Made in Sweden – for people and the planet

When we launched our first Mousetrapper in 1994, it was because we understood that the traditional computer mouse was not optimal for a good ergonomic working position. We wanted to improve the work environment so that more people could avoid lifelong neck, arm and wrist pain.

The work environment is at the heart of everything we do – as our motto goes: Fight the Pain. It is then also natural for us to do everything we can to improve the work environment for our employees.

A production environment has many elements that can be both heavy and repetitive. With new technology, automation and the latest tools, we are doing what we can to ensure that no one is affected by occupational injuries. Fight the Pain is an idea that also guides us when we design our own production environment.

156 tonnes

Save our backs

Our new pallet conveyor has been designed to smoothly move our Mousetrappers through the production environment. At the same time, we looked at how we could reduce the strain on our employees’ backs. It turns out that with the new pallet conveyor, we avoid having to lift 75 kg every hour or 600 kg a day – which is 156 tonnes every year. Better ergonomics and happier backs when we practise what we preach. As we say: Fight the Pain.

700,000 screws

2,700 screws per day

A number of screws are required to fit all parts in a Mousetrapper. In fact, a staggering 700,000 screws are used to put together our entire annual volume. If you convert this to the working year, this means 2,700 screws per day – or about 6 screws per minute.

This is a high tempo environment, and in order to cope with this, both from a production need and to avoid unnecessary strain injuries, we have invested in several fully and semi-automatic solutions that ensure that the screws are secured quickly and efficiently.

400 km

Reduced carrying

Another benefit of our new production environment is that we have reduced the need to carry Mousetrappers between stations. In fact, we’ve shortened the path we carry around Mousetrappers by 400 km a year. This means that we avoid having to trudge 200 metres with a Mousetrapper every hour. Not bad.


Full control of quality

Our Mousetrappers have a reputation for longevity. Some people think they last too long – we don’t agree, because we’re proud of our quality. Quality is a watchword for us, and with production in our own premises, we have very good control over quality. And since we have invested in the automation of many heavy or repetitive tasks, we also have a positive side effect. Humans are fantastic, but an automated station makes even fewer errors. Never really, if everything works as it should. This means that our quality is even higher now and our Mousetrappers will last even longer. An important way to reduce our carbon footprint is to extend the life of everything we use, so if your Mousetrapper lives a few more years, then nobody is happier than us.

If you want to extend the life of your Mousetrapper even further, we also offer a refurbishment service.

With in-house production, many long transports are cut

As we now produce more and more – in fact, most things – in our own premises, we gain better control over, for example, production times and quality. Another important aspect is that we also avoid a lot of transport. Transport is one of the biggest environmental culprits, and in line with our sustainability strategy, we are working hard to reduce our transport needs. So the more we can produce in our own premises, the fewer long-distance transports are needed, which is positive and reduces our carbon footprint.

Modern production environment

By continuously investing in our production environment, we gain many advantages. On the one hand, we’re removing bottlenecks with semi- and fully automated steps, which means that efficiency increases, and, paradoxically, quality actually increases when repetitive steps are removed. This is positive for the work environment when stress and tension-related injuries can be avoided. Ultimately, it will be a better product – and a better work environment.

Another thing that is important for creating a modern production environment is of course to minimise the impact on the climate. For example, we only use renewable electricity and work actively with suppliers in the local area to improve and develop climate work throughout the entire chain.
