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.

Urban has extensive experience from the mining industry with several projects for Rio Tinto, Epiroc and Sandvik, among others. Urban was also the CEO of Bergteamet AB during the years 2016-2018 and turned red numbers into green ones. We believe Urban with his knowledge, experience and good contacts will be able to give us the insight we need to grow in the coming years.

In addition, lawyer Magnus Lindblom at the law firm Kaiding will support us in matters concerning agreements, business agreements and other legal issues. For us, it feels safe to have Magnus as a resource in the future.

Ole Kristian Skauan, product manager at Nasta AS/ Hitachi in Norway, is already in our board and, with many years of experience from the construction industry, has both knowledge of machines and a broad global network. Our collaboration with Ole Kristian stretches back many years since Ole Kristian’s time at Hesselberg Maskin AS.

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 now live in Australia

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.

Olle och Kristoffer pratar om våra filter med två besökare på Swedish Mining Initiative i Perth.

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.

Prime Minister Stefan Löfven visited our factory in February 2018.

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.
