This is the forging division of a closed down steel factory. Åkers is a steel manufacturing industry that started its business in 1580 in Åkers styckebruk, a Swedish city. Originally a cannon factory, the company today manufactures steel rollers for industry. In 1806 the first roll was made. Today the Åkers group is a worldwide manufacturer with factories in Europe and the USA.
