The Be-Ge Group has a successful and interesting history that we are very proud of. Here is a timeline from 1934 to today.
Bror Göthe Persson took over the import and sales of Ford motorcars in Oskarshamn.
Be-Ge Bil became sales agent for Scania Vabis trucks and is today the world’s oldest private Scania agent.
Be-Ge Karosserifabrik AB was established.
The first modern suspended driver seats for trucks were developed.
Be-Ge Bil became sales agent for Volkswagen.
The coachwork factories were acquired by Scania Vabis of Södertälje. The manufacture of truck cabs is still in Oskarshamn and is one of Kalmar County’s largest employers. The manufacture of the driver seats, to be fitted in the truck cabs, remained a Be-Ge production that continued in the new company Be-Ge Stolindustri AB. Later on the name of the company was changed to Be-Ge Industri AB, which after another renaming is today’s Be-Ge Seating AB.
Be-Ge Förarmiljö AB was established in Kolsva, Sweden specialising in the sales of driver seats and equipment for forest machinery.

Billackeringen E. Johansson AB in Oskarshamn was acquired as a future development of vehicle and industrial paint work.
The two Danish companies Jany A/S and Vald. Nielsen A/S were merged and the Copenhagen office closed down. In the same year the rights were acquired to market the office chair called “Ullmanstolen”.
