About Swedish Powertrain

Swedish Powertrain offers a comprehensive and innovative range of systems and components
for the Powertrain of Heavy Commercial Vehicles.

We supply OEMs and Tier 1's in the areas of Engines, Gearboxes, Retarders, Propeller shafts and Driven Axles.

Product examples are Gearbox Housings, Planetary Carriers, Shafts and Gears for Engines, Gearboxes and Axles, Propeller Shafts, Differential Housings, Exhaust Manifolds and Hydraulic Blocks.

In order to secure raw material properties we produce casted parts in-house. Our aluminum casting plant is one of Northern Europe’s most modern gravity die-casting foundries. In a further plant we cast components in nodular and grey iron.

In addition to the in-house production our strong sourcing organization will find the best quality and low-cost suppliers for all other raw materials.

We are also engaged in research, development and prototyping. Projects include electrification support concepts for full and mild hybrid drives, gearboxes and electrically driven axles.

We have grown substantially over the years, but it is our vision to become the world's leading supplier of advanced machining and industrialisation for our demanding customers.

A strong set of values governs our actions and warrants further growth. One of our core values is to listen to our customers and to be in constant dialogue with them. The main reason why we are now present on three continents is that we have followed our customers demands.

Efficient and flexible industrialisation of projects is a core competence. Once in serial production, our belief is that constant improvements are needed to stay on top in a competitive market on a global scale. Consequently, we implemented that our skilled personnel works with standardized systems following Lean Manufacturing principles on all levels, from operator to top management.

We can make quick decisions resulting in fast time to market for customer projects.
