Würth Elektronik in Sweden Continues to Expand

Reading time ( words)

Würth Elektronik Sweden AB has moved; significantly more space available. Würth Elektronik, manufacturer of electronic and electromechanical components for the electronics industry, is strengthening its activities in Scandinavia. The expansion in Sweden is the result of an extremely positive business development, and now enables the expansion of the sales office, back office, and customer services.

For Robert Vikman, the newly appointed General Manager of Würth Elektronik Sweden AB, this is the second move during his eight years with the company. Vikman has worked in the electronics industry since his time at ELFA (1995 to 2006).

"We are very happy that this branch is developing so successfully," Vikmann says happily. "Both ELFA and Würth Elektronik are family-owned, so there are a lot of similarities in the corporate culture. But, I particularly like Würth Elektronik and its concept. As an established manufacturer, we can offer free components for prototypes, all simulations, footprints, and 3D files directly on our website, and guarantee 98% availability on the more than 50,000 components in our range. Few manufacturers can do that."

"Now, we have space to grow even more," Vikmann continues, "and space is what we need, because we want to expand our technical field and office service. We currently have almost 30 employees in Sweden. Joining the team now are a digital sales manager, who exclusively handles online digital customer calls from our studio in the new office, and a technician for our online chat via the website. We are also expanding our range of wireless modules in the areas of Bluetooth, LTE, Wi-Fi, and sensors, which in turn increases customer demand for local support. I look forward to what lies ahead now."

Vikmann extends a big thank you to his predecessor CEO Martin Danielsson, who is moving on to new responsibilities outside the company after 18 years in the Würth family.
