With over 40 years of experience in machine safety the founders of SSP North talk your language. We know how complex your industry might look and how modular the safety solutions needs to be. That’s why SSP North exists.
Mats Linger, CEO and majority share holder
Since my graduation, MSc, at Chalmers University of Technology, I have been very focused on machine safety.
I started with type inspection of presses and power shears, the most dangerous machines in those days. Thereafter I did a lot of research in robot safety and shared that experience as a representative for Sweden in the International standards for Industrial Robots and in other working groups. One result of that research was the three position enabling device.
My mission during inspection and reserch was and still is to make machine safety easy and production friendly.
Together with two partners in 1988, we started up the company Jokab Safety AB where we invented and developed safety products in order to make it easier to make safety systems. I also continued my work as a Swedish representative in the international standards for Industrial Robots, Automatic Machinery and Safety Circuits (EN 13849-2).
During the years with Jokab Safety we sold a lot of safety products and systems all over the world and made our brand known for machine safety. We also got many partners and the main partner was Jokab Safety Germany. In 2010 we sold the company to ABB AB and they kept the name of the brand Jokab Safety for the safety products.
As I still had a strong interest in machine safety and new ideas to make it even easier to build safe systems, I wanted to continue my work. In 2016, I therefore started SSP North AB based on the idea for Safety Simplifier, a project I started in 2014. I did this together with a designer, an experienced team in embedded safety and wireless communication, a new software engineer for a user-friendly communication and SSP GmbH for the market orientation. SSP GmbH was started 2013 by Johann Aulila, a long term relation since he had Jokab Safety in Germany, which also was sold to ABB 2010.
It has been and still is very stimulating to develop this new concept, Safety Simplifier, together with a young and enthusiastic team.
Together we will continue the work to Simplify Safety and to make safety production friendly.
