From sheet metal workshop to an international public company
Lindab was founded in 1959 by Lage Lindh and Valter Persson and has since then had its roots in Grevie on the Bjäre Peninsula in the southern part of Sweden. Today, Lindab's share is listed on Nasdaq Stockholm.
Lindab manufactures and sells products and solutions for ventilation systems in Europe. In a number of markets, we also offer building products in areas such as roofs, walls and rainwater systems. We can also offer complete industry halls in steel.
Lindab’s product and system solutions are offered out of two business areas. Ventilation Systems and Profile Systems share certain resources in purchasing and logistics, offering their products via a shared network of stores in Sweden and Norway.
Until the end of 2021, Building Systems was also a business area within Lindab. On 23 September 2021, Lindab announced the divestment of Building Systems. Read press release >>
Did you know that we breathe an entire tanker truck of air in a day?
We eat about 1 kg of food a day, drink 1-3 l of water and we breathe about 15 kilos a day. This corresponds to 12,000 liters of air or 20 cubic meters, as much as a full tanker truck.
Many of us are quite conscious about what we choose to eat and drink. But do you often think about the air you breathe? In the UK, we spend around 90% of our time indoors and often the air indoors is more polluted than outdoors. When it comes to children, they are more sensitive and at risk of higher exposure because they eat, drink and breathe more in relation to their body size.
Air pollution is a health challenge
If we stay in buildings with poor air quality, we run a higher risk of suffering from asthma and other respiratory diseases. In addition, our cognitive abilities deteriorate, such as e.g. learning and concentration. Therefore, we think it is extremely important that nurseries and schools have good ventilation.
Consider how the room will be used
When planning for ventilation, it is important to think about how the room will be used. For example, in a nursery, you must consider that small children often play on the floor and therefor the air needs to be able to flow all the way down there. It is important to have the right ventilation system and diffuser in the right place for everyone to feel good and be happy!
