The family-owned Wideco company was founded at the beginning of the 80s by Arnold Wirfalk,  and he is still active in the company as Senior Adviser. Karl-Johan Wirfalk is now CEO, and drives the company forwards together with his sister Viktoria Frössling and other colleagues. The Head Office is located in new premises just outside Borås.


Since the beginning of 1982 we have worked on development and marketing of monitoring systems for insulated district-heating pipes. Now we have also widened the business area in include district cooling pipes, chamber alarms, and well alarms, as well as industrial pipes plus associated services. A complete sealing system for various types of pipe passing through concrete walls and floors has been developed and marketed as WiSecure.

Over the past 7 years, Wideco has created and developed one of the most flexible and simple monitoring systems in the world(WiDetect), of which we are very proud.

Our market is global.

Our market experience extends over 35 years, and we have amassed a great deal of competence within the company. We know how to build a complete and effective monitoring system, how to secure pipes with concrete, and we can advise on design and planning of your system or project.


Workers with vision create future growth.

On Wideco all employees involved in the development of the company in any way and thus contribute to the success. Our way of working strategically, development and commercial high-level means that we strengthen ourselves in the market. Now we have taken this a step further when in 2015 we moved into our new premises in Viared that are specifically designed for our business and vision. We are building a new culture of Wideco based on our values and ideas. And we will have fun in the meantime!

Customers increase – Wideco moves forward

Demand for our products and services increased throughout 2016 and a strategy that we call Vision 2020 has been developed, which means a strong expansion, particularly into new markets.

During the year we further strengthened our sales organization with Johan Stigsson and Catherine Tynes Kjellberg. They will focus on developing our existing customers and to meet new potential customers and partners in our different markets world wide.

Wideco want to forward, be innovative, simple, we want to create value for our customers, we want to be personal, and we want our systems are used worldwide. We are already on the good path. But we can do much more. Our core values says it all.
