About us

Although our expertise and knowledge have taken us out into the world, it is not our aim to conquer it. Our goal is to win your trust and that of our customers – in that way we strive to be Sweden’s best company within automation, electrical installation and alarm systems.

We are now at the start of a number of megatrends that will affect all aspects of our lives. This applies to us as individuals as well as to our companies. Development in areas such as digitalisation, interconnection, automation and robotics have already radically changed both our homes and our workplaces. This is the world in which Provektor works to contribute to development and profitability for our customers.

Since 1949, Provektor has made the transition from a classical electricity company to today’s modern company providing complete solutions within automation, electrical installation and alarm systems. We still serve both individuals and companies, and a large proportion of our customers work in industry and the real estate and construction sector. Our base is in the heart of Skaraborg but we are also used to planning, designing and manufacturing for export. Through our customers, we have entered markets in Europe, Asia and North America.

In recent years we have grown through both acquisitions and new hires, and we now have more than one hundred committed employees spread across seven locations in Skaraborg. By continuing to work close to our customers, we retain the flexibility and personal touch of a small business while also offering the capacity of a large company. The company is still privately-owned and independent of any chain.

One success factor is our way of working with key staff within Provektor. These people are natural project managers and reliable points of contact for our customers, which is much appreciated. Clear areas of responsibility and authority also mean that we can always guarantee to deliver complete solutions with high quality and reliability of delivery. This enables us to build long-term customer relationships – just the way we like it.
