Svensk Konstruktionstjänst AB were established in 1971 by Stig Kervefors and Stig Broms. They had met at Sikob, a company where they worked together with Stig’s younger brother, Åke Kervefors. Stig Kervefors was involved in building and completely modernising the rope-operated excavators of the time with the help of hydraulics. During 1971, Stig Kervefors and Stig Broms took the step of starting their own business, and in 1992, Åke Kervefors took over the company. In 2004, Johan Lantz was brought on board as the company’s CEO, while Åke Kervefors has stayed on as CFO.
