How one man’s curiosity built an industry
Let us tell you a story. About Rolf, who was given a challenge that he could not let go of. A project that grew into a business. A business with a continued commitment to safe work environments and clean air.
The year was 1980. Rolf Johnson worked at a company specialising in manufacturing air filters for ventilation facilities. One day, when Rolf was visiting a client, he got asked to solve a problem: exhaust emissions from indoor driving.
Rolf did not know how to solve the problem, but driven by the challenge he took on the project. Little did he know that this would be the beginning of a profitable business. And a long and fruitful collaboration with the company that sparked his passion for the subject.
He started off working in the workshop in his garage, but as Rolf took on more work and the project started taking up more time, he decided to start his own business in
1983. The market had a demand and Rolf’s particulate filter could meet it.
The client that Rolf met with at that meeting back in 1980 was Volvo. They were very pleased with the first diesel particulate filter that Rolf delivered. During the first three
years he had his hands full with projects for the Swedish car company and worked solely with them. After a few years EHC got a request from what would be the first
international client, situated in Italy. Just a few months later we had become successful in Germany, which today is our largest market (together with Benelux).
Rolf moved operations from his garage to facilities in Partille outside of Gothenburg, where EHC can still be found today. We have founded subsidiaries in Belgium
(Benelux) and Germany. In these countries we work directly with the end clients to meet their needs.
Rolf has two daughters named Karin and Christina. They ran the business for several years, with Rolf supporting them through senior knowledge and dedication. In 2021, EHC took a new step in its development and became part of Sustainion Group AB, whose share is listed on the Spotlight Stock Market under the short name (SUSG). New owners entered the board, and we continue to develop the company towards a new future. We have a great team with extensive experience of our products and creating solutions for the needs of our clients.
