Negotiations should be completed during December 2000. Besam is a world leader in door automation and revolving doors, with sales in more than 70 countries.

Four employees at Besam as well as a number of consultants will be included in the partnership. "We see Semcon taking over this business as a competitive advantage," says Peter Bergman, Managing Director at Besam Production AB.

Semcon is at the cutting edge of development in this sector where Internet and multimedia solutions create new business opportunities. Semcon is a very professional firm and has the capacity to take care off any variations that may occurr. "Demand for our services within interactive infomedia and technical information is constantly increasing and we will continue to dramatically expand to meet our customers' needs. Our customers demand more outsourcing in the form of partnerships with one strong supplier, and we are able to provide a unique concept with various well-functioning partnerships in place. This deal with Besam further underpins our aim of becoming the world's leading interactive technical information company. We can clearly see how web platforms are becoming the base for robust technical information," says Joakim Zetterlund, deputy Managing Director at Semcon Informatic Consulting AB. Semcon is the market leader in technical information in Sweden, where Internet and multimedia solutions are gaining more and more ground. The business is run mainly on a consultancy basis, but in a very clear market trend many more customers are now ordering all their technical documentation production from Semcon.
