Lindab becomes Innovation Pioneer Initiator

To continue on the path of open innovation, Lindab has joined the network Innovation Pioneers as one of the initiators.

Nicklas Friberg, Head of Innovation Hub at Lindab in Helsingborg, has been given the task of setting up the new innovations team at the company. Lindab has a 60-year history of developing and manufacturing products and system solutions for simplified construction and improved indoor climate. The company is now looking to future-proof their customer offering.

”At Lindab, we’ve always focused on traditional products. Now it’s important for us to re-evaluate our business model and to adapt our offering for the future, both when it comes to developing new services and in how we can approach the market in a new way. We need to be more innovative and have a mindset where we dare to fail going forward”, explains Nicklas Friberg.

Nicklas is a strong believer of open innovation, and that we learn more together. One of his priorities when setting up the Innovation Hub was to find an innovations’ network for Lindab to join.


”We wanted to be part of an innovation network and were recommended Innovation Pioneers. After participating in the Tank Meeting hosted by Ideon Open and RISE in Lund in May we decided to join the network,” explains Nicklas Friberg and continues: ”By joining Innovation Pioneers we hope to get new input into how we can innovate to make the indoor climate better for everyone.”
