Increased demands from foreign markets led to Gefa System outgrowing their previous facilities. Gefa System, with their base in Gällivare in Swedish Lapland, is a company specialised in industrial automation and ventilation control. Their largest customers are based in Northern Sweden and Africa. The construction of the new facilities, that started in fall 2017, is a large investment. The new premises contains offices, conference rooms, personnel facilities and a large workshop where a new development and testing facility is being housed.

– We outgrew our previous offices and have been in need of a workshop for a long time. As the demand for our products has increased, we have come to a point where we have to be able to test and develop our products at a faster pace. In the new facilities, we want to design a development and testing department to meet the needs of new and existing customers, says Ulf Karlsson, CEO.


Gefa System delivers ventilation control systems for LKAB, among others, and have done so since 1999.

They also provide many of the municipalities in northern Sweden with automation systems for treatment plants. But even though many of their larger customers are based in Norrbotten, Gefa System have quickly grown strong on foreign markets. The main product they export is burner systems for industries.

– Our burners have many advantages, they consume less energy and leave much less waste products. We have received large orders from Zambia, Namibia and Chile and the demand is constantly increasing, says Ulf Karlsson.

Gefa System has concluded an agreement with Luleå Technotrade, which sells the products on export to, among other things, the Australian market. The new facilities allow for continued development and increased exports. The new premises were first taken into use in April 2018, the total area is 600 sqm.
