Our Culture

With more than 160 years in the manufacturing industry, we have leading expertise and a strong company culture as our foundation.

Our history

The company was founded in 1862 by Göran Fredrik Göransson, who was first in the world to succeed in using the Bessemer method for steel production on an industrial scale. At an early stage, operations focused on high quality and added value, investments in R&D, close contact with customers, and exports. This is a strategy that has remained unchanged through the years.
