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.

How it started

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.

A new idea

At his summer residence on Öland, the idea took its final form; standardisation of creating companies, fixed prices and qualified service were included in the complete ”company package”.

The business activities were conducted through S-bolagen AB until 1954, when the company Svenska Standardbolag AB was formed.

Innovated marketing

The development was progressing rapidly. In 1964 the company had 11 employees, offices covering the entire lower floor of the Ihrman Villa in Falun and a rented office in Stockholm.

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.


New owners

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 and Malmoe. Svenska standardbolag AB’s head office is located in Falun and Depona now conducts some of its business in the before mentioned “The Ihrman villa”.

New office

In 1983, the new property next to "The Ihrman villa" in Falun was inaugurated, from where the head office's operations are conducted since then. This is because the business has expanded so much that we no longer had room at the old office.
