Saab com­bines US de­fence op­er­a­tions

SP's MAI - - CORPORATE -

Global de­fence and se­cu­rity com­pany Saab an­nounced the es­tab­lish­ment of Saab De­fense and Se­cu­rity USA LLC. This rep­re­sents the con­sol­i­da­tion of sev­eral US-based Saab de­fence com­pa­nies into a sin­gle US de­fence and home­land se­cu­rity provider. Shared man­age­ment struc­tures and se­cu­rity gov­er­nance will in­crease syn­er­gies and im­prove ef­fi­ciency. Saab’s goal is to build an ag­ile and re­spon­sive US com­pany able to de­liver in­no­va­tive, timely and highly-ef­fec­tive so­lu­tions to meet lo­cal de­fence and se­cu­rity needs. Saab De­fense and Se­cu­rity USA LLC (SDAS) brings to­gether the op­er­a­tions of the for­mer sep­a­rate le­gal en­ti­ties, Saab Train­ing USA LLC, Saab Bar­racuda LLC, Saab Sup­port and Ser­vices LLC, and the de­fence el­e­ments of the Saab Sen­sis Cor­po­ra­tion, into a sin­gle or­gan­i­sa­tional struc­ture.

Jonas Hjelm, Head of Saab’s Amer­i­cas Mar­ket Area, states, “even when viewed against the back­ground of the cur­rent bud­get sit­u­a­tion, the US de­fence and se­cu­rity mar­ket rep­re­sents nearly 50 per cent of the to­tal global mar­ket. This makes it very im­por­tant for Saab to so­lid­ify its po­si­tion and grow its pres­ence in the US.” vol­un­teer­ing, on­go­ing Boe­ing char­i­ta­ble and busi­ness in­vest­ments in the re­gion in­clude schol­ar­ships, spon­sor­ships, and col­lege re­cruit­ing ef­forts at Univer­sity of Texas at El Paso and New Mex­ico State Univer­sity, as well as ed­u­ca­tion ini­tia­tives re­lated to sci­ence, tech­nol­ogy, engineering and math­e­mat­ics.
