Ratos Company Semcon spins off its Product Information business area, introduces Aleido
Semcon announces the successful spinoff of its Product Information business area, marking the official launch of new and stand-alone company Aleido. This strategic step has been taken to strengthen both businesses and to continue growing their offers, dedicated teams, and profitability.
The Product Information business area, with its 850 employees in five countries, is known for its expertise in creating user-friendly digital aftermarket solutions for complex products. As a global leader, it serves customers such as Volvo Cars, Tetra Pak, Alstom, AGCO, Jaguar Land Rover and Epiroc.
“At Ratos we are strong believers of a decentralised model and are convinced that it drives entrepreneurial spirit, growth and efficiencies. This move ensures that each company can follow its own independent growth journey and realise its true potential,” says Anders Slettengren, Chairman of the Board of Semcon and Aleido and Executive Vice President at Ratos.
Leaders in aftermarket information
Aleido specialises in both aftermarket information and learning solutions. Within aftermarket information, the company can draw on decades of experience and today support customers in five different markets. And thanks to recent acquisitions within learning, Aleido is the largest digital learning company in Scandinavia. Guided by its mission, ‘to make the advanced simply understood’, Aleido provides knowledge that bridges the gap between technology and people.
“This is a significant milestone, and we can proudly announce that the former Semcon business area, Product Information, is now a stand-alone company: Aleido. As we embark on this new journey, we're eager to embrace the opportunities ahead with even more focus and dedication,” says Johan Ekener, CEO of Aleido.
A strategic technology partner
Semcon has more than 40 years of experience of product, production and service development. Going forward, it will pursue its strong position as an international technology partner for companies and organisations in transformation. With a unique offering combining engineering, digital excellence and sustainability know-how, Semcon’s experts and cross-functional teams makes its customers more competitive and improve the user experience and sustainability of their solutions.
“Every day, our experts add new perspectives that help create solutions that make a difference to people and the planet. With a more focused operation, we are now accelerating our combined offering to provide even greater customer value,” says Markus Granlund, CEO of Semcon.
