Sweden’s prime minister impressed

On February 20, Stefan Löfven, Swedish Prime Minister and Social Democrats party chairman visited us to listen and talk about innovation and look at our products and manufacturing.

Stefan Löfven får en förklaring av Olle Sydlén hur tillverkning går till.

Prime Minister Stefan Löfven was impressed by Olle Sydlén’s story of how the idea of ​​an air filter went from just an idea, testing with the family’s microwave in the garage, to full-scale production to now be world-leading in the market and sole manufacturer to use microwave technology.

Stefan Löfven got to see and see all products, from the filter elements currently Racoon’s core business, to indicators and our latest innovation with water purification, guided by Olle Sydlén, who explained the characteristics of all products and why they are unique. The properties of the combined filter elements that provide protection against both particles and gases are fire-rated and can withstand explosions, cold, moisture and water. Properties that other filter manufacturers are struggling with today.

So, how much fun do we think, and what’s the start of this year?

International Mining on the present and future of Racoon

The global magazine International Mining recently conducted an interview with Racoon which has now been published in their May issue.

Now our filters are also available for Albach chippers

After Per Carlsson, dealer of Albach wood chippers in Sweden, contacted us in the hope of improving the working environment for drivers of wood chippers, we can now deliver a filter that ensures that you can work safely and securely in this difficult environment.

Historical environmental scandal is cleaned up with Racoon’s help

BT Kemi in Teckomatorp is known as Sweden’s biggest environmental scandal. Now it is being decontaminated and to protect the machine operators, our air filters are used. Maskinkanalen visited the area to talk about safety.

We are strengthening the board and adding additional support

We are now adding another person to the board who we are convinced will both develop and strengthen our position in the market. We welcome Urban Holmlund, Urban Holmlund Konsult AB to the board.

In addition, lawyer Magnus Lindblom at the law firm Kaiding will support us in matters concerning agreements, business agreements and other legal issues.

Hurray! Finally we are on the Australian market. Together with the Perth-based company Equipment Placement, our filters will be introduced to the Australian mining market.

Summation of the year 2018

We are starting to see the end of 2018. One year that has been hectic to all of us at Racoon, but oh so fun. We have begun a venture on a new market for us, Australia. A market that is not only huge for our products and solutions, but a market that sought after our solutions for a long time. The time could not have been better.
