Olssons Elektromekaniska: a leading expert in the field of customer-adapted emergency power

Olssons Elektromekaniska started as far back as the 1950s as a repair workshop, repairing electric motors, welds and pumps, among other things, for local farmers. We outgrew that role a long time ago, and today we are leading experts in the field of emergency power – a field in which adaptation to customer needs, flexibility and technical expertise are central.

In the 1980s, our product range already featured a small number of emergency power units, at a time when most of our customers were farmers and market growers. By the late 1990s, the demand for reliable emergency power had grown radically in response to fears surrounding the millennium bug and its impact on power grids and electricity supply. It was at this time that major players, mainly from the public sector, also joined our customer list. Since then, we have continued to grow to become a leader in the sector. The public sector is still our largest customer group, but our private sector client base is growing continuously, particularly with digitalisation bringing with it growing demands for a secure and uninterrupted electricity supply.

Society is growing more and more electrified and complex. A growing number of social institutions, communications and commercial activities are now reliant on a safe and secure electricity supply. Critical systems such as servers, medical equipment, alarms, access control systems and emergency lighting simply cannot be switched off due to power outages. Today, some form of backup power is also present in more places than ever before, with even new commercial developments designed to include emergency power supply. At Olssons, we are able to meet any need for reliable reserve power, wherever it is required, with a comprehensive offer that includes not just units, but also peripherals, technology and service.

A high degree of technical expertise, flexibility and extensive experience are key factors in our success. These three factors also play a decisive role in terms of meeting the requirements in connection with procurement of major projects. Most of the major projects in which we participate involve customer-adapted solutions that are specifically designed to meet the specific reserve power requirements and challenges of the construction project in question. No two projects are alike, and our experience is of considerable benefit to us as society, together with its need for emergency power, evolves and changes.

Our expertise, flexibility and experience all derive largely from the people who work in our organisation. Our employees are motivated, enjoy considerable freedom in terms of decision making and have opportunities for personal growth. In addition, decision routes are short and there is a good working structure characterized by an absence of blame culture or lecturing.
