Monthly letter March 2019 - everything in forging & glass in Stockholm

Now it is full speed in the forging workshop and after a few hard months it feels like we are on the track again! It was a great feeling when we managed to sell pretty much every hour in March. Recruitment of new employees is underway and we have some really good blacksmiths inside finsmide and construction forging at the entrance! We have many exciting jobs in the pipeline and are ready to continue doing world-class forging!

Magical powers

To me, forging is magic. It is really fascinating to see how our blacksmiths create unique forging products in our forging workshop. With a piece of metal, some tools and some machines, they seem to be able to do anything. It's like they'll conjure! We can take our metal glass sections as an example. They take some profiles, build them together, dress them up and suddenly they have a completely unique glass section in front of them! It's not about what they do but how they do it. And, I am deeply impressed by the skill of our blacksmiths!   

Special forging

Together with our skilled blacksmiths, we do forging jobs that others in the industry find difficult. We provide builders, architects, interior designers, managers, tenant-owner associations and private individuals with all types of forging and preferably complicated forging jobs. We do everything from completion forging, MT steel and security doors for special orders glass partr and exclusive furnishings. Both challenging and fun!

Special forging in Stockholm

Work environment & safety

Last week we had a visit from the regional safety representative who did a safety tour and looked at how we work with the work environment. We were praised for the nice order in our forging workshop! However, we received a remark that there was some material on the floor, which entails tripping risks. A well-known problem that we try to solve by marking out materials, putting in pallets, etc. We know that it can be a little tricky to get into the daily work, but we must continue to help each other get better at this.

As you know, we must always wear a safety helmet, eye protection, warning clothing and safety shoes when we are out working. For the jobs that require us, we must use hearing protection, gloves and respiratory protection. The requirements can look different with the customers, so it is important that you find out what type of hearing protection, helmet, etc. applies.

The improvement factory 5 S

It's a wonderful commitment to 5 Sgroups! In March, we made a number of improvements to create a better and safer workplace with higher well-being and better profitability. During my years at Lundgrens, I have never seen such well-cleaned machines in our forging workshop.

Our projects

In March, we made stainless steel plates for shower screens in Kämpetorpshallen. We did one metal glass part, black lacquered shelves and a glass rack. The oxidized the door sections to Solberga Church in Gothenburg were completed and assembled on site by our blacksmiths. The corten-clad steel frame to a ventilation unit in Kista was completed. The first stage of door sections to NKS was also largely completed. Furthermore, we installed a specially ordered door section. The production of the entrance to the Clarion hotel was in progress and a brass door was completed.

We also did forging jobs in Audio Bilhall and the work with mirrors in brass and portals for NK continued. The work with the ladies of the art academy continued. The gang at Jägarbacken continued with the forging job and made, among other things, wrought iron railings and a spiral staircase. The work with corner protection / plinths in stainless steel in the culverts at Södersjukhuset began.

The forging team was almost finished with the ongoing forging jobs for QHF for Peab. They also put steel place braces. Furthermore, the team made two balcony railings in wrought iron and frames for floor hatches. They completed the internal staircase to Tungel builders. The team assembled and welded wrought iron railings and made stainless steel skirting boards and details for Timberland on Kungsgatan. The service guys also repaired the front door. Furthermore, they mounted curb steel for a garage for ambulances for Skeppströms Byggnads.

In April, alternating forging, installation of forging railings, crash protection, door sections to Arlanda, welding work at Bromma Airport and stage 2 with door sections to NKS await. We will continue with the noise barrier to Arcona and start with the corten plates for the new restaurant on Biskopsudden. We will assemble the entrance section at Clarion Hotel and continue with the glass section to Gustavsberg's Porcelain Museum. Furthermore, we will manufacture wine place Grape to be built on the existing wine cellars in Magnusson Fine Wine wine cellar on Grevgatan.

In other words, it will be full of blacksmithing in Stockholm! If we also get some of the jobs where we are waiting for an answer, we will need to strengthen the force with more supervising blacksmiths!

The brothers Edding's Forging

During March did Eddings a glass section and wine rack. They completed the forging jobs for the outdoor gym at Lötsjön. Furthermore, they did various small forging jobs for Järfälla municipality and Saab. The facade forging to Bredängen center was completed. Järngänget also manufactured balcony and terrace railings forged for Kv Stettin. They also started assembling floorboards for the balconies. Furthermore, the facade cladding and the grid floor plan for the fan rooms were in progress. In addition to this, they began to clad a switchgear with aluminum plates for kv Brädstapeln.
