From village smithy to particle accelerators

Erik Olssons Mekaniska Verkstad AB is the oldest company in the town. Throughout the company’s development, from a village smithy in 1880 to the high-tech, precision company it has become today, it has been owned and managed by the Olsson family.
Between the late 1940s and late 1960s the company manufactured its own products for sawmills and the transport industry. During the late 1960s we made the transition to today’s business, which involves subcontracting to the engineering industry in Sweden and Europe.
