As a prime driver in the electronics industry, our world-leading and unique production solutions impact the very future of technology. And our technology is everywhere. Inside jet motors travelling the globe. Inside people as pace makers continue to save lives. Even in space, as NASA’s robot explores the lands of Mars. Right now, we are on a journey of growth, where we continue to explore new markets and expand worldwide. And on the road ahead, we need the right kind of people by our side. People, perhaps, much like you. The company spent 348 MSEK on R&D last year, corresponding to 15% of revenues.

The ambition to continue to grow remains and the company has communicated the objective to reach revenues of 5000 MSEK in 4-7 years’ time, from 2,319 MSEK in 2016.
