About Heavy Vehicles
In southern Sweden there is a cluster of successful companies and in 2006 they joined the “Association of Heavy Vehicles” (Tunga fordon). A typical member company manufactures small series vehicles with advanced technology and a very high degree of customization. They are active within the sectors of forestry, construction and heavy material handling. Vehicles from the south of Sweden create value all over the world and are known for their quality and endurance.
The Association is run by the RISE Research Institutes of Sweden. The RISE institutes Innventia, SP, and Swedish ICT have merged in order to become a stronger research and innovation partner. Through our international collaboration programmes with academia, industry, and the public sector, we ensure the competitiveness of the Swedish business community on an international level and contribute to a sustainable society. Our 2,200 employees support and promote all manner of innovative processes, and our roughly 100 testbeds and demonstration facilities are instrumental in developing the future-proofing of products, technologies, and services. RISE is fully owned by the Swedish state. www.ri.se
