7 Banisters and railings wrought according to the customer’s wishes In the beginning, the business consists of wrought iron railings and banisters for private residences in the area. Demand proves to be great because houses during that time were often furnished with functional furnishings in the form of simple railings and banisters with distinguishing details customised for the house and owner. Erik’s sensitivity to the wishes of each customer and his ability to be able to deliver and install the items proves to be a successful business idea. ”Built to last,” thinks Erik! The business consists of Erik, who handles welding and shearing, and Alice who does the painting and helps with deliveries. In 1958, the business takes another step forward, when the customer base is expanded from private customers to also include other companies. The offices at Götabanken in Smålandsstenar are the first customer. Built to last.
