“If we didn’t meet and talk to people on a daily basis at Sweden’s
many workplaces, how would we be able to understand their needs and then create products that simplify their work?”
Eric and Signe Rahmqvist
(founders of Rahmqvist AB, year 1953)
At Rahmqvist Work we are specialists in protection products and specialised equipment for heavy use at demanding workplaces. We work continuously with product development to get unique and durable products. Products designed to meet high demands on functionality, quality and comfort for everybody who wants to feel safe and secure at work – whether it is within construction or other demanding workplaces. Rahmqvist Work is a specialised brand within the Rahmqvist group.
Our philosophy is simple. As specialists it is our responsibility to be by your side. That is why you can only purchase our products when we visit your workplace. Thus you don’t risk buying the wrong products or missing something you need. Nor do we leave you to your own devices with the products but help with instructions and advice. Quite simply we believe in long-term relationships and close collaboration. And we do all this at no charge. So, when shall we meet?

As far as possible we always act from an environmental viewpoint in our choice of materials and production methods. We invest in quality instead of throwaway and we were the first in the field to be certified for environment and quality simultaneously according to ISO. A more concrete example is our Knee Pads which of course are non-toxic and don’t contain phthalates or other plasticizers that are harmful to the environment. So that’s how we think, on both a large and small scale, and you can too.
Design inspired by you
We meet hundreds of people every day in all imaginable branches and discuss their needs, problems and wishes. We take this knowledge back home to our designers and product developers.
Our range is growing and our business is constantly expanding. We need more colleagues. To work with us at Rahmqvist Work and within the Rahmqvist group means great freedom and good career opportunities. At the same time you will get the satisfaction of helping people all over Europe to make their workday a little bit better.
We believe in knowledge, curiosity and consideration for both our clients and each other. That is why we started Rahmqvist College 25 years ago – our own business college. Today it is the Nordic area’s best if you ask us. Here the employees get the chance to develop and profit from our most experienced colleagues’ knowledge.
Rahmqvist Foundation Centre
For us sustainability is also about showing responsibility for each other. That is why we support children in South Africa.You can too!
Care for each other
For us sustainability is all about showing care at all levels. We believe it is equally important to care about each other as it is to care about our environment. This applies to you as a client which will become apparent to you. It also applies to all of us here at the company through training, personnel activities and keep-fit activities. We are also sponsors of Goodsport, a foundation that improves the possibilities for sports in society. But it also concerns helping those parts of the world that are going through difficult times. We are therefore promoters and contributors to the orphanage Rahmqvist Foundation Centre in South Africa. Here children are given the opportunity to have a secure childhood with nutritious food, clean drinking water, their own beds, education and everything else that children need - not least to be able to laugh and play.
