Saabs purchase of Kockums is finalised

Skip to newslisting

All parts of the business deal are finalised and the Swedish Competition Authority has given its approval. With Saabs purchase of Kockums (ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems, TKMS AB) Sweden has secured the availability to both knowledge and immaterial rights in the area of submarines. This means that Sweden’s unique ability to construct, build and maintain Swedish designed submarines may be further developed

FMV is looking very positively on that we now have reached a new industrial solution, according to FMV General Director Lena Erixon. We are now in the position to go further and build a long lasting relationship with Saab Kockums and by doing this secure the underwater capability that is crucial for the Swedish defence. Since FMV already earlier has secured the immaterial rights to the submarine-technology, Sweden is now also in a position to act freely in pursuing international partners for cooperation in this area.

 This new acquisition will be a new business area within Saab, that allready have abilities in related areas.
