Lindab turns 60

On February 6, 1959, AB Lidhults Plåtindustri was founded in Grevie/Sweden by Lage Lindh and Valter Persson. It was the start of the company that 10 years later was named Lindab AB. Since then Lindab has grown to become a multinational company on the stock market, with over 5,000 employees in more than 30 countries. When the company turns 60 on February 6th, at the same time a piece of Swedish industrial history will be celebrated.

Neatness and order, down-to-earth, and customer success. When Lindab was founded in Grevie on February 6th 1959, solid corporate values were one of the cornerstones of the company. Something that would prove to be a winning strategy. What started out as a small business for processing sheet metal on the Bjäre peninsula in southern Sweden has today grown to become a multinational company that provides the international construction industry with high-quality ventilation systems and building products.

"We still work in accordance with the values that were established when Lindab was founded. In those days it was called good tradesmanship. It was all about putting the customer first and doing all you could to ensure the customer was successful. It's basically what we today call entrepreneurship," says Ola Ringdahl, CEO of Lindab.
