Divided for strength
From today, 1st April, LEAX Skaraborg will be officially divided into two separate legal entities: LEAX Tidaholm AB in Tidaholm and LEAX Skaraborg AB in Falköping, Sweden.
“In Tidaholm large and casted items are produced with long processing time and low degree of automation and in Falköping, on the other hand, we have a higher level of automation and larger volumes. Out of the differences in the business we see a need of different strategies and by the division we can put a bigger focus to strengthen each site – says Joakim Sandberg, Business Area Manager.
Staffing will remain unchanged at each site.
