Rutab is Sweden’s leading supplier of cable glands, grommets and protective conduits, and a very strong player in control cable, lighting control and temporary lighting. We have achieved this position by focusing on long-term planning, quality, a high service level, a complete range of products with investments in in-house product development, and by listening to our customers and suppliers.

Through various acquisitions over the past decade, we have greatly broadened our product portfolio, giving us an even firmer foundation on which to stand, and making us an even stronger partner in the market.

At Rutab, we have always been driven by innovation, knowledge and a desire to constantly develop our products and solutions. We build long-term relationships and work closely with both our customers and our carefully-selected suppliers.

Since 2001, Rutab is also established in Norway, where cable glands, grommets and our range of junction boxes form the core of our operations.

Focused expansion over time

From agency to supplier

From the “small agency” to a solution-providing partner.

Since its inception in 1987, Rutab has undergone a number of changes in order to keep pace with market developments. Our product range has been adapted to meet the needs and expectations of our customers, partly through our own production and partly through carefully selected partners. Rather than being a supplier of components, we want to ensure that we can offer the right total solution in our respective core areas.
