1981 We started, after an agreement with Tatsuno Corp. Ltd., production of electronic petrol and diesel dispensers for the Swedish market. The production was situated in Falkenberg in the southwest of Sweden. The first years the activity, mainly concisted of rebuilding existing mechanical dispensers where the counter was replaced with an electronic retrofit unit. This meant that the oilcompanies could have an updated modern electronic dispenser, with all the advantages, to a very low cost.
