30 years of progression
Scanreco dates back to 1984 when the company was first established in Södertälje, a city south of Stockholm, Sweden.
One of our first tasks was to develop wireless point-to-point systems for the Swedish defense industry.
From an early stage we started replacing cable remote controls on truck/loader cranes and retrofitted them with
radio remote controls. Soon we realized that no one had really explored this area and since then, radio remote
control systems for knuckle boom cranes and other mobile machinery have been our primary focus.
Over the years more and more of the leading manufacturers of mobile truck/loader cranes discovered our proposition
– as an OEM partner delivering reliable and secure professional radio remote control systems to international
crane and machinery manufacturers. This has been our key to success and is still our core business today,
though several other mobile application manufacturers have discovered Scanreco as a supplier of radio
remote controls for various mobile applications.
Today, you can find Scanreco products in every part of the world. Our global presence allows us to work with the
world’s leading crane and machinery manufacturers. Working with a modern supply chain philosophy and logistics
operations guaranties fast and flexible deliveries to our clients around the globe.
Our R&D department ensure that we always deliver cutting-edge technology. Thirty years of progression have
given us knowledge and experience of markets at different stages of technical development, wherewe can offer
guidance and help to incubate our clients’ ideas.
