The High Tech companies of the Innovation Cluster gladly introduce themselves to you.

All the companies in the cluster belong within high-tech manufacturing industry and are involved with top sector high-tech systems. We use the term ‘high-tech systems’ in this context to mean industrial activities aimed at the development and production of appliances, instruments, machines, mechanized equipment and systems, automotive, trucks, buses, aircraft, and ships.

Characteristic properties of high-tech systems are:

  • Highly intelligent (embedded systems, software, sensors)
  • Highly accurate (nano-electronics, high precision manufacturing)
  • Highly efficient (mechatronics)
  • All participating companies  have these characteristics, as do companies interested in joining.

Five of the thirteen companies in the Innovationcluster are Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). They are self-creating, internationally active and deliver to end users, which may be consumers or other companies. The other companies mainly focus on system innovation and partly on system integration. They are also international players.
