Ricardo opens office in Gothenburg to strengthen presence in Scandinavia

  • Ricardo has opened an office in Gothenburg, Sweden as part of the company’s growth in Scandinavia
  • The office will be managed by Per-Inge Kruse, who has joined Ricardo as Head of Business Development for Scandinavia

Ricardo has today announced that it is strengthening its presence in Scandinavia by opening an office in Gothenburg in Sweden.

Located in Gothenburg, the centre of the Swedish automotive sector, the office enables the company to offer OEMs in the region full-service engineering consultancy in virtual engineering, connectivity, digital resilience, propulsion systems, battery technology and electric vehicles - which are key technical challenges for them currently – as well as access to the company’s proven capability in low volume niche manufacturing.

As part of the company’s commitment to be the trusted technical partner for OEMs in the region, the Gothenburg office will host Tech Days for key players in the Scandinavian automotive, off-highway and commercial vehicles sectors in early 2020.

The Gothenburg office is managed by Per-Inge Kruse who has recently joined Ricardo as Head of Business Development for Scandinavia.

Ricardo’s Commercial Director Ian Penny said:

“Multi-nationals and Swedish companies doing business internationally demand an international engineering company. Our customers are enthusiastic about our innovative approach to some of the biggest global challenges facing OEMs in the automotive and commercial vehicle sector currently, and we are regarded as their trusted technical adviser in helping them to find solutions.”

“Growing our presence in Sweden demonstrates our increasing commitment to our customers across the region, and strengthens access for industry players in Scandinavia to our engineering platform across mainland Europe, China, the USA and the UK.”
