Rickard Alfredson, Tanja Cronqvist, and Rashin Kabodvand launch three new companies within Sigma Technology Group to strengthen the Group’s position in the IT sector in Stockholm.
Sigma Technology aims to break new ground in Stockholm and offer first-class services in digitalization, Cloud, software design, and system development. With an already established presence in Sweden’s capital and having a total staff of over 2,000 people, Sigma Technology launches three new companies that will continue to support customers on their digitalization journey in all lines of business, from industry, retail, and FinTech to the public sector.
2020 was a challenging year for the Swedish industry and society, with shutdowns and lockdowns due to COVID-19. Still, Sigma Technology chose to follow its strategy for the year and in late autumn 2020, announced a major investment in seven new companies starting in Q4 2020 and Q1 2021. Sigma Technology sees a continuing increased need for digitalization and automated solutions among its customers.
“We see that the need for digitalization and electrification competence and capacity is long-term and almost insatiable. We position ourselves as a top player in our customer segments and now choose to further expand our business to meet market needs. The success of our organizational model lies in using the energy and drive from entrepreneurial companies that together form Sigma Technology Group,” says Carl Vikingsson, CEO of Sigma Technology Group.
“We realize that the market and our customers are starting to recover. The shift to remote and digital solutions makes smart automation and software services more relevant than ever. We launched two new companies in Malmö and Gothenburg during the last months of 2020 and have seen a huge demand for digitalization, electrification, and connectivity services. Therefore, we continue with our investment and launch three more companies in Stockholm, as well as a company in Malmö and another one in Oslo,” says Johan Edlund, Vice President of Sigma Technology Group.
During January and February 2021, Sigma Technology has launched three new companies in the Stockholm area. It is the company’s largest investment ever in the capital. The plan is to continue providing customers with a range of first-class services and competencies within digitalization and system development. Sigma Technology has made key recruitments, and the CEOs of the three new companies all come from large IT consulting companies in the Stockholm area. The new companies will complement Sigma Technology’s offering in the Swedish capital within IT, R&D, product information, and solutions for embedded systems.
In connection with the openings, Sigma Technology will move to new premises located in the heart of Stockholm on Hornsgatan 1. The new companies’ ambition is to create more than 300 jobs in Stockholm over the next three years.
