Prevas Expanding with new office in Luleå

Prevas will be opening its newest office in Sweden on April 1. At the end of 2018, Prevas opened an office in Eskilstuna. Now it’s Luleå’s turn as expansion continues.

Luleå is an attractive city with both a rich business climate and an expansive university of technology. The focus for the office will primarily be on developing smart industries and helping customers to meet challenges and find new solutions for achieving sustainable production.

The goal is to add 10 staff members during 2019, and from a three-year perspective, to add about 20 more. Ola Bergkvist, well-known in the city, will head the Luleå office. Ola has nearly 25 years of experience from product organizations with operations in system development, hosting and administration, and has worked both with smaller Luleå companies such as Avantra and Zait, as well as larger companies such as Fontec, Sigma and Tieto.

“Establishing something new and challenging is going to be very interesting,” says Ola Bergkvist, head of operations in Luleå.

Prevas wants to join with customers and partners in utilizing the opportunities of the technology and digitalization, which is enabled through dedicated and curious staff in many fields. With the new office in Luleå, Prevas now has 17 offices in Sweden as well as offices in Denmark and Norway.

“Prevas has maintained a presence in Luleå for quite some time and it’s great to finally be opening an office here,” says Majid Meshkintorreh, in charge of Prevas operations in Gävle and the expansion in Luleå. “The new office will be located at Aurorum 1 in the Luleå Science Park, and we feel very fortunate to be able to welcome Ola to Prevas.”

Robotic automation, connected machines with condition monitoring, as well as data analysis with AI and machine learning, are just a few of the tools Prevas uses in customer projects to attain efficient and sustainable production.
