Some years ago, the Lesjöfors company Stumpp + Schüle signed a major business deal with a supplier to an electrical car producer. The required component is a technical complex and qualitative part for a specific car model. Recently, the demand for the part has expanded to also include Asia.
Thanks to a close cooperation with transfer of technology and know-how from Stumpp + Schüle, the Lesjofors China factory is now successfully manufacturing the part. The search for additional dual location supply for parts are ongoing. Next step in the localisation project will be a local-to-local solution in other continents.
“The business and customer base of the Lesjöfors Group is constantly changing and expanding from new sales and acquisitions. Many of our customers are global companies operating in tough competition. As a supplier, we must be able to provide a competitive set-up in order to keep and expand our business,” comments Mikael Andersson, MD of Lesjöfors China and VP Lesjöfors Asia.
“Our group has a unique opportunity thanks to our geographical presence in many countries to offer a highly competitive set-up. By making the most out of our strengths and use our synergies, we can sharpen our offers and provide local-to-local solutions to customers.”
