Autoliv: “We’re always looking for new suppliers”
Autoliv is one of the world’s biggest manufacturers of vehicle safety systems. Its vision is to continue growing, which also means that the company is constantly on the lookout for new suppliers.
“We like it when suppliers tell us what it is we need,” says Jesper Frykestig, purchasing manager at Autoliv Sweden AB.
Autoliv Sweden is best known for its vehicle safety systems. Previously the focus was on passive safety but now the company is focusing more on proactive safety products. One example would be an in-car surveillance camera that predicts and prevents a possible crash before it can happen. This focus on a new market segment also increases Autoliv’s need for new suppliers.
An important fair for Danish subcontractors
Sweden is still one of Denmark’s most important trading partners in the world. And Danish subcontractors can offer high-quality speciality products.
“Elmia Subcontractor is crucial for their contact with the Swedish market,” says Marianne Peters, head of the trade department at Denmark’s embassy in Stockholm.
The joint Danish stand in Hall B held a reception on Wednesday at Elmia Subcontractor. The Danish embassy in Stockholm hosted the event and Marianne Peters spoke to a large gathering of interested visitors and exhibitors.
Subcontractor Connect – meetings that pay off
“An efficient forum for meetings with a good return.” That’s one of many positive comments about this year’s matchmaking event, Subcontractor Connect, which paired up 110 companies in about 500 business meetings.
Carefully matched business meetings pay off. That was absolutely clear after Subcontractor Connect was held for the tenth time.
“Previously we have sometimes had even more meetings booked, but both we as the organisers and the participating companies have become more select about who we match with whom. That leads to good results,” explains Carina Lahall, coordinator of Subcontractor Connect.
