Sweden: Westermo Creates Train Networks Division

Westermo has moved to create a dedicated train networks division within the Westermo Group to provide the highest levels of support to the train industry.

A core team in Västerås, Sweden will lead the global sales and support activities with specialists at customer centers in key locations around the world.

The train network organisation will be headed by Erik Danielsson, previously group vice president, industry segment business, at ABB Control Technologies. Erik has deep and broad industrial high tech experience. After graduating as Master's of Science, his career has included time working internationally as well as in R&D roles and as a director of product line management.

“Erik’s experience will be a valuable addition to our train networks team as we strive to further increase our momentum in the market place and build our capability as a world leading player in the train market,” said Lars-Ola Lundkvist, Westermo CEO.

The new organisation will be Westermo’s base for further increased investments in train network technology and capability development. It is Westermo’s ambition to be an even stronger value providing technology partner for companies in the train industry.
