Johnson's story began in St. Louis, Missouri in the late 1800's. The following
statement was provided by the late Charles W. Johnson, son of the late founder
Charles H. Johnson.
"The original Johnson's Soldering Fluid was developed as the result of
the difficulty my father had in soldering laundry equipment that he
manufactured and repaired. Galvanized cylinders of the washing
machines posed a very difficult soldering problem."
Besides making fluid for his own needs, the elder Johnson began giving
it to his friends in the St. Louis area. When he moved to Cedar Rapids, Iowa
in the early 1900's his friends still wanted this unique soldering flux.
In 1909 he began marketing Johnson's Soldering Fluid and at that time he coined
the slogan "It Can Be Done" which has been used in conjunction with the
Johnson logo ever since.
Today, Johnson offers one of the most complete lines
of commercial and industrial solders, fluxes, tinning compounds and brazing fluxes in the entire world.
