Basically all industries, but our main focus is on vehicle, automation and robotics industries.
What are Axelent's strongest points?
If we’re talking about the Korean market, Axelent's products are quicker and easier to install than our local options. X-Key is another great product for quick and smooth handling.
What are the advantages of being part of the Axelent Group?
The Axelent Group is an experienced global group, so there is plenty to choose from. As it’s a well-known group it gives the customers a sense of stability.
How do you and your customers feel about Axelent being a Swedish company with its own production plant?
Our customers put great trust in this in the knowledge that Axelent always delivers on time.
What does the future hold?
I’m happy to say that we at SV Tech are looking at a very bright future. At the end of 2017, industrial safety laws were tightened in South Korea, leading to companies striving to improve their work environments, which opened the door for X-Guard. Being able to offer reduced installation times thanks to X-Guard is a good sales pitch. We have meetings with many large companies and we see a great future potential.
