In 1976, Ronny and Rigmor Pihblad started the company Pivab. From the very beginning, they invested in energy-efficient paint solutions with high energy recovery and became pioneers in the field.


In the late 1980s, Pivab's paint boxes were available in workshops around the world. Angola, Algeria, Finland, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Russia and China are some countries that caught the eye of Pivab's energy-smart paint systems early on.


During the 2000s, Pivab invested in the Nordic market. With a passion for new methods and new technology, Pivab continued to develop unique customer solutions that optimize workshop flows. The knowledge is passed on through Pivab's participation in the Vocational Championships and the industry's training facilities.


In the early 1980s, Pivab delivered systems that provided up to 50 percent energy recovery. The tailor-made package solutions with efficient air flows and environmentally classified filters were patented in no less than 14 countries.


In 1992, Pivab started a factory in Thailand for the export of paint boxes to the United States. The energy-efficient paint systems were shown at exhibitions in Las Vegas and Dallas. In California, Pivab's earthquake-proof paint boxes still stand.


Today, Pivab is a family business with 40 years of knowledge and experience. The modern paint systems today have up to 90 percent recycling rate. In 2015, Pivab received the Environmental Award of the Year from Varberg Municipality.
