Industrial Cooperation

We believe in strong and resilient supplier relationships, which are critical in allowing us to meet our customer's expectations.
Real partnership – Real advantage
BAE System Hägglunds is committed to building strong working relationships that will continue for long time. Through open communication, mutual cooperation and a commitment to high standards, we strive for success with all our suppliers.
 
Global Partner
Being a part of the global BAE Systems, we offer opportunities for participation in defense contracts in global marketplaces. We are constantly searching for new technologies, new production capabilities and new suppliers.
 
There are no secrets behind working successfully with industrial cooperation. It is about finding solutions that are beneficial for each party and having the experience, competence and strength to carry out the work.
 
At BAE Systems Hägglunds this work is always given high priority. One clear testimony to this is that all of our products are designed for outsourced production. This has been achieved through well-defined product interfaces supported by a contracting methodology enabling participation of in-country industries at different levels of the product, appropriate for their business.
 
Creative tools and requirements
BAE Systems Hägglunds has developed a creative and innovative approach toward industrial cooperation including technology transfer, loan and investment support, marketing support to new markets and support to SME companies. Performed correctly, these are outstanding tools for the development of all involved parties: in-country industries, the economy in the customer’s countries and the customer themselves, as well as BAE Systems Hägglunds.
 
All of our industrial cooperation activities are managed from a specialized department dealing with industrial cooperation and offset. Key support functions are the procurement department and the production department. For each contract, a single point of contact will be established with the selected suppliers.
 
The selection of suppliers for an industrial cooperation concept starts with suppliers responding to our Business Partner Questionnaire and assuring compliance with the Supplier Principles for suppliers working with BAE Systems Hägglunds.
 
An impressive track record
BAE Systems Hägglunds has a long experience of setting up industrial cooperation concept with in-country suppliers in Europe, Asia, Canada and North America.
