The history of Standardbolag
Lawyer Gustaf Bertil Ihrman, the founder of Svenska Standardbolag AB, had his office in the ”Ihrman villa” in Falun and operated comprehensive legal services during the years of 1921–1953.
After the war, there was less work in his business, and Ihrman tried to find a new focus of his business. He wanted it to be related to his marketing studies at ”Columbia University School of Business” in New York 1921.
In the year of 1944, after the new Limited Companies act was taken, Ihrman saw an opportunity to realize his idea of off-the-shelf companies
The business activities were conducted through S-bolagen AB until 1954, when the company Svenska Standardbolag AB was formed.
The artist Stig Sonesson, Stockholm, was the company’s PR-man during G B Ihrman’s time. He created the scroll, which is still used in some prints.
In 1970 the banker Olof Brovall and the accountant Sören Thunström took over the company from G B Ihrman, who was retiring from old age. The company has, during the years, evolved into Sweden’s leading company in company services and operates in Falun, Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmoe. Svenska standardbolag’s head office is located in Falun and in the aforementioned “Ihrman villa”, Depona now has a part of its business.
Today, the executive director of Svenska Standardbolag is Erik Berggren and Olof Brovall owns the entire company to 100%. The company has offices in Falun, Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö. The number of employees has increased to around 30.
