The story of Jernbro

Jernbro has its origin in our in-depth knowledge of industrial services. The word bridge symbolizes our knowledge transfer to you and our other customers, which also is reinforced by our logo

But there is also another dimension. The name can also be traced back to the end of the eighteenth century, when the world’s first iron bridge was built in a village in the southwest of England. The village was called Ironbridge and is today known as the birthplace of the industrial revolution. The bridge is still there today. So, the name Jernbro reflects our competence, closeness to our customers and the industries we work in.

Our history

Jernbro has its origin in a number of different companies. Our modern history starts in 2005 as part of Coor Service Management.

In 2023, the electrical installation company Tvåman El AB will be a strong addition to Jernbro’s Elkraftgrupp in Avesta. In the same year, the remaining 30% of Svenska GMK AB is transferred to Jernbro.

In 2022, GISAB (Gällivare Industriservice AB) becomes a part of Jernbro. The acquisition entails a mutual strengthening of local presence, capacity and range of services for industrial customers in Norrbotten. In the same year, GISAB acquires JF Mek AB, which strengthens our local presence and capacity in Kiruna. We are also expanding our operations in southern Sweden through the acquisition of Reppu Svets & Montage AB.

In 2021, Saltec and Saltec International as well as 70% of the shares in Svenska GMK AB are acquired. All based in Gothenburg. In the same year, the Automation unit was sold to EA Mobile Robotics.

In 2020, we acquire SMTE Teknik in Borlänge. The investment company Bluewater becomes the new main owner of Jernbro instead of Aksiom Partners.

In 2016, Coor Industrial Services changes its name to Jernbro Industrial Services. In the same year, Veolia Industrial Maintenance (which will be acquired by us in 2019) takes over Ferroweld i Östergötland AB, which works with project and service services for industries, properties and energy and water treatment plants.


In 2015, Coor Industrial Services will be separated from the rest of Coor and will continue to operate as an independent umbrella company within Cinven.

2005 to 2014

In 2005, the investment in industrial service within Coor began through the acquisition of AB Volvo’s service company Celero.

During the initial years, the business grew mainly through acquisitions. These include SAPA Industriservice (2008) in Finspång and Skultuna and EuroMaint Industry (2011) in Skövde and Huskvarna. These units are still strongholds within Jernbro.

During the latter part, the business grew more through takeovers and shaped the backbone of today’s Jernbro with a large number of committed and competent employees located in several locations in Sweden.

The venture capital company Cinven Ltd acquired the company from 3i 2007.
