Radio remote control system manufacturer Åkerströms in Sweden, part of the Allgon group, recently won orders worth SEK 1.2 million (US$ 132,000). The control equipment for industrial use will go to Scanmaskin and Weimer Skogsteknik & Hydraulik.
Anna Stiwne, Åkerströms head of sales, said, “The co-operation with Scanmaskin started in 2007. We have since then delivered a significant amount of radio remote controls for them. In close co-operation with the customer we have developed custom solutions for their needs and machines.”
Scanmaskin has manufactured surface treatment, floor and polishing equipment at its facility in Lindome, outside Gothenburg, in Sweden since 1975.
The other order is from Weimer Skogsteknik & Hydraulik, a manufacturer of industrial forestry trailers for the Swedish market. The remote control equipment will be used for trailer mounted winches.
“We are thrilled to be able to supply remote controls for Weimer’s quality winches which meets their high quality demands in durability,” concluded Stiwne.
