ÅF has signed a significant agreement with Volvo Car Corporation. The order
relates primarily to industrial automation technology, which is one of the areas
of technical expertise in which ÅF excels in the automotive industry. The order
is one of the largest that ÅF has won to date from the car industry.
For ÅF, the project involves the development and delivery of a number of
automated production lines for Volvo Car Corporation.
For the most part, the project will be conducted by the ÅF unit in Olofström.
"This is proof that Volvo regards ÅF as a strategic supplier that Volvo wishes
continue to work closely with in the future," says Per Magnusson, President
of the ÅF Industry Division, which has approximately 1,500 consultants.
"The projects, which will run over a period of two years, were won against
international competition," says Jan-Ola Andersson, who is responsible for ÅF's
activities in the Industrial Projects business area.
The ÅF Group is a leader in technical consulting, with expertise founded on more
than a century of experience. We offer highly qualified services and solutions
for industrial processes, infrastructure projects and the development of
products and IT systems. Today the ÅF Group has 7,000 employees. Our base is in
Europe, but our business and our clients are found all over the world.
