Year of investment

RCO, which was founded in 1976 by Wilhelm Börlin and Lars Mattsson, is now a leading supplier of keyless locks in Sweden. The business concept is to create a safe and secure environment in commercial, public and residential buildings by developing, manufacturing and selling, through a wide network of dealers and marketing aimed at end customers, electronic products and keyless lock systems for doors and gates.

The product range includes everything from code locks and intercoms to access systems, reservation systems and integrated systems for controlling both passage and burglar alarms. RCO has the most secure solutions for commercial, public and residential buildings.

RCO offers systems for everyone from the small shop or building up to the large industry or municipality. The scalable and flexible system has proven to have a powerful competitive edge. RCO’s products are available throughout Scandinavia and there are plans for further expansion.
The company is headquartered in Järfälla and has regional offices in Malmö, Gothenburg, Norrköping and Oslo.

For me it was a real eye-opener when we got new owners. Suddenly there was someone to report to, and I’d never had that before. It provided inspiration and taught us lessons that made the job really fun.
