The history of Standardbolag
Lawyer Gustaf Bertil Ihrman, the founder of Svenska Standardbolag AB, had his office in the ”Ihrman villa” in Falun and conducted general legal services during the years of 1921–1953.
After the war, there was less to do in his business and Ihrman tried to find a new focus of his business. He wanted it to relate to his marketing studies at Columbia University School of Business in New York 1921.
In the year of 1944, after the new Limited Companies act was passed, Ihrman saw an opportunity to realise his idea of shelf companies.
The business activities were conducted through S-bolagen AB until 1954, when the company Svenska Standardbolag AB was formed.
The artist Stig Sonesson, Stockholm, was the company’s publicity agent during G B Ihrman’s time. He created the scroll, which is still used in some prints.
In 1970 the banker Olof Brovall and the accountant Sören Thunström took over the company from G B Ihrman, who retired from old age. Throughout the years, the company has evolved into Sweden’s leading company in corporate services and operates in Falun, Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmoe. Svenska standardbolag AB’s head office is located in Falun and Depona now conducts some of its business in the aforementioned “Ihrman villa”.
Today, the executive director of Svenska Standardbolag is Erik Berggren and Olof Brovall owns the entire company. The company has offices in Falun, Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmoe. The number of employees has increased to around 30.
