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 .

Monthly newsletter June 2020 - everything in forging & glass

Holidays - we are open all summer! 

Now it's holiday time, but we are open as usual for our forging jobs do not take holidays. Some days bring with them increased pressure that we hope you can understand. We do our best to have time to answer all exciting inquiries.

Welcome to the gang!

A warm welcome to our new blacksmiths Pablo and Bassam! We also welcome Viktor who went one welding course this spring and who is with us to try out the profession. 

Several Available positions

The high demand for forging and glass means that we need to replenish our strength with even more staff. We are looking for blacksmiths within finsmide which can dress glass sections in various materials such as brass and copper. Builders and fitters in both Stockholm and Norrköping are also needed. In addition, we are looking for project managers who know sheet metal and forge. 

Working with us means a fun job in many different types of projects, both in size and in character. We always strive to achieve the best results and exceed customer expectations. It requires teams with a strong community and a culture characterized by commitment, personal responsibility, interest, technical know-how and cooperation.

Do you want to become one of us? Then you should fill in this form. More information coming soon Available positions on our website. 

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. 

Another flash of light is Martin's record sales! Hard work and focus on customer relationships gave a brilliant result! Congratulations to our star salesman who got home store after store!

Monthly newsletter December 2018 - everything in forging & glass

Good continuation!

Many enjoy time off while there are some brave ones who hold the positions in the forging workshop. Soon we will put an end to another chapter in Lundgrens 66-year history. Like life, 2018 consisted of highs and lows and everyday life in between. A highlight was Eddings fantastic development. Under the leadership of Adam, the iron gang managed to turn around the poor result and double the turnover. We see that the company has a good potential to develop further. On the other hand, it was tough to succeed with the sales in step with our investment with new project managers Lundgrens. Finding forms of cooperation, getting into the match and rowing home business takes time. A receipt that we are on the right track was when our new stars started ringing the order bell!

When the order bell rings at the workshop

So to some goodies during the year. IN 5 S we took over a hundred steps on the way to the goal of a better and safer workplace with higher well-being and better profitability. We followed Eezer to Kenya, Tanzania and Burundi to reduce maternal mortality. With our own eyes, we saw that the motorcycle ambulances are used and save lives in the African countryside. We taught locals in Burundi to build ambulances. Our forging teams made fun and memorable teamresor around Europe. It is difficult to summarize everything but you can read more in our monthly letter. The winning entries in the competition Picture of the month are a few moments that will stick in the memory. Here are the winners:

SEK 2,500 - anyone?

After our trip to Burundi Andree started manufacturing his first motorcycle ambulance. He sees a great need for the wagons. Unfortunately, production stopped when he, among other things. need tires and various materials to be able to continue. If you want to help Contact Us. I promise that it is an indescribable feeling to be part of making the world a little better!  

Do you want to help Andree so he can continue to make ambulances in Burundi?

What can we improve in our environment?

Recently, everyone got to answer the question: What do you think we do that is worst for the environment? Many responded to transport and driving and that we throw away material instead of reusing it. In 2019, we will work systematically with environmental issues. The goal is for us to certify ourselves according to ISO 14001 to live up to concrete and recognized environmental requirements.

The move

It is not clear what will happen to the move. We are waiting to be told if we can stay for a while longer. If we need to move, we will look for premises in the northern part and today there are premises for rent. If you know someone who is looking for a collaboration, wants to sell a plot or a workshop, feel free to contact us Richard.

Economy news

The budget for 2019 was ready. The goal is for us to sell for SEK 65 million Lundgrens and on Eddings we are aiming for SEK 30 million. Just in time for New Year, we were able to make the year's final payment of performance salaries to our performance owners.

Our projects

In December became Eddings finished with the stairs to Drottninggatan. The customer Construera was very satisfied! The large spiral staircase in Gröndal was also completed. The facade forging to Bredängen center continued and they made a lead cabinet for NKS. They received an extra order for a railing that they started manufacturing. They also received more railings for JM's building in Kallhäll. Weather permitting, they will start assembling some ground railings to Viksjö center.

On Lundgrens continued blue team with forged at Jägarbacken. The red team mounted two glass sections on Tegeluddsvägen. They continued with glascaféterian and mounted a glass wall on Ringvägen 100. Furthermore, the team mounted one steel stairs and an internal staircase. They also made sliding glass and brass doors for Hotell Gamla Stan. The green team manufactured railings, glass frames and rebuilt a floor plan. They made door frames for two wooden doors and made pram ramps. Furthermore, the team did finsmide in the form of lamp fixtures in brass. They also made the last copper-clad metal glass part for Husfrun. Since the start, we have made about 60 glass sections, most of which are made in our forging workshop. All metal sections have been clad with copper, which has then been given a green color through artificial patination. An outstanding result! Gula team made stainless steel railings and continued with steel glass sections to NKV at Karolinska University Hospital Solna. They also started with a stainless steel staircase and a stainless steel railing for Käppala as well as forging for the DHL entrance building.

A few glimpses of projects that are in the starting pit - manufacturing of railings for St. John's Church, wine racks, welding jobs at Bromma Airport and corten plates for a new restaurant on Biskoppsudden.

The roads to the goal

2019 means a great challenge for us. No road is straight, but with our cruel gang, we feel safe. Collaboration is the key to success. and together we will be able to continue to develop and deliver world-class forging. The door is ajar, so step in with us and see what 2019 has to offer. With this, we at Lundgren's customers, suppliers, colleagues and friends want one

Forging details

We at Lundgrens do most things within forge and glass. Everything from larger beam jobs to smaller forging details. Our projects differ in both size and character. This is what is often the charm of working with us. Just the variation, that it is rarely monotonous. 

Here are some wrought iron details from Jumkils Church where old becomes new. You also see reinforcement beams for kv Kabeln.
