Saab Deutschland plans to create a new facility for its Product Unit Naval Systems in the currently under construction SPURWERK complex in Bremen. The new location, measuring 1,680 square meters, will house more than 100 staff. In line with Saab Deutschland’s growth goal, the Bremen facility will act as a software development hub. The Wilhelmshaven site, as well as its project office, will continue to operate and expand. Saab Deutschland is currently outfitting four Brandenburg-class (F123) frigates with the sophisticated Combat Management System (9LV), which will be improved further.
“I am delighted that we are opening another facility for our marine sector in Bremen. This reflects the growing significance of Saab in Germany. Outside of Sweden, Germany is the largest market for Saab in Europe. We will continuously enhance our expertise to support the German Navy in this era of transformation with cutting-edge technology,” says Anders Sjöberg, CEO of Saab Deutschland GmbH.
