75 Years of Johnson

Johnson Level Commemorates 75 Years and Launches Year-Long Celebration for Fans

Johnson Level & Tool (Johnson) is celebrating the 75th anniversary of its founding in 1947. To celebrate their anniversary, Johnson is bringing the celebration to their fans – all year long.

“The last 75 years have given us plenty of reasons to celebrate,” says Peter Chatel, President at Hultafors Group North America. “We’ve grown from a small wood level manufacturing company into a dominant global manufacturer of high-quality levels, lasers, and measuring tools. But we aren’t satisfied solely with looking back on our history as a leading level and layout tool brand. We are looking to the next 75 years of innovative tools engineered for professionals to work faster, safer, and smarter on every job they perform.”


An anniversary wouldn’t be complete without the guest of honor – and for Johnson, that’s the fans! On jobs from site preparation and layout through finished carpentry, landscaping, remodeling, and DIY projects, Johnson end users experience accurate, durable, and easy-to-use tools. As Johnson kicks off its 75th year, the organization invites its customers, end users and fans to recognize all they have achieved over the last 75 years. With the #Johnson75 campaign, Johnson is taking it up a notch and launching contests, polls, events, and limited edition commemorative rafter squares and bamboo levels.

Kicking off on July 11th, fans can get in on the action by following the #Johnson75 hashtag and checking Johnson’s social media and website pages for giveaways, contests, and exclusive content.

“As we celebrate this milestone, we are proud of the achievements we’ve made, and we look forward to the next 75 years of accomplishments,” said Chatel. “We’ve seen a lot of changes over the years, but one thing remains the same – our commitment to building better tools for a better world.”
