Kitron Selected as Main Supplier of Electronics for CROWS


Reading time ( words)

Kitron has signed a long-term manufacturing agreement expected to generate revenues of NOK 300 million with Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace AS for electronic modules that are part of Kongsberg's weapon control system, remote weapon station (RWS).

"This is a very important agreement with significant potential for Kitron," said Kitron CEO Peter Nilsson. 

On Friday 14 September, Kongsberg announced a new framework agreement with the U.S. Army for its version of the RWS M153 CROWS (Common Remotely Operated Weapon Stations).

For Kitron's factories in the U.S. and Norway the CROWS program is expected to generate annual revenues of NOK 60 million over the next five years. Volume depends on demand and the annual budgetary procedure in the United States and might therefore be both lower or higher.

What's Up in Scandinavia's EMS Industry?

09/18/2017 | Dieter G. Weiss, Weiss Engineering
Scandinavia, consisting of Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Finland, is relatively small in regards to the overall European EMS revenues, and counts for less than 6% of the European EMS production value. Nevertheless, more than 160 companies offer EMS services, not to mention companies who only manufacture cable harnesses or just do design work, box building, and after-sales services.
