Technological excellence helping to keep Britain safe
Our UK presence has been growing at pace bringing together the best of Swedish and British innovation. We work closely with our customers to ensure that they obtain advanced solutions for their requirements, whilst harnessing our ingrained approach to ensuring value for money.
Currently employing 300 people across seven sites, with a multi-million-pound supply chain that supports many thousands of British jobs, we expect this to increase further in the coming years. By partnering with our UK customers and industry we deliver innovative, solutions to complicated, multi-dimensional problems. Saab anticipates the threats of tomorrow and through collaboration ensures that our thinking edge pushes the boundaries.
We invest in UK R&D – in 2019 we established the Saab UK Innovation Network centered at Imperial College London’s I-Hub. Today we are approaching 10 funded doctoral research programs into emerging technologies across four universities. In 2021 we also opened our Saab Technology Centre at Cody Park in Farnborough which forms the foundation for growing our British IP base.
