skilled craftsmanship on the very highest level, and is to this day the pride of the highly traditional tool industry of the Bergisches Land.


We want to delight: with the best products, excellent service and innovative solutions - in other words, with tools for life. "Made by GEDORE" stands for customer proximity, innovation, performance and reliability. The values that make our company what it is all over the world. With over 16,000 tools, GEDORE has one of the widest offers of any European tool manufacturer. It ranges from A for axes to torque tools, screwdrivers and workshop equipment, to Z for zone valves. We also produce tailor-made special solutions. For our customers in industry, agricultural technology, automotive and the energy sector we make products such as ultra-strong, high-precision tools that work consistently and reliably even under the toughest conditions. The closest attention is paid to every single detail of every single GEDORE tool: qualified staff, intelligent construction, first-class materials and modern production methods. The GEDORE quality promise is based on 100 years of forging competence.

GEDORE stands for a universal, comprehensive offer of high-end tools, special tools and – by customer request – tailor-made solutions for the diverse, safe and professional uses required by industry and trade. The products represent the proven GEDORE quality that in some cases even exceeds the DIN.

Axe-making has been developed over time into a modern industrial undertaking. Quality and service have top priority.

Only the best raw materials are good enough: OCHSENKOPF tools are preferably manufactured of C60 steel. One of its features is its incredible toughness, which guarantees long tool life. Only high-quality wood is used in tool shaft production. Hickory is a high-grade and extremely break-proof wood. Instead of being sharpened to a knife edge, OCHSENKOPF tools are honed to a cambered edge, which results in longer edge life. So much more could be said about the brand considered by professionals to be the be-all and end-all. Bur basically you have to experience OCHSENKOPF. When working with wood. In the dark, deep forest.

Ever since the Fahlefeld Bros. established the firm in 1781, the best steel with the best cut has been forged to a maximum quality in the Remscheid axe forge. An OCHSENKOPF axe represents skilled craftsmanship on the very highest level, and is to this day the pride of the highly traditional tool industry of the Bergisches Land.
