Edlund was started by Swedish inventor H.J. Edlund in 1925. He had formerly worked for the A.J. Whiting Company as its superintendent. He invented the first commercial can opener and decided to start out in business on his own. So, Edlund has been in-town, in Burlington since that time. It was always difficult to figure out a way to open commercial cans that must be used in foodservice. There was never an adequate way to open them, so Edlund invented the commercial can opener.
There have been many other innovations since and all made in the USA, in Vermont.
