History of SSM of NA. All SSM products are manufactured in Uppsala Sweden. The lightweight portable skate sharpening machine (SSM-2) has its origin in the late 60’s and early 70’s, when it was constructed by Rune Gustavsson, then at Osmund Fabriks AB in Uppsala, Sweden. In the early 80’s Gustavsson and Kurt Jaderstrom left Osmund and formed their own company, SSM Produkt AB, for manufacturing and selling skate sharpening machines and riveting machines.
Today, in 2018 well over 25,000 SSM Sharpening Machines (Stationary Model TT-3, the SSM Profiler and SSM-2) are currently being used worldwide to include Individuals, Families, Pro shops, Bandy, Sledge, Figure Skating Clubs, Youth, Olympic and Professional Hockey Teams.
The North American SSM Distributor and Sales Representative, Scott Corwin, met Gustavsson and Jaderstrom back in 1982, while playing hockey in Uppsala which is north of Stockholm and where SSM machines are manufactured and SSM Headquarters is located. During a brief period in the mid ’80’s when Scott returned from Sweden, to his hometown in New England, he promoted and sold SSM (Skate Sharpening Machines) in North America before he went on to a 20 year career as a pilot in the USMC.
That’s Scott at Montreal Expo back in 1984 (far right) with interested Reps and friends from Canada.
As fate would have it Scott reengaged with the SSM Manufacturer in Sweden (Rune Gustavsson’s son Hakan and his grandson Stefan) in 2008. Since then SSM in the USA and Canada has continued to satisfy customers with SSM products.
The SSM of NA team looks forward to introducing you to these world class products. The same quality that SSM has provided worldwide for the past 40-50 years.
