Electronics

 

In close cooperation with suppliers and customers, the business area offers tailored electronics solutions for the manufacturing industry. The solutions are based on components and systems from world-leading manufacturers in areas such as microwave and shielding, semiconductors,
TFT displays, embedded computors, HMI as well as storage media. The range also includes special cabling and insulation materials as well as electromechanical components for use in connector, sensor and switch technology.

Market and customers
The business area's operations are mainly conducted in the company EG Electronics which has its own sales offices in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, UK, Germany, USA, China and India. The business area also has a production company for electronics and cabling in Poland. The customer base spans most industrial segments, but the largest customers are found among manufacturers of telecom equipment, commercial vehicles, industrial automation and digital signage.  Many of these customers operate globally and have production facilities in several countries.

Three companies were added to the business area through acquisitions in 2019. All three are specialists in different niches within digital communication. The first was the British company Distec based in Manchester. This was followed by two Swedish companies, Swetouch and Leeroy Digital Signage. As a result of these acquisitions the business area has significantly strengthened its offering of customised solutions involving displays, enclosures and control panels as well as turnkey digital signage solutions including design, configuration and hardware.  

Niched products with a high technical content
A large share of the product offering is made up of niched components and systems that are designed for use in customer-specific applications and in demanding environments. The business area therefore works closely with the customers and often in design-in projects, where
the sales staff and product specialists support the customers in their product development with requirement specifications, prototype development, testing and adaptations. This places high demands on the employees’ technical expertise and understanding of the customers’ operations.

Another key competitive advantage is the ability to offer global and effective logistics solutions, which is possible through an efficient central warehouse in Stockholm and integrated logistics centres in USA and Hong Kong.
