In the early 1990s, Sweden went through the worst financial crisis it has experienced in recent history. This was the moment when Anders Englund and Kurt Tingdal decided it was time to, with the help of a typewriter and a toolbox, start their own company. Many prophets of doom thought they were out of their minds, especially as they intended to keep production local rather than moving it overseas to save money. Fast- forward almost 30 years, and it seems as if Englund and Tingdal were right to trust their hearts and follow their instincts.
