Some insights from FB Chain's parent company Addtech

Written by Pamela Peacock on 07 Feb 2019

FB Chain regularly collaborates with a number of our sister companies within the Addtech group, with our current efforts focused on our joint participation in a variety of industrial trade fairs taking place in 2019. 

While each company within the Addtech group has the freedom to operate independently within our niche areas, we're also strongly connected by our commitment to providing the highest quality components and systems within our different markets.  

In this blog post we take a closer look at the core values of the company by sharing some insights from the President of Addtech Customised Solutions, Tomas Pehrsson:

Addtech - a family who can team up when needed

Addtech-tomas-pehrsson-industrial-chain"Addtech has over 100 years of industrial history...

Today, our Customised Solutions business unit supplies almost all the major OEMs, with everything from electric motors and powertrains to sensors, pedals, joysticks and seat assemblies.

Through our daughter companies, we provide the components and systems that matter for machine efficiency and it’s likely by one of their names – Adigo, Caldaro, FB Chain, MCS or Sittab – that you’ll know us.

As a parent holding company, we support our subsidiaries – mostly small and medium-sized enterprises – with the financial, process and IT back-up of a large organisation but allow them the freedom and responsibility to get on with what they do best.

This makes us extremely flexibly and agile in adapting to market needs. Our group of small companies are led by self-driven, passionate people with an entrepreneurial spirit.

The decision-making chain is short and we offer bespoke solutions on short lead times. Contrast this with a larger supplier who may be slower to act and not even want to produce a customised product unless high volumes are guaranteed.

Adding value

Our goal is to do something more than just supply a product – we want to add value.

We are always looking to push boundaries and approach our customers with new technologies and new thinking. We love it when a customer has tough demands because that brings out our best side.

And we're dedicated to helping our customers overcome challenges in both the design and manufacture of their end products. Simplicity and efficiency are the watchwords here.

You’ll also discover how the companies within this group can team up with each other, or any other Addtech company, to design and deliver integrated systems for customers.

The collaboration between Adigo and Caldaro, to provide components for the Avant Tecno all-electric e6 compact loader, is a prime example.

Even when we’re not directly working together, many of our customers are the same.

We speak the same language and share knowledge, which allows us to develop a deeper understanding of our customers’ needs overall."
