It’s with great pleasure we have managed to come to this long term agreement with DeLaval. It strengthens our position and it will create a very good platform to deliver and develop information solutions for DeLaval.
In Olof Christensson, Semcon has recruited a person with extensive experience of business development. Semcon has the ambition of further developing Design & Development’s current business and focus on international growth. We are confident that Olof has the experience to lead the business area’s expansion and we welcome him to Semcon.
We are proud to have once again been entrusted by one of our German auto customers to complete a major project. This agreement is fully in line with Semcon’s strategy of being an independent partner with expertise and capacity for complete car development. It´s our knowledge of project deliveries, experience of complete car projects, and long-term relationship with the customer, that were contributory factors for this agreement
Our ambition is to create a new office that promotes personal interaction and is cost-effective. It will also be suitable for projects, which is a business model that is continually increasing
We can now bring Semcon’s strong offer and track record in product information solutions and services to the German market and use Comet as a platform for rapid growth in Germany
German manufacturers are strong in the global automotive industry and it is pleasing to us that we have signed new contracts in this market. The deal also confirms the trend of automotive OEM choosing to outsource larger projects to independent engineering development companies
The positive trend we saw in the first quarter continued in the second quarter resulting in improved results compared to last year. Our focus on more markets and more profitable business models is giving results for Semcon and our customers. We continue to look positively at developments in 2012 even though the economic outlook is uncertain.
Semcon was set up at Trollhättan in 1985 and we see major opportunities for further expansion by taking advantage of the expertise that exists in the region
I’m looking forward, together with my colleagues, to get the opportunity to continue developing Semcon’s global business
