Åkers Krutbruk Protection AB became privately-owned again in 1981. An extensive modernisation, including the automation of different processes and a company-wide quality control system, made Åkers Krutbruk the leader of protection products and system throughout Sweden.
In 2003, Åkers Krutbruk Protection AB was acquired by the IBD Deisenroth Engineering Group in Germany.
By 2008, the IBD family had become an international technology leader in the area of survivability systems. The extensive R&D work they’ve pursued for many years provides customers around the world with advanced high-tech solutions.
In 2010, CEO Niclas Sahlgren bought 49 % of Åkers Krutbruk Protection AB from the IBD Deisenroth Engineering Group.
Since the summer 2012 Mr. Ulf Deisenroth is the 100% owner of Åkers Krutbruk Protection AB. By this the cooperation between IBD Group and Åkers Krutbruk Protection AB became even tighter.
During 2012 Mr. Peter Servin was appointed as Chief Executive Officer.
