My name is Bengt Löfgren. I have been working as a University teacher in product engineering and manufacturing for many years and are also a specialist in sheet metal technology.
Some years back I started working on and designing a project together with IKEA Refugee Housing Units, Swedish steel manufacturer SSAB and my previous employer Triple Steelix resulting in the refugee tent now known as IKEA Better Shelters.
