Cycle philosophy and knowledge of environmental protection are becoming more and more prominent, this is something that makes demands on our organisation. From being only transporters, we have developed into advisers, concept developers and producers of secondary raw materials.
The start of what is today Ragn-Sells can be traced back to 1881 when Amandus Zakarias Leonard Sellberg started "Sellberg's Ridning" in Stockholm. Later, Amandus Zakarias Leonard Sellberg married Axelia Häggberg, who lived on Väderholmen's farm in Sollentuna, where Ragn-Sell's head office is now located. Together they had the son Ragnar.
In 1928, Amandus and Julia's son, Ragnar Sellberg, started the collection of waste, a business that the Sellberg family has developed over generations. When Ragnar delivered milk to customers in the city, he came up with the idea to bring the waste from the city back to the farm and manage it there. A service that the people appreciated. All said and done, Väderholmen was Sweden's first proposal for a recycling station.
The basic idea and vision was; to make the earth a better place for future generations, Ragnar continues to develop the business, and in 1933 he becomes managing director of AZ Sellbergs Åkeri. At this point, the company has about 100 horses. During the coming years, many of the horses will be replaced in favor of new technology, namely cars.
The company has been run from the farm for several generations, and everyone has contributed and helped as far as they could. After a generational change in the 1960s, AZ Sellberg's Directory is sold.
After some time, Ragnar leaves the post of president and engages in his new company AB North Trim. The company is growing rapidly and is becoming one of the leading companies in waste recycling. 1968 both companies change their name to Ragn-Sells AB. Ragnar continues to develop Swedish recycling and is an active environmental debater until his death in 1995.
In the third generation, Erik Sellberg takes over as CEO in 2008. Both before and after, Ragn-Sells AB has expanded and started up in several countries; Norway, Estonia, Denmark. Today, Lars Lindén is the CEO.
