“..supplier of temporary mobile ground protection systems..”
As a small sized Swedish privately owned sales organization and procurator specializing solely in ground protective products with a focus on minimizing environmental impact we are satisfying a growing demand for new and eco-friendly solutions in one of the largest industries in Scandinavia.
It all started with founder Per Hillertz at a large garden party on a friends lawn. Guests were constantly stomping with high heels into the grass, getting stuck and then the rain came… the festivities became a muddy construction site with frowning guests. With a family history in the plastics recycling business and as a senior chemist he thought of using their extruded plastic sheets on another market such as this one, and also adhering to the growing demand of eco friendly solutions. A few prototypes later with added grip pattern and then product development into possibilities to interconnect and “lock” sheets, later called plates and mats, with one another, suddenly more and more markets emerged for this kind of product. Merging with a friend they started cold call selling and canvas demonstrations with no sales experience whatsoever. Sales rose and it was looking as if this could go from a hobby into a real business. Later on a bachelor party Per met a new acquaintance with experience from business development and digital marketing. They cooperated into scaling it into a real business. Everything from branding, automation processes, sales structure & product development grew into a business that today engages 6+ people on 3 continents and 8 countries with large possibilities ahead.
