Åkerströms Björbo AB has recently received a large order for a remote-control system from SSAB in Borlänge, Sweden, the world leader in manufacturing high-strength steel. The order is for Åkerströms’ Sesam 800 system, a robust remote-control system that will replace existing older Åkerströms systems used for opening/closing all of SSAB’s industrial doors and gates.

The Sesam 800 system includes the Large 99 transmitter, which can open/close up to 999 doors/gates, associated brackets and wall-mounted receivers. The transmitters are placed in the production facility’s forklift trucks that retrieve and deliver goods so drivers can open/close the doors/gates by simply pushing a button.

“We are very pleased that SSAB continues to place their trust in us and recognizes us as a preferred supplier of quality-assured, robust remote control for their doors and gates,” says Anna Stiwne, CEO of Åkerströms Björbo AB. “We have worked with SSAB since the birth of radio remote control in the early 1960s, and this is further proof that Åkerströms is a brand with a good reputation that is well-known for high-quality radio solutions and sustainable, close customer relationships.”
