About Expandermetall

Expanded Metal with company Expandermetall has since 1972 built a unique centre of competence for the development and production of expanded metal products. The company has for three generations worked towards offering products of high quality both to the domestic and international market. Today about half of the company’s production is exported abroad. Our strength is to help you, as our customer, to find the best solution that fits your technical needs and your requirements of cost-efficiency.

Our production of expanded metal started 1972 but the company was founded in 1960 under the name BilCity (“CarCity”), offering new and used cars and car repairs. At the end of the 1960’s the car sales part of the company was sold and a machine for expanding metal was bought. A couple of years later the production of expanded metal started, and in 1972 the company changed its name to Expandermetall AB. In 1978 it moved to its current location in Hestra, Sweden. The company was then owned by Sixten Andersson, but in 1988 Christer Horte took over.

Today it is Christer’s son Andreas Holmberg that owns and manages Expandermetall. The company is located in Hestra, just outside Tranås, and enjoys the proximity to Jönköping and Linköping. We have several flexible
subcontractors close by, and enjoy excellent communications in all directions.

Expandermetall AB is certified according to the FR2000 standard, for quality environment and work environment.
