We would like to thank all our customers, partners and distributors for working with us in 2016!

As we face increasing challenges in the global marketplace our strategy will change to focus more clearly on technology development, cost efficiency and functional sales. This will be done by maintaining our cutting-edge expertise in Björbo, adapting the business model to meet the increasing digitalization of the industry and transferring standard production. We are keen to keep our cutting-edge expertise in Björbo.


We are reorganizing
to best meet the challenges of the future by:

  • Retaining our development department in Björbo so that we can develop new products and adapt existing ones.

  • Retaining our service organization so we can give our customers the best possible service for the products we have on the market.

  • Retaining all customization in Björbo.

  • Strengthening our sales department with clear responsibility for our key markets, which are Sweden, exports and OEM customers.

  • Strengthening our customer management by creating an organization (Front Office) that provides excellent technical support, handles orders and ensures that all calls go to the right person or function within the company.

  • Communicating more clearly, with more focus on social media.

  • Embarking on an exciting project to discover the needs of our customers through interviews, which we are conducting together with Dalarna University and KTH Royal Institute of Technology.

  • Reviewing our range of old and existing products to ensure the operation and function of our systems in your business.


We are going through a major change process
and have several ongoing projects that aim to improve our deliveries to you. This change process is demanding and will pose some challenges to our production process and deliveries during the transition to the new organization. We ask for your understanding and would like you to please call us if you have questions or concerns. We will do everything we can to provide you with continuous information about the status of deliveries and service.


Åkerströms looks forward to the future
and the changes facing us with great confidence. Our goal is to remain a competitive player in the market, and we hope that you will join us in celebrating our 100th anniversary, 2018!


Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


With best wishes,
CEO, Tommy Larsson
and everyone at Åkerströms
