David Sondén, General Manager Sweden of the Product Information division at Semcon
We concluded the first six months of the year with a good second quarter during which we more than doubled our operating profit compared with the corresponding quarter in 2017.
This project will give us the opportunity to operate in a wider context and look at a system solution where our cutting-edge technical expertise from previous projects will come in very handy. We will also help to ensure that more cyclists can cycle safely.
Children who come to Sweden unaccompanied and are placed in social care are incredibly vulnerable. The idea is to develop a technical solution that can help these children to understand and communicate with Swedish society more easily. This project is a clear example of how technology can make a difference when we focus on people’s needs.
It’s about including women’s perspectives on products that have traditionally been developed using men as the benchmark. I believe that more perspectives are necessary and would benefit us all.
Through our focus on measures to strengthen margins in business development, productivity and cost efficiency, we can report strong earnings for the first quarter.
With the extended knowledge from multiple industries and a solid service offering, from both HAAS-Publikationen and Semcon operations globally, we will become an even stronger partner to both existing and future customers with this acquisition.
Red Dot is a quality hallmark denoting good design, and it is a prestigious award to win. In both award-winning projects, customers with lofty ambitions came to Semcon and relied on our design expertise. We then worked together on the entire product chain, from the user perspective to design and construction. This is the way to make a truly outstanding product

Autonomous snowploughs will allow airports all over the world to streamline their activities and reduce delays for their passengers. This is a good example of how autonomous vehicles can increase profitability and add value for people.
Our ability to create excellent customer experience through the use of smart technology provides a good foundation for both sought-after offerings and as an attractive workplace.
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
