New concept, new business!
By introducing a new production concept, while staying true to LEAX-quality in production and service we received a large, new order within Automotive.
Following multi-million investments (SEK) production starts in Falun, Sweden, Q2 2018, adjacent to LEAX Propeller Shaft site.
– Starting out it's an order over five years, worth some 120 MSEK, with production of 400 000 articles per year. We are extra pleased that the new order comes from an existing costumer that has chosen to widen their commitment with us, says Robert Seger, Key Account Manager.
Various competences within LEAX Group will be involved in the project during the pre-production phase. Among them turning, induction hardening, grinding and cutting. Elias Häggström is appointed Project Manager.
– We offer the customer great value for money by developing a faster, more automated production method. At the end of 2017 all machinery will be on site and set up for full run tests. Given that our experts in Falun have long experience of large production volumes and automated production we are confident that it´s the right place for our new production concept, Robert Seger reveals.
