Scania’s vision is to be the leading company in its industry by creating lasting value for its customers, employees, shareholders and other stakeholders.
Today Scania is a leading manufacturer of heavy trucks, buses and coaches and industrial and marine engines. In addition, the company offers and sells a broad range of service-related products and financing services.
Scania operates in some 100 countries and has 34,000 employees. Of these, 2,400 work with research and development – mainly in Sweden, close to the company’s production units. Scania’s corporate purchasing department is supplemented by local procurement offices in Poland, the Czech Republic, the United States and China. Production takes place in Europe and Latin America. In addition, about 20,000 people work in Scania’s independent sales and service organisation.
Scania’s identity is shaped by its customers and products – vehicles, services and financing – and by the people in the company, their values and working methods. Three core values – “customer first”, “respect for the individual” and “quality” – tie the company together and form the basis of Scania’s culture, leadership and business success.
Scania’s modular product system, with a limited number of main components, allows a high degree of customisation, while keeping down the cost of product development and production as well as parts management. Tailoring each vehicle to specific transport needs gives the customer better overall operating economy.
Scania should contribute to sustainable economic growth, for the company, our customers and society at large. As an industry leader in sustainable efforts, Scania works together with governments, customers and organisations to provide reliable energy-efficient products and solutions that increase customer efficiency and contribute to a more sustainable society.
