Skövde is a vibrant place – home to residents keen to develop, expanding companies and a variety of clubs and societies that engage and inspire adults and children every day to come together and get active.
A collective project is under way in Södra Ryd, which is the largest city district in Skövde, home to 6,300 residents, involving urban redevelopment with the overall aim of counteracting segregation and promoting equal conditions for everyone living and growing up in the area. One way forward is interacting with clubs and societies. Being an active member of a club or society is a tradition that is deeply rooted among Swedes, but is not equally evident in other parts of the world. Area development officers in Södra Ryd have taken this on board with the ESA project.
It turned out to be a good thing that Carl Erik Josef Nyberg felt it took too long to change compressed air tools and that their performance was poor when working at Miloverkstaden Skövde in the mid 1950s. Then as now, Skövde is good at transforming ideas and innovations into products and companies. Naturally Carl Erik had a solution to his problem, so he obtained a patent for his idea and set up CEJN – a company that now has 350 employees.
