Safe and secure at Bosch Thermotechnik

Bosch Thermotechnik AB in Tranås is the world's largest manufacturer of heat pumps. Even in an industrial company such as Bosch Thermotechnik AB, there is an abundance of keys that need managing. Everything from pool cars, truck keys, various premises, machinery and other vehicles – all of these need to be administered.

Keys in drawers

- Not so long ago, most of the keys lay in drawers in the offices of different people. You didn't know who had the key or if it was out on loan, says Fredrik Arvidsson, who works in maintenance.

At Bosch Thermotechnik, there are 9 different key cabinets from Creone located around the factory. Everything from key cabinets where specific keys can be controlled to simple cabinets that can only be opened with an entry card used by the company. Broadly speaking, there is a KeyBox in all departments!


For Bosch Thermotechnik, knowing that the keys are in safekeeping, and that only those who are allowed to use the keys can open key cabinets and remove keys creates a sense of security.

- There aren't many people who think about this, but with Creone's Keycontrol key management system we also save loads of time! Before, a lot of time was spent on just administering keys and keeping an eye on who had which key; now I have everything on my computer, Fredrik Arvidsson says.

KeyBox 9400SC – for control of pool cars, which everyone in the company can borrow at any time of the day. It is simple to follow up afterwards that the car has been returned.

KeyBox 9500E – Connected to a card reader, which the users swipe to open the door. This key cabinet contains all the truck keys.
KeyBox 9500B - I have this type of key cabinet in the Maintenance Department. Keys to different premises, machinery, vehicles etc.
