connectBlue was founded in 2000 by Rolf Nilsson. From years of experience within the industrial automation industry (ABB, Alfa Laval, SATT Control) he envisioned the future demand for reliable, cost-efficient industrial wireless systems. Rolf quickly brought on pioneers of Bluetooth technology which was the wireless technology with the greatest leverage in 2000. Experience told them to focus on a few key requirements: Compatibility, extended life cycles and performance. Still today, these requirements are the focus of the connectBlue delivery.
