How we got here
Young veteran Kim Ekblad has worked with stage and event technology in the entertainment industry since the millennium started. When he in 2015 came in contact with the Danish company Priebe Sceneteknik A/S –founded during the 1960s— they together decided to launch a Swedish subsidiary called Priebe Scenteknik AB.
The Swedish offspring company quickly got momentum and grew steadily, becoming one of the leading stage-tech companies in the Scandinavian market. In late 2017 the company parted way with the Danish parent company and became fully independent as Kim partnered up with fellow Dutch-Swedish entrepreneur Aart Gigengack.
Meanwhile, Aart had been working within the same line of business since 2012, building the well-established sales company Scan-Rig AB. The two companies had already been cooperating for some time, complementing each other with their well-developed project and sales divisions respectively. Through a corporate merger, the two companies became one, Priebe-ScanRig AB (PSRIG), effective January 1st, 2019.
2019 – A year that flew by
The following year was quite hectic in terms of contracts, and the company invested heavily to capitalize on the market potential. Some of the investments included: acquiring new competence to the team, doubling the size of the Norrköping facilities (with a larger testing area, showroom, warehouse, workshop, and packing station with a new loading platform), additional new larger vehicles, a fresh new graphic profile, a comprehensive new web presence “PSRIG.com” and a new telephone exchange that gathered the communication paths.
2020-2021 – World turbulence but thankfully staying busy
What followed next during 2020 and 2021 was rough in general for the whole world, but our company managed to –somewhat unexpectedly– prosper during this period through our awesome project department. Many cultural establishments kept closed during this time, so we got to work renovating and supplying new upper and lower stage machinery as well as installing new seating solutions. We stayed really busy and even managed to move our home base again. Although it was just around the corner with the same address, we moved into an even larger premise with fresh and functional interiors, a lot more room, and excellent logistical opportunities. Not to forget, we got a lot more new colleagues by moving in with our friends and partners in the industry collective #CreativeIndustriesSweden.

Together with our friends and partners in the industry collective #CreativeIndustriesSweden, we share the same roof and Norrköping address but have our own designated warehouse, workshop, and office areas. The companies we proudly share our stronghold with are:
- PADAB (renting out sound, lighting, AV, and stage equipment)

- United Vision (offering expertise in music, tour, and event production).
- We are also happy to have some smaller companies in our office space working in accounting, sound engineering, and visual media.
The collaboration means that we are able to collaborate on projects in-house seamlessly and offer even more clients a total solution for all their entertainment needs.
We have also broaden our geographical coverage by moving to a larger sales office in Malmö and expanding with a new sales office in Halmstad.
So with multiple new products in development, new exciting projects booked, our beloved #CreativeIndustriesSweden collaboration up and running, a total of three sales offices, and newly hired competence acquired to the company – we meet the future stronger than ever.
