HC CJ
HyltÚn-Cavallius Carl Edvard Johansson
born 15/3 1864. Working in Carl Gustaf Stad
between 20/6 1891 - 1912

Staff Sergeant Carl Edvard Johansson founded 1911 a company producing equipment to improve the production of arms at Carl Gustafs Stads GF.

The question is if any Swede had as big of an impact on technical development as Carl Edvard Johansson. His gague blocks from 1896 were the basis for the shift in way of thinking that in history books is described as the transition to the industrial era. See history here:
