This year, 2018, is an anniversary for MTAB – we celebrate 50 active years on the market.
Everything started in Stockholm in 1968 with a transportation solution for sensitive products difficult to transport. The operations got off to a good start and came to be significant within transportation of museum objects and sensitive computer equipment. IBM and a larger museum were among the first clients – two markets that have been closely connected to the operations since then.
Stefan Fors became CEO and owner in 1981. The services were developed and MTAB came to be the leading Nordic supplier within the industry. Lorries were purchased, staff was hired and contracts for warehouses were signed.
The services were based on the initial idea to transport sensitive products but the services were expanded to a client focused overall solution with transportation, handling and storage.
In 1994 MTAB established its operations in Gothenburg and the strategy to become a national supplier was set out. A significant expansion was carried out in the early 2000s. MTAB was established in Denmark in 2008 and those operations celebrate ten successful years on the market in 2018.
After 30 years as CEO Stefan Fors handed over the leadership to his son Simon Fors who continued the Nordic expansion to Norway and Finland.
“We currently see a great need for services in addition to the actual logistics. It regards everything from installation services and work on location to project management and great technical knowledge”
Technology, knowledge, craftsmanship and a willingness to meet the needs of the client has resulted in many innovative solutions throughout the years.
“That’s the vein we want to continue in. The market has developed from the start and we have developed with it. We always want to work close to our customers and continue developing our offers in line with the existing needs. Now we look back with pride and celebrate 50 years. At the same time it signifies a look towards the future and new solutions on the market”
