Vision, innovation and revolution
At Östberg, we strive to continually develop and improve our products. Our innovative power is the driving force and we work to consistently maintain the very best quality on the market. Östberg has its roots deep in Swedish engineering, where innovation and entrepreneurship have flourished for centuries.
In the early 1970s, radial fans were expensive, noisy, and took up a lot of room. Engineer Hans Östberg, our company founder, envisioned a fan that was effective, easy to install, and required a minimum amount of space. He pursued this vision and the result was the world´s first circular duct fan with straight through air flow and external rotor motor – an innovation that is now a worldwide standard.
New generation of fans
Just a few years later came the next revolutionary discovery: the rectangular duct fan. This fan had an even lower installation height and a higher capacity. Over the years that followed, Hans Östberg continued to develop new generations of duct fans with higher capacities, lower noise levels, better quality and lower prices.
Multi-million dollar business
Östberg in-house fan production started in 1981 and in less than 15 years, the business grew from a small workshop to a multi-million dollar company.
Östberg Group today: Changing landscapes
In the year 2000 the company broadened the product line to include complete ventilation solutions and thus Östberg developed from a fan company into a ventilation company. In 2004 production and sales were started in China and shortly thereafter, in 2005, Östberg entered into a period of strong expansion, widening the product range and launching into new geographical sales markets. This was also achieved through company acquisitions, including the purchase of Enventus. In 2014 Östberg started production in a third country: India. Some of the largest orders in Östberg company history came in 2018 through major rotor sales in the Middle East.
Increased focus on key markets
In 2019 the Östberg Group has entered into a new phase of consolidation and a thoughtfully analyzed focus on key customers and certain and more well-defined geographical markets. As a result Östberg is opting out of some less interesting markets in order to efficiently keep growing in for example the Nordic and the Indian markets. At the same time we are making large investments to further develop our various solutions for residential properties as well as smaller public and private installations.
