Started in 1943, the "North Bar Tool Company" became the first company in Britain to commercially manufacture torque wrenches. The initial demand was driven by the need for the gasket-less cylinder head of the Rolls Royce Merlin engine to be accurately tightened. Bill Brodey and his partner Ernest Thornitt obtained a licence from Britain's Government to begin manufacture of torque wrenches and Norbar was born.
Today, Norbar's state-of-the-art factories and backed by certification from UKAS and ISO to ensure the very latest design, manufacturing, and quality control technology to achieve highest level of innovation and precision in the field of torque control equipment.
