How do you and your customers feel about Axelent being a Swedish company with its own production plant?
“Personally, I think the processes should be managed in Sweden in order to produce a ‘typical Swedish quality product’. In other words, manufacturing should take place in Sweden. The high level of automation helps to reduce the cost gap between us and companies that manufacture in low income countries.
Italian customers regard Swedish-made products as being excellent quality. The large number of off-the-shelf products at Axelent eliminates waiting times and gives you a high quality product and speedy delivery.”
How does the future look?
“From an Italian perspective it's always about profit and growth.”
