MOHR is a brand of POLAR Cutting Technologies GmbH:
Adolf Mohr Maschinenfabrik (machine factory) was founded in 1906 developing from a mechanical workshop. The family´s forefathers had been blacksmiths. Since that time the company has not only changed its line of products, but also developed from a regional supplier to the largest global supplier of cutting machines.
From the first days after the company was established on 24 September, up to the Second World War the factory had built machines for the regional timber industry in the Taunus area. Adolf Mohr was granted several patents for wood and metal working machines.
Since the better known cutting machine manufacturers of that time were all based in the eastern part of Germany, there was no such supplier in Western Germany after the war. Karl and Rudolf Mohr used their connections to the graphic trade, made the most of this unique opportunity and started to develop cutters.
