  • Picture of the month February 2021 - lamp fixtures

    At the end of 2020, we manufactured at Lundgren's specially ordered lamp fixtures in wrought iron. We manufactured and assembled two frames for attaching the luminaires. There was a lot of iron in the fire when the ace went hot when we forged round rods and leaves. These were designed in consultation with the architect. Ässjan was used to heat the metal in order to process it properly. It was beaten and hammered like in a real smithy. A real craft!

    The lamp luminaires are now in place on Jakobs torg 3 near Kungsträdgården. The customer is very satisfied. The luminaire part is approved and safety rated. 

    This project is a special forging job. We are happy to help find the best solution for forging and glass work where the solution is not clear from the beginning. Call us on 08-684 118 00 and we will tell you more. You can also email your request to anbud@smide.com

  • MONTHLY LETTER DECEMBER 2020 - Everything in forging & glass

    The year is coming to an end and with a few glimpses and other important events we are going to the end of the year monthly letter summarize the past year. Just 2020 has without a doubt been a strange year that offered something that was unexpected. We had to adapt to new circumstances in order to continue to conduct our business as normally as possible. 

    Some flashes of light

    We started the year by moving into ours New facilities in Bromma. It is not often you get the opportunity to build a new forging workshop, which has been very fun! We thrive! Another flash of light was spring course activities which grew with as much as 160 % despite prevailing circumstances. We also went in as partner in a sheet metal & forging company in Norrköping. Our hope is that we together with The brothers Edding's Forging will become a strong player in the market and deliver world-class forging and glass! 

    To be involved and make a difference

    Eezer is a project that is close to our hearts. Just before the pandemic broke out, there was a follow-up trip to Kenya. Since then, for obvious reasons, there has been a bit of silence. For that very reason, it felt extra good to end the year with that support music helpNo one should be left without care. By competing for an adventure trip to Kenya, we contributed SEK 43,400 in just over a day. For those of you who missed when the zealous Lars Klingsbo was in the program and told if the Burundi project can see it here. In 2021, we hope to be able to send a container down to Burundi with materials to start production of 50 crews. All to reduce maternal mortality in Africa with the help of motorcycle ambulances.

    Finally

  • Monthly newsletter October 2020 - everything in forging & glass

    How hard can it be?

    Our vision is to have fun when we create sustainable forging & world-class glass. To get an idea of where we are, we did an exercise. Divided into groups, we would cross a line at the same time. An exercise that seems simple but that quickly turns out to be difficult. The exercise highlights the importance of a common goal, communication, leadership, planning and problem solving. Just like in our job. And surely it's a challenge to get all the pieces in place? 

    My strengths, your strengths - how do we complement each other?

    Community is important for our success. That is why we are happy that we have such a wonderful group of skilled blacksmiths and project managers with different strengths, skills and experiences. To strengthen the community, it is important that we get to know each other better. This is so that we can gain an increased understanding of each other in different situations and how we can complement each other. It is not until we are welded together that we get a common will to reach the goal. When the we-feeling is strengthened, we also have more fun at work. It creates good conditions for good performance and a commitment that makes us unbeatable. 

    To boost the team spirit

    To build strong teams, we will focus on communication, roles and responsibilities linked to Lundgren's goals and vision. We will invent fun activities, tease each other, give feedback, look up and celebrate success. And we long until we can go on team trips again. But as long as the pandemic continues, we must adapt to the prevailing circumstances and make the best we can of the situation. Please come with suggestions!

    We welcome six new employees! 

    We want to welcome our new employees! Paddy recently joined us. A more skilled TIG welder you get to look for! Stefan also started his internship. He went one welding course in MMA welding this spring, got more taste and now wants to learn the profession. Great fun! We have also strengthened our strength with Niclas, who has extensive experience as a project manager in forging. And next week Jussi will make a comeback to take on a smaller forging job. In Norrköping, we welcome Pelle, who is starting as a project manager. Finally, the blacksmith Deividas will soon start Eddings. In other words, we have a strong squad that will deliver world-class forging and glass! And we want to be even more in Stockholm and Norrköping. So check out ours Available positions .  

    Autumn cosiness

    Cozy evenings at home feel right this fall. Do not miss our unbeatable price pizza steel so you can maximize the autumn coziness with a homemade pizza as good as in a restaurant!

  • 2020-09 Monthly newsletter September 2020 - everything in forging & glass

    This year's strategy day at the archipelago pearl Idöborg was a highlight and also a bit of a thriller out on the lake. 

    Our project managers met recently Idöborg to discuss vision, goals and strategy. We exchanged experiences between the companies and got to know each other, new and old colleagues.

    That we have a shared vision and work towards the same goal is important for us to be able to do successful business. This leads to a greater commitment, a stronger community and an increased shared responsibility for us to achieve our goals. 

    Having fun when we create sustainable forging & world-class glass! 

    We look ahead and focus on opportunities for increased growth and better profitability. Here are some points we will work on on the way there:

    • COMMUNITYteamwork makes the dream work! Different strengths, behaviors, skills and experiences lead to success. Getting to know each other strengthens the we-feeling and results in us working better together to achieve the goals. But, above all, the job becomes more fun! 
    • SATISFIED PEOPLE - when we get to do what we think is fun and skilled at, we become the most productive and efficient. Passion in turn brings joy. So if we take advantage of the will and expertise that exists, we can deliver world-class forging & glass. We can also expand the range of goods and services for today's and tomorrow's needs. 
    • CREATE SOLUTIONS - with a happy mood, we will take on challenges and take responsibility for our own and the business's situation. It is allowed to make mistakes! We learn and find new opportunities to get better. If we have a positive attitude, look up and see new opportunities, we will solve most things.
    • QUALITY AND SUSTAINABILITY - our ambition is to deliver good quality in efficient production. We will also work actively for increased consideration for the environment and reduced climate impact through climate-smart solutions and recycling. 

    When the gang's team spirit was put to the test

    To further strengthen the team spirit, we broke off with a joint kayaking. Some hesitated but eventually followed. It all started well with great kayaking in a beautiful archipelago environment and radiant sun. Then it suddenly blew up and everything changed from peaceful paddling to chaos.

    It was tough to get ahead in the waves and a big challenge to keep the group together. Soon one of the participants overturned with his "steady" kayak while another got stuck on a cliff. Shortly afterwards, he too overturned in the cold water. The group's ability to work together and team spirit were put to the test. In the end, with the help of the guide and pepper from the group, they managed to get back in emptied kayaks and paddle on towards the goal, wet and frozen. Ruggedly nice to come ashore and I do not think that a hot sauna and a beer can sit as nicely at some point as after this trip.

    What a fighting spirit

    I was taken by the fighting spirit in the group. Seeing their ability to solve new situations and work together towards the goal was impressive. Together we will be unbeatable! 

    PS Maximize the feeling of autumn coziness with a good pizza with the help of our unbeatable pizza steel for the perfect pizza!

    Hot plates in a double sense

    Right now we have an ongoing summer campaign on pizza steel and there is a high demand. But, is it really possible to bake pizzas as good as in a restaurant with a pizza steel? It works! The grill element in the oven heats the pizza steel to a very high temperature. When you bake the pizza, it gets heat from the steel from below as in a real pizza oven. The direct contact with the hot steel gives the pizza a crispy and good bottom. The pizza also gets heat from the grill element, which means that it gets a perfect baking. The steel can also be used as a frying table on the grill for fish, vegetables and meat. You can also bake bread on the steel. 

    Eager to test? Then you should take the opportunity to buy pizza steel for only SEK 344 this spring webshop

    Finishes with a few flashes of light 

    Absenteeism dropped to zero at the end of June after being between 12-30 % since the beginning of the corona epidemic.

    How does the coronavirus affect us?

    So far, we have been relatively spared from the coronavirus and its effects. We have been able to conduct our business as usual based on the guidelines of the responsible authorities. Only a few smaller projects have been postponed to the future. Despite a high absence, we have managed to carry out our projects on time and the demand for our services within forge and glass has been great despite the crisis. 

    But we are likely to be affected in the long run, the question is just how? To what extent and in what way will it be built in the future? Will projects be postponed to the future due to the state's finances becoming more strained? Or will it invest in infrastructure? The questions are many and we do not know what is to come. We have left what was once to land in a new unknown place. During the journey, we must focus on selling, collaborating and looking up to find new ways. It is important that we face difficulties with a happy mood instead of complaining or depressing. Because if we have a positive attitude, expect something good and look ahead, we have a better chance of success! 

    Lost sales

    The fact that we are behind with the sale has nothing to do with the coronavirus, but it is a situation that we have put ourselves in. But with our slim, awesome staff, we are concentrating on interesting business and it feels like we are heading in the right direction. It bounces a little here and there and soon it will come loose. Then we will instead have too much to do but it is a luxury problem that is more fun to solve!

    Maintenance and repairs will always be needed. So no matter what the effects of the corona crisis in the future, we should take action now service forging in greater occurence. We have received two framework agreements and it feels great! 

    Bake pizza like a pro!

    Right now you can buy ours pizza steel for only SEK 344! With the pizza steel, you can bake pizza in an ordinary young person as well as in a restaurant! In just a few minutes you can bake pizza, soft cakes and flatbread. The pizza steel can also be used on the outdoor grill to fry fish, vegetables and meat. Great for summer barbecue evenings! The pizza steel is available for purchase this spring webshop.

  • Monthly newsletter April 2020 - everything in forging & glass

    We are in a time of uncertainty, worry and change. And, how well you work under the prevailing circumstances! To cope with high absenteeism and challenges, we help each other. Therefore, we can continue to manufacture and assemble metal glass sections on the assembly line, do hearses, pizza steel, wrought iron railings and much more. 

    We'll get through this together

    We'll get through this and land the plane without crashing. This means that we must maintain the focus on sales, cooperate and be prepared to quickly solve what is not going as we have intended. We should face difficulties in a good mood instead of complaining or depressing. If we have a positive attitude, expect something good and look ahead, we have a better chance of success! We will continue to follow the advice and prompts from the responsible authorities and, based on this, conduct our business as normally as possible.

    Create order in the forging workshop

    Imagine that you go into the workshop and feel tagged and full of ideas how to do your job. You will immediately find everything you need, the machines are ready to use and you just have to get started!

    An organized workshop makes the work both fun and efficient. The more order and order we have in the workshop, the easier it will be to find what we are looking for. It creates well-being and we save time! We can work more efficiently in a safer work environment with less conflict, etc. I am convinced that no one wants to start the day by cleaning for someone else or looking for drawings, materials, keys, tools, etc. in the nooks and crannies.

    How do we get there?

    Using 5 Smethod, we can get order and find out in the workshop. We will: 

    1. SORT - throw everything away unnecessarily! Only what is needed for the daily work may remain. 
    2. SYSTEMATIZE - arrange all things and all equipment according to how often they are used. Mark with labels, markings on the floor, etc. Every thing should have its place! 
    3. CLEAN - agree on a suitable cleaning level - the workplace must be ready for use! That we agree reduces the source of conflicts.
    4. STANDARDIZE Maintain order and make the cleaning and ongoing maintenance work.
    5. CREATE HABIT - everyone should continue with the daily cleaning, but to move forward we need to work with constant improvements.

    5 S is thus more than just cleaning. Now we will together take 5 S to the next level. So up with the 5 S-boards, make an action plan and get started in the groups!  

    We wish you a nice Walpurgis weekend!

  • Monthly letter March 2020 - everything in forging & glass

    Everyone is affected by the spread of the coronavirus, so are we. Right now it feels like we are on a plane on our way to an unknown destination. We are high in the air and on board there are both fear of flying and calm passengers. The plane sounds more than usual and we are exposed to turbulence and unpleasant impressions. Air pits cause the plane to suddenly sink and this is something that can be experienced as unpleasant even for those who are not afraid of flying. A feeling that now we are crashing we can suddenly appear… 

    But, we must continue to fly and focus on the goal even if conditions change rapidly. Adapting quickly to prevailing circumstances is important. We may have to change flight altitude or fly around an area to cope with unforeseen turbulence. The goal is still for the plane to land without crashing! 

    Today we do not know what consequences the corona pandemic will have. The goal is for us to get through this turbulent time and the challenges we face. Cooperation and a strong community are more important than ever right now. Without it, it will be difficult to perform forge and glass world class! 

    Our course activities continue!

    The interest in learning to weld and build their own objects in wrought iron continues despite the corona crisis. We will therefore continue to give everyone who is healthy the opportunity to learn welding. So check out our extended course offerings and sign up for a welding course!

    TIG welding beginners

    No one wants to clean up after someone else 

    5 S is a forum where everyone is involved in creating order and order in our forging workshop. Now we have the most important piece left. Namely, to make work a routine in everyday life. It is not until it becomes unnatural to leave one's workplace in a state other than the very best that we know we have succeeded. It should be obvious to follow the agreements we come to. After Easter, we will divide everyone into groups with different areas of responsibility and continue working on the final steps 5 S.  

    1. Sort
    2. Structure
    3. Clean
    4. Standardize
    5. Create a habit

    All for an even better and safer workplace with higher well-being and better profitability!

  • MONTHLY LETTER FEBRUARY 2020 - everything in forging & glass

    Welcome to the family!

    Finally, we can tell you that we have recently joined as a partner in a sheet metal & forging company in Östergötland. Great fun and exciting! We have a lot to gain from a collaboration. They know sheet metal & forging and we can contribute what we are good at. In addition, it will be easier to achieve a good result if we are helped through adversity and success. Together with Bröderna Eddings Smide, we will become a strong player in the market and deliver forge & glass world class! 

    We're going to grow so fast

    We are well on our way to crossing a milestone in Lundgren's development, namely a turnover of 100 million by 2020. As a result of our own growth and acquisitions, we have increased in size. Here are some points we worked on:

    • SELL It all starts with sales!
    • COMMUNITY Teamwork makes the dreamwork!
    • 5 S Create and maintain order & order. 
    • RECRUITMENT CV is history! A positive attitude and how to use your knowledge is more important!
    • PROFIT OWNER SYSTEM Take responsibility for sales and implementation of your own projects and you will get to see the results. 
    • DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES The door is open for you who want to develop. 

    Our ambition is to continue to grow by finding more companies where our platform can be useful.

    Now Eezer is in Africa to reduce maternal mortality

    A new group is in Kenya to follow up the project of developing and implementing motorcycle ambulances for reduced maternal mortality. They will deliver a new crew to a clinic in Samuli in southern Kenya and follow up on some already delivered crews.

    Do you want to get involved in Eezer? Then you are welcome to contribute exactly what you are good at or you can become monthly donor to take the work forward. To be part of making the world a little better is an indescribable feeling!  

    Eezer has a lot of exciting things going on. Among other things, materials for ambulances will be transported down to Burundi. After that, Eezer will set up a workshop on site where locals will be trained in building ambulances. As maternal mortality is a major problem in Burundi, carriages will make a big difference and save many lives.

    Take a welding course with us this spring

    Even if you have never held a weld before, you can easily join metal together with the help of a welding wire and build a table, for example. Eager to learn? Then you should check out ours supply because we have courses for all tastes, both for private individuals, companies and schools. With us, for example, an 80-year-old woman who has never welded before managed to get her first welding certificate.

  • Monthly newsletter January 2020 - everything in forging & glass

    Now we're in place

    I want to start by thanking the moving team for a fantastic job because now we are finally in place in the new forging workshop at Tornväktargränd in Bromma. It feels good when the machines run hot and a wonderful mix of music is played in the speakers when our skilled blacksmiths conjure up unique forging products. 

    It is not often you get the opportunity to build a new forging workshop, which has been fantastic fun. Our new forging workshop has many advantages, including the surface where there is an opportunity to grow and create a good and pleasant working environment. It also feels good that we are centrally located and can continue to provide fast service within forge & glass to our costumers!  

    Now we will speed up sales 

    We face (as always) a number of challenges. Next we need to speed up sales. Selling is not always easy but full of challenges. Either we can choose to blame yours and hers or we stop apologizing and drive on because it is full of interesting business. Peter and Martin feel tagged for the task of driving sales forward. Here are five tips on how we can speed up our sales: 

    • Set aside time. Nothing is more important than selling. No but without realizing that your sales time is important!
    • Be quick. Get in touch with the customer quickly, leave quick quotes, give quick feedback, give fast deliveries, etc. No one likes to wait!
    • Build relationships. People want to do business with people and not with companies. So take good care of our customers at all levels!
    • Solve problems. Find out what the customer needs help with and solve it! 
    • Exceed expectations. To retain the customers we already have exceed their expectations. If they are satisfied, they will buy more and provide good references. 

    Remember that no one is the best at everything, so exchange experiences and lessons, pep and help each other with the challenges that arise. Together we have lots of knowledge and strengths that allow us to deliver world-class forging and glass. Everything from beams and steel stairs to glass sections and shelf brackets. In other words, small and large. We are experts in special forging, something that others in the industry find difficult to perform. It is a privilege that we have so many skilled blacksmiths! So what do you say, do you accept the challenge?

    Great interest in welding

    The interest in learning to weld is great, so we have expanded the range of courses with, among other things, metal handicraft, welding evenings and weekend courses. For five years, our experienced blacksmiths have trained in welding and hundreds of course participants have received approved welding tests. So check out ours welding courses and take the chance and try something new either as a course participant or course leader. 

    Nice weekend!

  • Monthly newsletter December 2019 - everything in forging & glass

    What do we remember from 2019?

    Wow what a year it has been! The parable of a roller coaster is quite apt for the year. Expectantly, you sit in the carriage and it becomes a journey both up and down and with a loop in the middle. When it is at its scariest, a feeling suddenly arises that you want to get off the car, but it is not possible. It goes away and suddenly you are back where it all started and happy that it is over. A fun, exciting, cool or awful experience, depending on who you are.

    2019 is a year that I will soon forget with many great challenges that we together have helped to overcome. Here you get some glimpses from the year.

    The year began shakily with low sales. It was tougher than we had predicted to succeed with the sale through our investment with new project managers as our old experienced foxes retired. Until we got Lundgren's biggest project of all time. It was an outstanding team that struggled with steel frames and sheet metal cassettes on Fridhemsplan during a very tight schedule this summer. The gang showed that they could solve the task in a good way in time. 

    No summer without a summer torment

    It was a real push to get us through the liquidity crisis that we ended up in for various reasons. We had to get out of the slump completely icy cold when we saw a glimmer of light. So after a few sleepless nights, we managed to recover the cash and also break records! This meant that we could finance the purchase of our new one forging workshop in Bromma and that the renovation of the premises could begin. In addition, we were in phase with our sales budget! What a thrill!

    Other highlights

    Another highlight from the year was the follow-up trips Eezer to Kenya. That we get to see the results of Eezer's work on site and that the motorcycle ambulances actually save lives in the African countryside is an indescribable feeling. 

    I will also remember the commitment at our 5 S meetings with a focus on moving. Also team travel to Prague and Palma when we put fun in the culture and became even more welded teams etched in the memory. 

    Finally

    We managed to reach our sales target in 2019 and are generally satisfied with the result. A big thank you to all the staff who make Lundgren's a fun workplace and that we can perform forge & glass world class! We have challenges ahead of us but also great opportunities. If we focus on the right things and benefit from our lessons, we will succeed in achieving our goals also in 2020. The key to success is cooperation and together we are unbeatable. Teamwork makes the dreamwork!

    Away with the time thieves

    What an opportunity to create a forging workshop with better order and a more pleasant working environment! Now we have the chance to remove time thieves and create new habits so that jobs can flow better. In our new workshop, we will not store or save more than is necessary. In addition, we will only have the equipment and materials required. Everything else is a waste! Because it takes us unnecessarily much time to look, wait and move things around as soon as we need something. 

    Christmas and moving are fast approaching

    On Friday, it's time for the big Christmas 5 S-day. As you already know, we will focus on the move. We will clean, move things and start installing in the new workshop. Afterwards, we will enjoy a well-deserved Christmas party at the Stadium with loved ones. 

    New products in our web shop

    Before the Christmas rush, we will fill our web shop with new products developed by our employees. The creative joy that exists among us is something we want to take advantage of. So feel free to visit ours webshop because there you will find a wonderful mix of fine furnishings in sustainable forging. 

    New: Marshal holder

    Now we are going to do something about maternal mortality in Burundi

    Many women dies in Burundi in connection with pregnancy and childbirth or complications related to childbirth. There are many who do not arrive at the clinic on time when it is time to give birth. So we will try to solve that together Eezer with the help of motorcycle-based ambulances.

    Right now, Eezer is putting together a team that will get 100 carts together. This spring, a container will be filled with materials and equipment for 50 wagons going to Burundi. After that, the team will go down to start production locally.

    The team needs a skilled electrician and someone who is skilled at milling. Do you feel called? Or maybe even want to help on the spot? In that case, contact Richard. Likewise if you want to contribute materials, equipment or tools. I promise that it is an indescribable feeling to be part of making the world a little better!

    Lots of welding

    It was fun when students from Beckman's design college were with us on a welding course. Soon it's time for another fun welding event when craftsmen in Stockholm come to us to see our workshop and try welding. Next year we will expand the range of courses including metal handicraft, welding evenings and also welding courses in TIG.  

    Beckman's students on a welding course

    Teamwork makes the dreamwork

    It was community that was in focus in Prague and Palma. We had time to share thoughts about the job, interests and goals in life. In addition, we had time to reflect on how we should work to achieve our goals. It really warms my heart that we have so much fun together!

    Now that we have gotten to know each other better, we can take advantage of our different strengths. In addition, we become unbeatable together when it comes to performing forge & glass world class. Teamwork makes the dreamwork!

    High-level cooperation

    The final sprint

    The countdown to Christmas leave has begun and all leave applications have been approved. Now we go into the final sprint. It's a great job you do so keep it up all the way straight to the finish line! 

    Our projects

    In November, we continued with the cortene facade on Biskopsudden and installed copper-clad glass sections for Bromma church. We made wrought iron railings with guides that were wrapped in leather. We also made steel pillars, wrought iron railings and steel stairs. In addition, we made windows and door sections for the County Council House and burglary grilles for NCC. Furthermore, one replaced the beam job the other to the LA group. Finally, we also made sheet metal walls for Fridhemsplan day and night.

    The Eddings brothers

    In November, Järngänget did Eddings furniture designed by Jonas Bohlin to the new star restaurant on Biskopsudden. They continued with the forging jobs for Lidl, made suspension details for luminaires for the bridge at Bälstaån and also installed terrace railings and canopies at Gärdesskolan. Furthermore, they started making a staircase to Trygg-Hansa-Huset.

    In December, Eddings will install forging for Welandtrappor and also continue with some additional work in kv. Stettin. In addition, they will manufacture a lattice floor plan for Lidl in Barkaby.

    Teamwork makes the dream work

    Every year we go on team trips to dedicate ourselves to team building. The purpose of the trips is for us to get to know each other better and build relationships. When we get to know each other, the we-feeling is strengthened and we work better together as a team. We become more efficient when we can cooperate. But above all, we have fun at work when we work with friends, which creates good conditions for good performance. This will lead to us reaching our goals.  

    So therefore we will now devote ourselves to forging and teamwork in Prague and Palma. There will be some fun and intense days! New relationships must be created and old ones must be nurtured.

    Back on budget

    After a shaky start to the year, we came back on budget! There were many balls in the tube after this summer's big project. We have some new exciting business underway and until then it is important to occupy all hours with interesting forgedAnd glassJob!

    Back on budget

    Seller of the month

    Congratulations Richard and Martin who got a big framework agreement on service forging! It will generate a lot of jobs in the future. 

    This year's novelty - metal handicraft

    For four Tuesdays in a row, we will open up our forging workshop for metal craft. With access to welds and machines, participants will have the opportunity to create or repair what they want themselves with the help of an experienced course leader. So hurry up Report you!

    The improvement factory with a focus on relocation

    At the 5 S meetings, we cleaned up before moving to our new forging workshop. We also made some improvements in our new forging workshop where we built a forging ramp and got a new door in place. The rebuilding of the public spaces continued in full swing and we placed where workplaces and machines will be located. We will continue our work with the move and the large moving load is planned around the turn of the year.

    Our projects

    In October, we built two Eezer Motorcycle ambulances to be used as display copies. We made glass sections that we covered with both copper and brass. We started with the assembly of copper-clad glass sections for Bromma church. Our new project manager Peter started with a beam job for NOD Kista with the support of our knowledgeable blacksmiths. In addition to this, we installed door sections around Stockholm and the surrounding area. We manufactured wrought iron railings, guides and steel stairs. We also fixed it the metal glass sections to Solberga Church in Gothenburg and completed the door sections to Karolinska Hospital. At Fridhemsplan, we installed specially adapted corner sheet metal cassettes.

    It went like clockwork for all the blacksmiths who put welding samples and the inspector was impressed by all the skilled welders. In December, it's time for a new gang.

    Welding test

    In November, we will install an entrance section in Bredäng to Primula Byggnads. We will also manufacture and install a 36 meter long window sill in sheet metal for the new restaurant on Biskopsudden.

    The brothers Edding's Forging 

    At the same time as Lundgren's continued with the curtain façade on Biskopsudden, Järngänget made furniture for the new star restaurant.

    Further continued Eddings with the forging jobs for Lidl. They also made metal glass sections in brass for Lunda Hotel. In addition, they mounted beams for the middle fan room and reinforcement beams for Kv Stettin. Furthermore, the gang mounted an external railing to Bolinder's terrace in Kallhäll and glass brackets in Nynäshamn. In addition to this, they had time to finish the alternating beams for a staircase and now they are starting the work of building a steel staircase. They finished the entrance sun floor in Tomteboda and began to build a loading dock to Kinnarp.

    Same ambition now as then

    When I cleaned at the workshop office, I found a flyer from 1987 where we market our services in welding and forging. This shows that the ambition already in 1952 was to be able to deliver good quality combined with good customer service and that it has given us many and recurring customers over the years. This ambition has remained in three family generations. In the same way, industry experience and skilled employees have been important ever since Lundgrens began its operations 67 years ago. As a result, we have been able to deliver forge and glass world class through all the years.

    The move to the new forging workshop

    It felt important to gather everyone in our new premises Tornväktargränd in Bromma to show the forging workshop and give answers to questions about the move. We were happy to tell you that we will rent the room next door, which means that we will have twice as much space.

    It is a great challenge to carry out the move so that our business does not stop. Above all, good planning and commitment from everyone is required. We have already started the relocation work a little bit on our 5 S meetings by marking what we need to have with us. Feel free to come up with ideas or suggestions for improvements on how we should decorate the new workshop. Because when the rebuilding of the public spaces is complete, we will start moving over parts of the business. And, when the move is complete, we will have a thunderous move-in party in the new premises!


    Team travel

    Soon it's time for long-awaited team trips and this year the trips go to Palma and Prague.

    Efforts to reduce maternal mortality in Africa

    Even Eezers second follow-up trip to Kenya was successful. During this trip delivered Eezergang carriage 27 to a clinic in Rongai. Are you curious about what it is like to go on a follow-up trip? Then you should read the Eezerambassadören Lena's diary

    What happens now? In October, we will produce two display copies. In addition, we will continue to be involved in the production of more ambulances. 


    Seller of the month

    Congratulations Yosef who got in a series of exciting projects! For example, steel stairs, metal glass sections, interior forging and wrought iron railings. Tomas also got an exciting job with specially ordered glass sections for new ones The Tram Museum which will move from Södermalm to Gasverket in Norra Djurgårdsstaden. 

    Our projects

    At Fridhemsplan, everything floated as it should with the installation of sheet metal cassettes. In addition to this, we installed door sections in Högdalen and delivered door sections to Kista Galleria. We also installed cover plates in Nynäshamn. In the forging workshop, we manufactured metal glass sections and forging gates. In addition, we made changes, glass doors, railings and steel stairs. We also made a canopy to Bromma Airport and continued with the cortén façade on Biskopsudden.


    The Eddings brothers

    There was also a lot to do for the iron gang Eddings in September. Among other things, they mounted beams for a ventilation unit and reinforcements of TT cassettes for kv Stettin. The gang also started assembling a grid floor plan in the shaft at Gärdesskolan. They will probably now start with the assembly of wrought iron railings and the manufacture of canopies. They also helped MVB with brackets for a glass facade. Furthermore, they were almost finished with the work on a new floor in Bromma where only additional work remains. The manufacture of variations for stairwells in the Trygg-Hansa house was completed and they will soon begin assembly. In Tomteboda, there was a new mezzanine floor.

    Eddings also finished the brass-clad glass section for Lunda hotel. They also worked with restaurant forging for Karolinska Hospital and made furniture for Biskopsudden. The work in Viksjö center was completed and as a nice end to that project, the iron gang assembled a work of art in Viksjö Stadspark.


    Artwork Viksjö city park

    It was also full speed in the Lidl project where Valle and his efficient team mounted 280 meters of wrought iron railings. Now there are about 120 meters left to assemble. In addition, they mounted diversions, a spiral staircase, ventilation hood, folding glass walls, support plates, angles etc.

  • Monthly letter August 2019 - everything in forging & glass

    Welcome back!

    Hope your summer has been good and that you feel charged for the challenges of autumn. It feels good to have all the strength back. 

    Fridhemsplan has opened as planned

    Many thanks to everyone who stood up and helped us to implement the Fridhemsplan project. Getting through such a large project in a short time in the middle of summer is both challenging and fun. It was an outstanding team that fought and showed that they could solve the challenges that arose in a good way. It made us feel confident that we would be able to do the job. The gang mounted steel frames and sheet metal cassettes on the track side. They turned the steel frame into a lamp fixture as well as the glass railings and guides. We finished the first part on time and the station can open as planned. Now we will complete the last part of the project.


    Bright, fresh and high ceilings

    We have been sitting in our forging workshop by Bällstaån since the 70s. In recent years, there has been a transformation of the industrial area into housing, parks and walkways and it is not so strange that we have to move away from our dear forging workshop. But, a new forging workshop in Bromma is waiting for us. It is light, fresh and has a high ceiling height. When the rebuilding of the public spaces is complete, we will start moving in and in February the move will be completed.

    Eezer - Kenyaresor

    It is a very special feeling that arises when we get to be involved and make a difference. It is a warm feeling in the heart that occurs when Eezer's ambulance ambulances transform a person's day from horrible to fantastic. Seeing the results of Eezer's work on site in Africa is an indescribable feeling. This is exactly what both Javier and Richard experienced when they went on a follow-up trip with Eezer in August.

    For two years we have been involved in Eezer. Among other things, we have built ambulance carriages in our forging workshop that currently runs in Africa and trained local people in Burundi in building carriages. Regardless of whether you have contributed with concrete efforts or not, it is we together who make it possible for us to get involved in Eezer.


    Our projects

    In August, the Fridhemsplan project was full. In addition, we installed wrought iron gates and railings at the Turkish Embassy, made metal glass sections for Bromma Church, interior forging, variations and wine rack. We also continued with the corten facade on Biskoppsudden. Three full welding courses also started.

    With charged batteries, we look forward to this autumn's exciting project within forge & glass and to row together the move to new fresh premises. Autumn 2019 will be a fun autumn - now we're driving!

    Current dates in September 2019

    • Thursday 5 September Deadline salary
    • Tuesday 17 September at 06.30-11.30 Massage in the lunch room floor 2
    • Wednesday 25 September salary payment

  • Monthly newsletter July 2019 - everything in forging & glass

    The forging workshop is in full swing! We manufacture wrought iron railings, door sections, napkin rings, wine racks, wrought iron gates. In addition, we install beams and sheet metal walls out on the construction site. We fight for everything to roll on according to set time frames. Everyone does a great job!

    Exciting times

    We have a busy month ahead of us with forging jobs under tight schedules. That we cooperate in a good way towards the goal is required for us to be able to perform at the top. The curtain facade for the new star restaurant on Biskoppsudden will also be completed. Right now, Eddings is working on a major forging job at Lidl under the management of Valle, and soon they will start manufacturing restaurant furnishings.

    Teamwork

    We are charging for the follow-up trips to Kenya with Eezer as two representatives from Lundgren's will follow Eezer's work and its development on site. They will visit clinics and organizations that Eezer cooperates to reduce maternal mortality in African rural areas. In addition, they will follow up already delivered motorcycle ambulances that transport pregnant women to clinics when they are about to give birth. It will be exciting to follow their inner and outer journey with high-flying, emotionally touching encounters, adorable Eezer babies and the occasional giraffe!

    Meeting with three Eezer babies May 2018

    In addition, we are preparing for the move to our new workshop. Some rebuilding of the premises will take place before we move over parts of the business.

    Everyone can weld!

    Even if you have never held a weld before, you can easily learn to weld. Come on our welding evenings and you will see! Sure, it takes a little practice. But, if you take a welding course with our skilled blacksmiths as a course leader, you will be so sure that after eight meetings you pass a welder test and get your first welding certificate. For those of you who can already weld and want to build, for example, a candlestick or a table, we will open up our forging workshop for metal handicraft. For more information and registration see here or contact tell us more. Once you have started welding, you do not want to stop!

    A tip for a fun competition!

    Every month, everyone can contribute to the picture of the month. The winner is published in our monthly newsletter. Other photos are published in our social media and on the website. We receive pictures ranging from our projects in forging and glass to pictures of our wonderful gang. Feel free to follow us Facebook, Instagram, Linkedin then you get to take part in life at Lundgrens. The winning entry for July was presented by Fathi with the image "Visual inspection of weld". Congratulations!

    Finally

    Whether you work or have a holiday, take the opportunity to suck out the last of the summer! Sun, cooling baths from sun-warmed rocks, soft ice cream in abundance and balmy evenings with barbecues with loved ones are wonderful! In addition, it will give you extra energy!

    Have a nice summer!

  • Monthly newsletter June 2019 - everything in forging & glass

    From the fact that it was tough to succeed with the sales at the beginning of the year until we got into some big projects. Therefore, we have loaded with resources because it will be an intense period. This summer we are open as usual and we are grateful that we have staff who help us cope with the summer peak. Right now we have the capacity to take fast forging jobs like that Contact Us if you need help with anything.

    A summer greeting

    Before many people take a holiday, I want to take the opportunity to send a summer greeting. First of all, I want to thank our fantastic employees who fight with us every day to achieve our goals. Without you, we would never be able to deliver world-class wrought iron and glass! To our growing gang, we welcome the blacksmiths Nasim, Anibal and Mathiaz as well as project manager Martin. Thank you to everyone who applied for a job with us. We have a continuing need for staff within the group, so tip, spread & search ours Available positions! Last but not least, a big thank you to all new and old customers for the trust!

    Take the opportunity to enjoy the summer and recharge your batteries before the autumn. Take advantage of those moments that give you new energy. We look forward to an autumn filled with new challenges - new workshop, Kenya trips, metal crafts, team travel, exciting projects in forging & glass and other fun.

    Our new forging workshop

    Now we have finally found a new forging workshop! It is located in Bromma and we will have access in July. We will fix the premises and then we will gradually move our business. 

    Efforts to reduce maternal mortality

    In August, our doers Javier and Richard will each go on a follow-up trip to Kenya to visit clinics and organizations that Eezer collaborates to reduce maternal mortality. They will follow up on already delivered motorcycle ambulances that transport pregnant women to clinics in the African countryside. We also sponsored a travel scholarship that was awarded to Bike Babes member Ulrika Bohlin who we believe will be an excellent Eezeram ambassador. Congratulations on your Kenya trip!

    5 S improvement factory

    Before the summer we drove spring 5 S-day and shoved away what we have a hard time keeping up with in everyday life. This summer we take a break from our 5 S meetings. However, it is important that we maintain the good order we have created so that we do not have to start again from step 1 until the autumn.

    Our projects

    In June, there was full focus on our ongoing projects in forging and glass. There were crop beams, glass walls and door sections going on. We made additions to existing doors at NKS. A team installed an ALU ramp and door frames. Other projects we worked on were assembly of door sections in Uppsala, forging work for NCC and Bonava. Furthermore, we continued with the wine cabinets to Magnusson Fine wine. We also continued with the curtain facade to the new star restaurant on Biskopsudden and the corner guards on SÖS.

    We will soon start with the manufacture of wrought iron railings, door sections and a sheet metal cladding of a loading dock. 

    The brothers Edding's Forging

    The brothers Eddings Smide worked with restaurant furnishings for Janax Snickeri. The fan room in Norra huset to kv Stettin was completed. They then continued with the assembly in Södra huset and various extra forging jobs. Furthermore, Eddings began assembling plates for two terraces at Gärdesskolan. They also started manufacturing a new floor in Bromma. Another project that Eddings worked on was two trellis for Viksjö Centrum. Soon, the iron gang will help SH-Bygg with two platforms.

  • Monthly newsletter May 2019 - everything in forging & glass

    Wow, wow, wow what time goes by and I only have time for half of everything I have on hand !! A feeling that I think many have now. Precisely because May is a hectic month with many deadlines at the same time as it is a lot of fun that happens with school graduations, holiday planning, etc. With summer at the door, it is important to prioritize what is most important and put a reasonable level of ambition on what you have on hand. Because then it always works out!

    Take the chance and join an adventure trip to Kenya

    Getting from home to a clinic to get qualified help in childbirth is a major challenge in many parts of the world. Many women often die unnecessarily because they do not have time to arrive on time. With Swedish design, know-how and local materials are manufactured Eezers motorcycle ambulances that save lives in the African countryside. Now we're looking for one Lundgrenare who gets the chance to join one of Eezer's follow-up trips to Kenya in August. During the trip, some already delivered crews in i.a. Masaai Mara is followed up. On the trip, a doer is needed who can help fix a motorcycle tow. It will be an inner and outer adventure trip and I promise that it is an indescribable feeling to make a difference on the spot! Do you want to join? Then you must register your interest with us.

    Many new faces

    It's full to the brim our forging workshop and even more will be this summer. We solve this with new hires and hired staff. I often hear from new employees that they receive a pleasant welcome when they come to us and that you are happy and helpful. That if anything makes us proud!

    We are looking for a project manager

    It's full of shops inside forge and glass which we want to capture! Therefore, we are looking for more project managers who want to work with parts or the whole within project management. So feel free to suggest and share that we are looking for a project manager! Or apply here.

    A day filled with benefit and pleasure

    Finally, it's time for Lundgren's spring 5 S-day! This time we will drive in groups and push away what is difficult to catch up on in the 5 S-hits. Constantly striving to remove and simplify is important for us to succeed in creating a better and safer workplace with higher well-being and better profitability.

    In the evening there will be a summer party when we drive an old goodie with pentathlon on Grönan. It will be a fast-paced evening with 5-fight, rides, food and music.

    Health examination

    Now almost all health examinations have been carried out.

    Teamwork

    When assembling, situations sometimes arise that require a little extra thought. Such a situation arose recently when Dominykas and the gang were to assemble a tricky table construction. Then the knowledge that was in the team and the ability to work out solutions together was very valuable.

    "Put your hand in mine and we will be strong together, we will be weak together, we will be together!"

    Our projects

    In May, the assignments took turns in the tenant-owner association Älgskyttaren in Fredhäll. First there was a balcony installation and then a wrought iron railing, a bicycle ramp, repair of elevator nets and installation of a railing modification through eight floors. Jimmy and Micke tore at SÖS with the rubber-coated wrists and the crash protection in stainless steel. The last piece of lightweight beam was mounted in the Audi garage. Wrangel Palace received an elegant leather-wrapped railing in wrought iron and a curtain rail. There was even more work at KS with door frames for all metal doors. The wine compartments to the wine place Grape to Magnusson Fine Wine rolled on according to plan. Finally, the brass jobs at NK were completed.

    In May, we also started installing door sections at Arlanda and we started welding work at Bromma Airport. Almost all extra forging jobs were completed in the Käppala treatment plant.

    We also manufactured a steel stand for signs for Barkabystaden. The noise barrier in Älvsjö was almost completed. The work with the corten facade for the restaurant on Biskoppsudden went well with Javier as supervisor. Finally, the job with the glass cafeteria is in the final stages.

    Finally, we made wrought iron details, beams, gears, columns and steel doors. We also had time for a table base, a barbecue stand, a canopy and wrought iron railings.

    This summer it will be forge and world-class ice cream! The second stage with door sections on KS, collision protection, derailleurs, wrought iron fences, steel doors, a specially ordered wrought iron railing and a lot of special wrought iron awaits.

    The brothers Edding's Forging

    In May mounted Eddings facade panels for two fan rooms for kv Stettin, which will be completed in June. In Tomteboda, they built two steel stairs. Furthermore, they helped Bygg Partner to manufacture grate gutters. They also installed corten steel in Gröndal. In June, Edding's will secretly start the new project Gärdesskolan with Erlandsson Bygg as the builder.
