Background

 

Mikrodust started in 2011. The partners Mats Iderup and Björn Strandmark had a common vision to sell programmable and pre-approved radio modules to alarm and metering companies among others. Mats had a hardware development background while Björn had worked with systems and software. Both worked as contractors at Securitas Direct (Verisure nowadays) when they met Shmuel Melman, owner and CEO of the Crow Group. Crow is an electronics development and manufacturing company targeting the security/alarm area and is a supplier to Verisure among others. They all joined and created Mikrodust AB.

Already after a year the company had started to supply radio modules to different kinds of wireless products such as climate sensors and smoke detectors. The modules contained all electronics required for the application and radio communication and were low power enough to run 10 years without battery replacement.

The company gradually expanded its customer base and found new business opportunities in the area of small low-power radio modules. They started to build test fixtures for production test and developed their own fixture control electronics. Construction of production test fixtures and systems represent a large portion of the company's revenue today.

Meanwhile, they have also begun to develop in-house wireless products that eventually will be offered to the market in various ways. 

The company is expanding all the time and today it has a revenue around 10-15 million SEK and about 10 employees.
