Huddig participates in a program towards digitalization
October 24th was the start date for the project “Kickstart Digitalization”, a venture undertaken by RISE (Research Institute of Sweden), Teknikföretagen and IF Metall. The idea behind this program is to build and secure competitive companies for the future. From having been in second place globally when it comes to digitalized countries, Sweden has been slipping lately. The goal is to retake the position in the lead within this area and Huddig is one of the companies attending in this project.
Huddig has this far attended a kickoff and a workshop. The second workshop starts on Monday, December 5th. Jan-Erik Johansson, site manager, will represent Huddig in this project.
Why is Huddig a part of this project and what do you hope to gain?
We are participating in this project for several reasons; both to monitor our external environment, and also to learn from each other. Finally, to improve our own efficiency and our ways of working.
What are you working on in this project?
We continue to work on a number of ongoing projects within Huddig that are related to this area. We also share our experience and pick up ideas to learn from the other participating companies.
Are there any particular areas where you see digitalization as the future for Huddig?
There are already several existing areas that we have identified, the question is where to start. We see great potential within administration and production, and especially in our product.
How do you see the company changing in the next five to ten years?
We will be more integrated with digitalization than we are today. We will also have a higher output ratio since everything will be interconnected.
Kickstart Digitization is a venture undertaken in cooperation between the RISE (Research Institute of Sweden), Engineering Industries and IF Metall in order to contribute to the successful development of Swedish companies in an increasingly digitalized world. Digitization affects the private and public sectors in a way that resembles the industrialization 200 years ago. Hudiksvall is the first city to parttake in this venture that aims to mobilize companies throughout Sweden.
