Helix USA is a part of Helix International Ltd., which was founded in 1887 as The Universal Woodworking Company Ltd. Math, geometry and accuracy in measurements are at the core of the Helix heritage, and the original product range was founded in wood rulers and laboratory measuring devices. In 1894, the Helix brand became widely known with the invention of the patented Helix compass. Since then, Helix has introduced many firsts in math, geometry and drafting products for the student as well as the professional.
Today in the U.S., Helix is widely known as the leading brand in drafting and school supplies. Millions of students have learned the basics of math and measuring with Helix products; as well, college students and professionals use Helix drafting products everyday for drafting, design and engineering projects.
