The new business unit for civil security makes Saab’s product and service portfolio clearer for the customers. This increases the opportunities on the international market and consequently the potential for stronger growth within this sector.
In the last three years Saab has increased its yearly sales from SEK 400 million to
SEK 1 billion in the field of civil security. Saab sees big opportunities within civil security and therefore it is even more important to differentiate the Saab brand within the area. The new business unit will build on civil security resources from Saab Communication, Saab Systems and Combitech. Gunilla Fransson, present President and Managing Director of Saab Communication, has been appointed President and Managing Director of the new business unit.
“The overall responsibility and much of Saab’s expertise in civil security is now being brought together. This gives us a clearer profile and stronger brand within civil security. The customers will get a clearer other party and Saab’s internal efficiency will increase”, says Gunilla Fransson.
The defence sections of Saab Communication will be integrated into Saab Systems, Combitech and Saab Aerotech, which will strengthen their defence profile. The new civil security business unit will be operational from 1 July 2008 and will have about 350 employees. The reorganisation will not result in any redundancy.
Saab serves the global market with world-leading products, services and solutions ranging from military defence to civil security. Saab has operations and employees on all continents and constantly develops, adopts and improves new technology to meet customers’ changing needs.
