Thales’ strategy is to boost its local presence by establishing local partnerships. In Sweden, we already have a significant number of collaborations with local subcontractors and partners and will, as new contracts arrive, continue to reach out to local expertise.
We recognise the high penetration of digital use and development in the Swedish market, and will continue to establish long-term cooperation with customers and partners. The markets we aim to address lie within digital security, transportation, aviation safety and defence & Security technology. The Nordic and Baltic cooperation within Thales Group also brings high levels of modernisation and increase capabilities for us and our partners.
In Sweden, Defence is a growing part of our business and Thales is actively pursuing a number of contracts that could transform our market share in this area.
