Five business areas
The global defence industry is currently undergoing an extensive transformation. To adapt to the new conditions in the industry, Saab has divided operations since 1 January 2010 into five business areas:
- Electronic Defence Systems
- Security and Defence Solutions
- Support and Services.
The goal is to create a more market-oriented company with even greater focus on customers’ future needs and requirements. This means, among other things, that Saab will continue to grow in the global market and develop distinctive customer offerings.
