In 1995 four entrepreneurs founded Aritco in a living room in Kungsängen outside Stockholm. All four had experience in the elevator business, and all agreed that there was a need for a new kind of product that was smarter to use and easier to install, easier to operate and significantly less expensive than the elevators that were on the market back then.
The four, all engineers, built their first elevator by hand. And the rest is what we say, history. After having passed through two factories in Kungsängen, Aritco is now based in a 16.000 sqm large factory and office in Veddesta outside Stockholm. Today we produce 4.000 elevators a year that are sold in 40 countries through more than 170 distributors.
