We develop, manufacture and sell control systems and warning equipment for emergency and special vehicles.


Standby was founded in 1978 by two engineers in Trollhättan, Sweden. They had an idea of developing and offering a range of products to match the demanding requirements for emergency vehicles.

A market leader in northern Europe, Standby AB offers innovative alarm and warning solutions and products to meet the needs of drivers of commercial and emergency vehicles.

Our internal development and sales of lighting, sound and control systems make us a total systems supplier in the sector. Combining expertise, highly skilled staff and a strong focus on service, we have forged a reputation as a reliable, effective partner.

This means we can offer our customers first class service and support wherever in Europe they are based. Standby Group comprises Standby AB, Standby GmbH, Standby Mercura SAS, Standby RSG Ltd and Standby Oy Ab.

We hold certification for ISO 9001:2015 quality management system and ISO 14001:2015 environmental management system.
