Our Story

The story of FlexQube began over 20 years ago in central Sweden when three boys developed a love for playing with Lego®. As they grew up and started their professional careers that love of being able to build something together never left them.

While working for a global manufacturer of construction equipment, Per Augustsson noticed that materials management wasn’t keeping up with modern demands. The industry norm of welded solutions wasn’t adaptable enough for the constant change that the industry was experiencing. A cart that was used for transporting a specific piece from the warehouse to the assembly area had to be welded together especially for that article’s dimensions and weight.

Once a product life cycle changed, the cart in question was no longer suitable for new materials and would be scrapped. As production lines changed more frequently, the need for a customized material handling solution grew, Per Augustsson noted: “I realized the need for a supportive, robust and easily customizable solution was needed.

The more I investigated it, the more I concluded that a concept comprising a few standard building blocks was the way to go”, said Augustsson (CTO).

From here the concept of FlexQube was birthed by three friends who created a professional, heavy-duty and flexible material handling solution around the idea of building blocks. There were actually a number of ideas discussed until Augustsson, together with Christian Thiel (CFO) and Anders Fogelberg (CEO), struck upon the new concept.

“In the earliest days, as we approached the concept, we quickly realized the strength of having a bolted together solution. This concerned a lot of people; what they don’t realize however is that there’s a reason why you don’t weld your car tires to your automobile, which is that you’ll need to change them in the future. This is what many industry leaders have started to realize is needed in material handling now”, explains Fogelberg (CEO).

FlexQube offers a flexible system of a few standardized components that can be used to build industrial material handling applications. For example, pallet carts, kit carts, and shelf carts. The products can be taken apart, re-assembled and adjusted and are completely flexible. The concept saves both time and money when a re-design is needed. “The product is inspired by Lego®. We use intervals of 7 cm in all components, so you can easily design and assemble them into different solutions. Regardless of how you interlock our products, you get the same interface – just like with Lego®,” says Thiel (CFO).

Since then FlexQube has grown to service over 500 customers in upwards of 26 countries and counting, serving industries including automotive, industrial equipment, warehousing, consumer goods, energy, defense and medical. On December 14 2017 Christian Thiel, Anders Fogelberg and Per Augustsson achieved a lifelong dream by taking FlexQube public and listed on the NASDAQ in Stockholm. While much has happened in the life of FlexQube, the modular and robust concept has plenty more to give and we are only at the beginning of our journey.
