Sandberg Development is either a sole owner or co-owner of Aimpoint, GAIM, Granuldisk, RESCUE Intellitech, SWATAB, ISEC Monitoring Systems, Orbital Systems, Drupps and publicly listed Camurus.

Founded in 1959, Sandberg Development today has more than 60 years of experience in transforming innovative ideas into successful companies. For 40 years, we have had our roots in Jägersro in Malmö. Through growth, property acquisitions and investments, the company has steadily expanded and today we have our own innovation district, Sandberg Valley. This is where several of the group’s subsidiaries and associated companies are located, including offices, production sites, and lab and demo operations. We are convinced that a shared meeting place fosters knowledge exchange, innovation and well-being. Sandberg Valley also boasts a first-class restaurant that serves a selection of daily lunch options and can be booked as a venue for a simple Swedish “fika” or other events.

Our focus on developing Swedish innovations as a springboard for successful products and companies serves as the foundation of our group.
