Increased demand

Increased demand

Jan Brattberg, Managing Director Driveline Solutions

How would you summarise 2021?
“We entered 2021 with a strong order book and many positive expectations. Despite the challenges in the industry with constraints in material supply and transport of goods, we have ­managed well. We have seen a ­substantial increase in demand for our products, services and expertise. I am proud of the efforts from our people to make this happen.”

We see a strong trend towards ­hybrid and electrified drivelines with an increasing need for ­integration services.

What were the highlights?
“In the second half of 2021, we welcomed two new companies to the Driveline Solutions family, MIAS Filter and MIAS Cylinderfabrik. During the year, we have also initiated a new forum concept for collaboration and knowledgesharing within Driveline Solutions, to further develop group synergies. We also have a number of new and exciting projects in driveline electrification and welcomed many talented employees to our companies.”

Where is the best potential for ­further growth?
“The main markets for Driveline Solutions remain positive. We will continue our efforts towards more sustainable solutions, and we see a strong trend towards hybrid and electrified drivelines with an ­increasing need for integration services. We are also working towards a more comprehensive technical ­offering to build extended customer value in our group companies. At the same time, we want to grow by acquiring new companies with the right skillset, mindset and offering to the market.”
