The helko enterprise was started by a member of the Helsper family in 1844 in Cronenberg, now a district of Wuppertal. For many years, it was referred to as the Helsper Werkzeugfabrik, or Helsper Tool Factory. By the early twentieth century, the Helsper Werkzeugfabrik had began exporting axes to Africa, Asia, and the Americas.[1]

In the early nineteen thirties, a partner named Kotthaus joined the enterprise, and the company became known as helko (helsper / kotthaus). When Helko took over the Helsper Werkzeugfabrik in the early sixties, the complete company name in the German Register of Commerce became "Carl & Aug. Helsper GmbH & Co., KG, helko-werk".[2]
