Liftroller was founded by Ivar Ole Wik, who has extensive experience from the construction industry. In 2015, he launched a product series specially designed to avoid damage to fragile materials such as plasterboard. Wik was named inventor of the year in 2014, and the Liftroller product series is now patented and distributed to several countries.

From idea to international success

In a portrait interview in Teknisk Ukeblad, Wik reveals that the idea for the Liftroller system came after experiencing all the challenges associated with transporting plasterboard and other fragile materials on a construction site. The Liftroller system has taken inspiration from luggage belts at airports, and forms a platform out of the building that is used to take in and out materials and construction waste on a construction project. With the Liftroller system, the products can be transported directly into the desired floor without damaging the products. This also saves time on unloading, at the same time as it provides better HSE and fewer injuries for those who work. What once started as an idea with a simple sketch, has now become a company with many employees and departments in several countries.

In addition to customers in Australia and Asia, the Liftroller system is leased throughout Scandinavia through the company Liftroller Rental AS. The product range has developed to include both ramps with rollers on which form a "luggage band" between the outside and inside of a building, as well as material handling equipment for moving materials around inside the building.

Logistics is a critical factor

Bjarte Kvamme leads the rental part of Liftroller. As a rental company, your own logistics management is a critical factor. We want customers to be satisfied, both with the Liftroller product and with the rental experience itself. We help customers choose the right product for the task so that they get the most efficient logistics on the construction site, which is very important for the finances of a project.

On rental software, they have chosen Sharefox rental system . With Sharefox, we have an overview of the various rental orders in a separate calendar view, follow the inventory and status of these and prepare the invoicing basis. Sharefox and Liftroller have been in dialogue for a long time and it has also resulted in new functions that have been developed in collaboration.

“Liftroller is an offensive company with its innovations and ambitions for the construction site, which I have great faith in. Very exciting to see what we can achieve in collaboration " , says Åsgeir Helland, general manager of Sharefox.

"We felt there was" entrepreneurial spirit "on both sides, and where we had solved a challenge on construction sites, the team at Sharefox had solved a challenge on efficient rental systems" , says Bjarte Kvamme, Managing Director, Liftroller.
