For years, Nordplåt has been one of Scandinavia's leading manufacturers of high-quality and elegant steel frames for timber doors. With our customer-focused design department and flexible production, special solutions are a particular strength of ours. Our efficient and quality-assured manufacturing processes have generated many great references. These include a number of large and complex hospital projects.

Our production programme also includes corner guards, wall ending covers and wall guards for exposed parts of buildings.

We work with our partner Caverion to develop and build cleanrooms for pharmaceuticals and biotech research and manufacturing.  We are very flexible in adapting our production processes to meet our customers' needs.

We develop and make chimney covers in close consultation with our customers. Our covers and components have been gradually improved, and they are now probably among the best on the market.

We are also available for contract manufacturing, for example individual components or complete thin steel sheet structures, in most widespread sheet metals. Customers for these special products are most commonly from the construction sector and from the mechanical manufacturing industry.



Karl Johan Svedberg, founder of the company which now operates as Nordplåt Carmen AB in Strömsund. It all started when Karl Johan found out that a new hospital was planned for Östersund, and that various kinds of metal parts would be needed, including steel frames for timber doors. The year was 1969 and this was the start of Nordplåt in Strömsund.

The steel frames business was developed over the years, with new products added and others falling by the wayside. Nordplåt started container production in Östersund, but this ended in the mid-1980s. Cleanroom manufacturing started in the 1990s and this remains a very important product for Nordplåt.

Karl Johan Svedberg was also a great lover of opera and his favourite of all was Carmen. That is why Carmen is a part of this company’s name, formed in 1993. Intriguingly, there is a painting in the office depicting Carmen and our steel frames, called the "Steel Carmen".

In June 2014 Karl Johan, through his company KJ Svedberg Invest AB, sold the shares in Nordplåt Carmen AB to Nya Plåtprodukter i Strömsund AB which is owned by Femper AB, through Eva and Per Stjernström. Alongside the change of ownership, PPS’s chimney cover production was also incorporated into Nordplåt.
The transfer took place in December 2014. This process expanded our machinery, and the company now manufactures three separate products: steel frames, chimney covers and cleanrooms.
