LINKOPING, Sweden, Aug. 16 (UPI) -- Sweden's Saab is opening a new office in Denmark as it continues to expand its high-tech defense and security communications business in the country.
The office will be inaugurated in Sonderborg on Friday by Danish Defense Minister Peter Christensen.
"We want to expand our overall presence in Denmark and to provide Saab's innovative and high-technological systems and solutions within defense and security to the Danish market," said Heino Lundgren, chief executive officer of Saab in Denmark and head of Saab's Communication Solutions business area.
Saab in Denmark is transforming itself from a product supplier to a solution provider, offering full system integration of highly advanced communication systems, or TactiCall, for domestic and international military and civil domains.
In the past four years it has more than doubled its turnover and recruited more than 30 new employees -- increasing staffing more than one-third in total.
