Balco

Balco is Scandinavia’s leading supplier of glazed balconies to tenant associations and landlords in both the private- and public sector.

Balco was founded in 1987 and has since then grown strongly in Sweden and expanded in Europe. The Company now has 300 employees and offers turnkey solutions for balcony construction with responsibility for the entire value chain.

On October 6, 2017, Balco was listed on the Nasdaq Stockholm Small Cap list.
