How do companies reason when it’s time to invest in new dust extractors, wet vacuums or air cleaners? What are the most important parameters evaluated? Low price? Best suction? Small and easy to handle? These are the kinds of questions we often ask ourselves and our clients.Discover our products
We have, thus, been able to collect a great deal of know-how on which we base our enterprise.
We know that there is quite a large market for inexpensive, simple machines. However, that is not the market on which we want to act. Quiet simply, we believe that is more interesting to work on a high quality level because:
We believe that wise business leaders and craftsmen understand that good quality machinery pays off in efficiency and reliability on an everyday basis
We believe that wise business leaders understand that their greatest capital is in their staff, and therefore choose machinery based on what provides the most positive ergonomics and working environment
We belive that wise buyers do not view the investment as a single purchase, but rather want to have simple access to service and fittings.
For that reason, we are going to invest even more in PullmanErmator becoming the best choice both for clients and their employees over the next few years. We will constantly develop new machines and aids for industry and craftsmen. This will frequently be done in collaboration with users as well as specialists on working environment. Since the highest quality “software” requires the highest quality hardware, our machines will be in the absolute elite.
With this vision and working method alone, we will truly be able to deliver ”Clean air from Sweden”.
Torbjörn Bengtsson launched a company in Stockholm called Bewaclean as early as 1985. The range included professional vacuum cleaners and cleaning machinery from Italy. The company grew both financially and geographically, and in the 1990’s it began building and selling its own quality dust extractors for industry and craftsmen.
With the new range the company grew even more, and in 1999 it acquired Pullman, a company that had a strong range of dust extractors and wet vacuums. Turnover increased to over SEK 25 million with this acquisition, and the number of employees increased to 22.
Exports across Europe are also heavily increasing.
In 2005, the company acquired Miljöburken, which meant that the range was broadened to include air cleaners as well, and thus new markets were gained.
The company has experienced strong growth over the past three years with an increase in turnover of 150%.
At the beginning of this year (2006), Ermator was also acquired. Ermator’s quality range of dust extractors and pronounced quality profile complement the existing range very well. The new company is called PullmanErmator, and has its operations in Smedjebacken and Gällö. It has around 50 employees, and will now have an annual turnover of approximately SEK 100 million.
The Swedish market is responsible for around 60% of turnover while the other 40% comes from sales in Europe and the Baltic countries.
