About us

We put our heart & soul in Lådfabriken

IMG_1745We are Johan Buskqvist and Marcel van der Eng, partners in life and in the Lådfabriken. In 2008 we purchased the old building and rebuilt it between fall 2009 and summer 2012. Johan is Swedish and spent his childhood in Edshultshall, the village of his ancestors. Marcel is Dutch and moved from Amsterdam in spring 2010 to co-ordinate the building activities and to start up the B&B activities that opened in May 2013.

Marcel has a background in Marketing & Communication of live entertainment products (Cirque du Soleil Europe, Hans Klok ‘Faster than Magic Tour’, ‘Happy Didl day’, ‘A Few Good Men Dancin’, Stardust Theatre, Carré Theatre, the opera ‘Orfeo & Euridice’). Johan is passionate about design, garments and fabrics. He has over 25 years of experience and overall responsibility for the vision, concept and product development of sports- and streetwear. He enjoyed working for companies such as Boomerang, Esprit, Nike, Reebok and Adidas Originals before moving back to Sweden. Johan works partly as a design and strategy consultant on project basis for his own company BSKQV.
