Two northern companies participate in Bygglyftet

Piteå Two companies in northern Sweden are participating in the national development program Bygglyftet, aimed at companies in the construction industry.

The two installation companies that have now joined Bygglyftet are the Skellefteå company Nordelectro, which is now part of the Comfort chain, and the Piteå company Infjärdens Värme, or Ivab. Nordelectro has installed fast chargers across the country and is responsible for all power installations at Northvolt in Skellefteå. Ivab has carried out major pipe work for Boliden, Hybrit, Sunpine and Kaunis Iron in Pajala.

"Everything with Bygglyftet feels inspiring! But I especially look forward to building a learning organization that creates success by continuously renewing its way of working," says Mari Nilsson, CEO of Ivab.

Bygglyftet is a national development program initiated by the industry and employer organizations Installatörsföretagen and Byggföretagen. It will give companies in the construction and installation industry better conditions to operate and grow in a changing world. The focus is on strengthening competence in sustainability, digitization and so-called Lean Construction, which aims to improve customer benefit and minimize the consumption of resources through efficiency improvements and rationalization.

"The Bygglyftet initiative comes at just the right time. The green transition is in full swing and is fundamentally changing our society. This requires new skills and the ability to run companies in a fast-moving way. The companies that invest despite tough times will be strong when we come out on the other side," says Ola Månsson, CEO of Installatörsföretagen, which is one of the organizations behind the development program.

In the fall of 2024, Bygglyftet will be launched on a broad front, opening up to more companies in the industry.
