Operations and employees on all continents

Competing in the international market requires a strong global presence. We continue to strengthen our presence in key markets, develop innovative solutions and acquire companies in prioritized areas.

A local presence close to customers creates stronger relationships and collaborations and greater insight into customers’ needs. Better understanding these needs creates opportunities to develop the right combination of products and solutions, which in turn means that Saab also becomes more efficient and more focused on project execution, marketing and sales.

Our products are sold to over 100 countries and we currently operate in over 30 countries world wide. Research and development are concentrated in Sweden and we have employees mainly in Europe, South Africa, the U.S, Australia and Brazil. Read more about our markets
