Customer Interview - Meet Nazer & Co.

Abrar Mooraj, Partner and Managing Director at Nazer & Co, tells the company’s history: “My grandfather, Nazer Mooraj, founded our company in 1952, so it’s just a bit younger than Habasit. Like Habasit, we’re proud to be a family company and offer our customers the very best products and service, based on in-depth technical know-how and excellent customer support.”


Employee Interview - Meet Joakim Ödman

Speaking from his home office in Uddevalla, just north of Gothenburg, Joakim smiles as he describes how he started at Habasit in 1999: “My two older brothers worked at Habasit in production on the evening shift after school. So when I was 16 and got a call from the production manager inviting me to join Habasit for the summer, I jumped at the chance. He said they might ask me to mow the lawn too - but sadly they never did. I continued at Habasit in the evenings after school, and worked every summer all through university. Then I started full time in fabrication, took a year off to volunteer in Mozambique, but came back again to Habasit.”

How to save energy and reduce running costs

Would you like to reduce the running costs of your facility?
The answer is probably yes. If you also want to protect the environment by saving energy, here’s a tip.

The World in a Can

When it comes to the world of cans, prepare for the unexpected. Whether it is the whole chicken coated in gelatinous gravy squeezed into a 50-oz can, roasted crickets with eggs, bacon with a decade long shelf life or a tin stuffed with an American cheeseburger, there seems to be no end to the culinary creativity of what you can put into a can. Even beverages are not limited to the average soda or beer. In China, you can buy a can of Bird`s Nest drink, a specialty made by dissolving Swiftlets` nests into a liquid which promises to stimulate cell growth and strengthen the immune system.
