Our history

our history

Aleido was founded in 2023 as a spin-off from Semcon, a Swedish-based technology company. Within Semcon we operated as a business area for decades, driving the development of aftermarket information and learning solutions.

Today, fully owned by Ratos, Aleido operates as a standalone company with offerings within aftermarket information and digital learning. We are an international company with colleagues across Sweden, Germany, the UK, Hungary, and China.

Our focus is on what we do the best, i.e., bridging the gap between technology and the people who depend on it.
