The company was originally created from the merging of Ystad-Metall in Ystad, Scania/Sweden and Metab in Karlshamn, Blekinge/Sweden. After the merger in 1969 the new company Scandia Present AB was garthered in Karlshamn.
Scandia Present produced gifts and collector's items in tin, pewter, brass, bronze with gildings and silverings. The gilded items sold very well and even the pewter was a success.
The company had its heyday in the 70's and 80's. The last production stopped in 2007 and the company was closed in 2010.
