There is reason to Alteams' slogan "Global Partners - Local Commitment". Despite the fact that the volume production at the Swedish foundry Alteams Stilexo has moved away, Alteams Group is still one of the largest light metal foundry groups in the Nordic region. In addition to this, Alteams Group has a rapidly growing business in India and China.
Alteams Group, which is owned by the Finnish recycling group Kuusakoski, has its activities divided into two customer segments: NET (Communication Networks) and MET (Mechatronics). The common denominator is cast aluminum, produced in die casting, permanent mold, sand casting and rheocasting processes. Alteams Group has a total of about 50 casting machines with clamping forces from 160 to 2200 tons and realizes a turnover of EUR 100 million (2010) with a total of 1500 employees in Sweden, Finland, China, India and Estonia.
Sales and Technology Center in Sweden - Alteams Stilexo
Today there are currently five people working at the company Alteams Stilexo, which is located in Skillingaryd in the Småland region. This location is a very important hub in the Alteams Group, due to the proximity to the major telecommunications customers and is an excellence center for sales and engineering within the Alteams Group.
The site manager, Daniel Eklund, is also responsible for eighteen employees at Alteams Eesti in Estonia, where Alteams Group has its hub for the supply of castings within Europe. Working fully in line with the company’s slogan, he emphasizes that they are running the projects locally, but with a global anchorage. This means that methoding and engineering is done in Skillingaryd, while the actual production is placed where it fits the best. In this way, the customer is given a greater ability to reach the market with their products in the shortest possible time.
