Däckcenter in Anderstorp was founded in 1970 by Anders Åstmar, but has been owned by his son Henrik since 2007. They currently have three employees. At Däckcenter they also have a tyre hotel which currently stores tyres for some 900 cars. The premises were built in 1982, with doors from EAB, two manual inward opening folding doors with sheet plate cladding. The installed doors were unusually large for the time, 3.6 metres wide and approximately 5 metres high. Today, they have proved to be the perfect dimensions to also be able to drive in modern lorries, which are considerably higher than those back in the 80’s.
EAB was part of Smart Ytas establishment journey from the start. A journey that began nearly two years ago. Things moved very fast from there. Nine months after the first ground was broken on the first building the premises were sold and ready for occupation. The company has now built a total of three properties, each with 26 premises and an additional building is planned for. Therefore, for Smart Yta it was very important to collaborate with suppliers who offer high quality throughout the entire process and products that last for a long time to come.
