Innovative solutions that change Swedish industry
Article in Dagens Industri February 2019
To survive as a producing industrial company today, it is necessary to create an attractive and modern workplace. The Ulricehamns-based company, which is often referred to as the market-leading specialist in the optimization of e-commerce and order picking, is also one of the players who is doing a solid job of streamlining the Swedish manufacturing industry. With long experience and a smart product range, they have helped some of Scandinavia's largest companies to optimize their production flow.
– For the past 10 years, we have worked intensively to improve and modernize Swedish industry. A major challenge today is that companies do not understand what benefits an optimized production contributes to, and therefore it is not prioritized as a significant investment, explains Peter Sprigg, CEO of Helge Nyberg. Many industrial companies are struggling with space shortages, unsafe working environment and inefficient production, which could be solved by allowing logistics to take up more space in the management rooms, he continues.
Helge Nyberg offers a range of smart solutions that streamline production flow and logistics. The industries that today use forklifts and wooden pallets inside their production premises are facing a challenging situation that will require modernization to survive.
– It is a hugely inefficient alternative that takes up an unnecessarily large amount of space at the same time as it poses great security risks for materials as well as personnel, explains Peter Sprigg. In order to survive as a producing industry today, an attractive, secure and more modern work environment is required to attract and retain the right skills, he continues.

Instead of forklifts and wooden pallets, Helge Nyberg offers solutions in the form of wagon trains that are mounted and rolled into the production room with the material needed for the day. The result is a brighter and more surface-efficient work environment where safety and ergonomics change for the better. The production rate also improves as the material becomes more easily accessible.
- Together with our customers, we have helped many organizations modernize their production, which quickly results in measurable results on both profitability and growth. I think it is very important for industry leaders to realize the importance of the change needed to make Swedish industry smarter and more efficient, says Peter Sprigg.
This year Helge Nyberg has optimized Swedish industry for 61 years. By working close to the market, they continue to grow steadily and are currently market leaders in their segment in Scandinavia but have Europe as their home market, with their own subsidiary in Germany. Over the past two years, the company has grown 28% and Peter Sprigg looks bright on the future.
- We monitor trends to develop and develop innovative products that meet the new needs that arise in the industry. The flows are increasing and as we get more and more similarities between industry and e-commerce. It is in our DNA to constantly develop and want to drive innovation. That is why we are very positive about how our products will continue to optimize Swedish business in the future, ”he concludes.
