Semcon signs framework agreement with Kockums

Semcon signs framework agreement with Kockums Semcon AB has signed a framework agreement with Kockums AB. The agreement covers co-operation between the companies and means, in principle, that Semcon will supply more consultancy services to Kockums than it currently does. Semcon's framework agreement with Kockums is for future assignments in construction and product development, sustainability studies, technical information and production technology. "This is an important agreement for us. It will mainly benefit our offices in Malmö and Karlskrona, where Kockums is located. It will also mean assignments for many departments around the country," says Jonas Arvidsson, Regional Manager of Semcon South. Both Kockums and Semcon have been anxious about getting the framework agreement established. "For Kockums it means that given the right conditions, we can utilise Semcon's wide range of technical ability. We should be able to work together in a way which benefits us both," says Hans Häggberg, Purchasing Manager at Kockums. Kockums purchases a large amount of consultancy services and places high demands on competence and information security. This applies especially to companies which Kockums signs framework agreements with. Semcon has previously carried out assignments for Kockums, including an advanced calculation and construction assignment for a pontoon bridge of high-tensile steel. Semcon's Karlskrona office is already working on a new assignment for Kockums. "Kockums works with very advanced technical solutions. Naturally we are proud and pleased about increasing our work for them," concludes Arvidsson.
