“The project has had a major impact on our technology portfolio, production skills and financial situation, all in a positive light”, says Petter Gabrielsen, Sales and Marketing Manager T&G Elektro.
T&G Elektro has been a supplier to BAE Systems Hägglunds on the recent CV90 upgrade to Norway. T&G was also a supplier on the original CV90 vehicle, delivered to the Norwegian Army in the 1980s.
T&G produced all cable systems to the vehicle and from the very beginning, has been heavily involved in designing and improving the cable systems jointly with engineers from BAE Systems Hägglunds. From the first chassis onwards, T&G was already measuring both with design software and by hand to make sure all the cable systems would fit perfectly.
T&G is a family owned company that has been operating since 1955.
“This proves T&G is a versatile supplier that has invested continuously in people, development, test and production equipment.Over the last three years, we have had at least 30 people working full time with producing, designing and handling. The project has had a major impact on our technology portfolio, production skills and financial situation, all in a positive light. The project has also given us a great marketing potential, with material to promote us as a “partner of choice” for BAE Systems”, says Petter Gabrielsen, Sales and Marketing Manager T&G Elektro.
“BAE Systems Hägglunds also provided us with a marketing video that they made specifically for T&G. This is something we use every time we visit customers or exhibit at trade exhibitions."
“Overall T&G has been very fortunate to be selected by BAE Systems Hägglunds. We think our competence and flexibility together with our knowledge were the key reasons why we were selected as partner."
