History of Cibes Lift Group : BRINGING PEOPLE TOGETHER


Cibes Lift Group is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of home lifts. We truly believe everyone must have equal access regardless of disabilities.

Cibes’ story started with a “Swedish engineer and inventor”


After the end of World War II, Sweden’s manufacturing industry grew to a record high. New companies were formed and innovative entrepreneurs have been starting the business foundations for sustainable operations for decades to come.


Ingvar Kamprad founded IKEA, and Erling Persson opened a women’s clothing store in 1947, which eventually became H&M. 1947 was also the year that the versatile engineer Bertil Svedberg. Visionary and creative, he founded Cibes as a brand within his own company, Elektroborg AB in Stockholm. Bertil Svedberg had a strong desire to develop new technologies & innovative new products to open up new market opportunities. If Bertil Svedberg was still among us to witness how far his product developments and innovations went, he would immediately roll up his sleeves to bring additional ideas. 
However, he probably wouldn’t have expected that his elevator would be installed in the Louvre Abu Dhabi (UAE) or installed in an office building next to the Russian Hermitage in St Petersburg for use during Pope John Paul II’s visit to Poland. Today, more than 70,000 lifts in more than 70 countries around the world are being used.
