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.
At Jernbro you get access to a wealth of resources. We have mechanics, electricians, engineers and many other co-workers who serve industry. All with extensive experience of technology, improvements and Swedish industry. Long relationships and a great commitment have led to broad and deep knowledge in industries such as engineering, steel, mining, food, petrochemicals, distribution and purification of water, plastic and rubber, wood, paper and pulp and energy.
