Westermo designs and manufactures data communications products for mission-critical systems in physically demanding environments. The products are used both in social infrastructure, such as transport, water and energy supplies, as well as in process industries, such as mining and petrochemical.
The requirement for industrial grade data communications continues to grow as industry understands that its needs differ from that of the corporate IT world. In industrial environments operating environments are tough, expected lifetimes are in excess of 10 years and the impact of failure in the field can lead to business threatening situations. These factors have resulted in a demanding and fast growing market place.
The company is growing rapidly and currently has over 200 employees and global sales in excess of €50m. All development and production takes place in Sweden at the company's facilities in Stora Sundby and Västerås.
Westermo has sales and support offices around Europe and in USA, Singapore, China and Australia. Westermo also have a number of partners based in other key markets around the world.
Westermo is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Beijer Group.
Westermo group facts:
Data communication networks have become critical to our day to day lives. Just about every service and system that we rely on is supported by a network of some sort. As these systems have evolved and increased in size and complexity, outages are now often considered to be unavoidable. At Westermo we don’t believe that needs to be the case and we are committed to providing robust and reliable solutions that maximise network availability, even for those functioning in the most challenging and extreme environments.
