A strong consultancy office opens in KistaThe biggest technical consultancy office in Kista, just outside Stockholm, is being officially opened today. The background to this is a growing demand for the ÅF-Groups advanced technical consulting services in, among other fields, medical technology, mobile telephony, software and IT, electronics, and the engineering industry. This has created the conditions for the ÅF-Groups establishment of a new office in Kista. Among other things, the Groups operations in Sollentuna will relocate to the new office.
- Our new office will allow us to continue our strong expansion, - states Anders Tysander, Managing Director of ÅF-Industriteknik. - Our ambition is to have almost 400 employees in Kista in a years time. We have adapted the new office to work well within a project-oriented organisation, with more or less permanent project groups who will often operate beyond company borders. The new office will have considerable flexibility and will meet the individuals need of privacy as well as the project groups need to meet, collaborate and exchange information.
The office also includes a complete electronics laboratory, assembly hall and shop to deal with advanced development projects and to produce prototypes and finished products.
- In this way, concludes Anders Tysander, we have obtained cost-effective premises which very well meet the demands and wishes of our customers and the consultants themselves.
The official opening is being broadcast live on the companys website, www.af.se/kista. You can already visit the new office on the Internet via Quick Time Virtual Reality.
