AboutOCS Overhead Conveyor System Ltd

Moving Your Business

With headquarters in Borås, one of Sweden's and Europe's leading cities for textiles and fashion, OCS has a history dating back to the 1960s as a specialist in internal transport systems for the ready-to-wear industry. However, since 1993, when today's OCS started, the market has broadened considerably with a focus on the automotive, aviation, bicycle and surface treatment industries. Today, we operate on a global market with customers all over the world and a presence in several continents.

The basis of OCS's success is the control over our own production in Sweden, but above all our friction-based patented technology for hanging conveyors. This technology means that we can offer modern industry solutions that are clean and oil-free, ergonomic and quiet, and very flexible for quick changeovers. Furthermore, our long experience has given us a strong position as specialists in lean production, through which we help our customers create the most optimal solution based on their needs.

OCS is part of Axel Johnson International, a global industrial group that acquires and develops technology companies in strategically selected niche markets. The focus is on companies that offer technical components and solutions for industrial processes.

The business is characterized by active, long-term ownership with the ambition to promote renewal and create growth. By building and developing company groups with companies that complement and strengthen each other, knowledge exchange and joint initiatives are stimulated. Today, the group has six business areas: Driveline Solutions, Fluid Handling Solutions, Industrial Automation, Lifting Solutions, Power Transmission Solutions and Transport Solutions. OCS is part of the Industrial Automation business area.

A decentralized and committed leadership enables quick decisions and protects the entrepreneurial spirit that pervades the organization. The group has four strategic focus areas: digitalisation, service, sustainability and competence provision.

Axel Johnson International is headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden and consists of 170 companies with operations in 30 countries. Axel Johnson International is part of the family-owned Axel Johnson Group.
