SKF launches software centre for condition monitoring in Sweden
The market for products and services related to monitoring the condition of machinery within the industry is growing. SKF is making a major investment by opening a software centre in Sweden in order to develop next generation technology for condition monitoring.
“We are currently recruiting and the unit will include around 50 developers, most of whom will be based in Gothenburg,” says Fredrik Magnusson, who is in charge of the new software development unit at SKF.
The change follows SKF Group’s decision to concentrate all competences for the development of hardware and software for Europe in Gothenburg and Luleå in Sweden, and Aberdeen and Livingston in Scotland. The largest unit will be located in Gothenburg and will be responsible for the software development of next generation technology.
“From a global perspective, locating the centre in Gothenburg provides a strategic benefit. We have advanced a great deal in western Sweden in terms of developing the Internet of Things, digitalization and smart solutions for the industry. Many large corporations have concentrated their expertise in this field here. This is where things are happening,” says Fredrik.
“We also view it as an advantage to be close to the head office and other research units within SKF.”
