Dustcontrol AB was founded in 1972 by Johann Haberl, Mirko Purar and Evert Kranz. All three had previously worked as engineers at Devac AB, a Swedish government owned research and development company. The main purpose of the company was to research the health hazards of dust generated when drilling into stone. At the time, stone dust and "stone dust lung" was a major issue. After testing various methods such as binding the dust with water and air filtration, their finding was that the most effective method was source extraction.

When Devac was wound up, the three colleagues decided to continue with the source extraction project themselves. A new private company was formed - Dustcontrol AB. However, as the market for stone dust was limited, the company began to develop stationary and mobile dust extractors for other industries.
