SaabTech serves notice to 200 employees

Today SaabTech served the county labour board notice regarding 200
employees involved in company operations in Järfälla, Kista and Uppsala.
Half of this group consists of development engineers, while the other
half are administrative personnel.

'We have had to serve notice because several of our major development
projects are entering the production phase without having been replaced
by new development orders of corresponding magnitude. At the same time,
this notice represents a rationalisation that strengthens our
competitive clout,' says Björn Erman, SaabTech's Managing Director.

'It's unfortunate but necessary that we implement these cutbacks. On the
other hand, the company will do its best to provide support to employees
who are affected by the change. '

SaabTech has begun negotiations with the relevant trade unions.

Saab is one of the world's leading high-technology companies, with its
main operations focusing on defence, aviation and space. The Group
covers a broad spectrum of competence and capability in systems
integration.
