Press release
16 May, 2018 - Lund, Sweden
Axis Communications, global industry leader in network video and headquartered in Lund, Sweden, will open an R&D office for software development in Linköping in May. In a few years, Axis expects to have about one hundred employees in the new office.

“Axis is a growth company. Our strong focus on research and development is one of the cornerstones of our success. As we are growing rapidly, we have to look outside Lund to recruit the required competencies at the rate we need,” says Kenneth Jonsson, Vice President R&D at Axis Communications.

During 2017, Axis generated sales of just over SEK 8.6 billion, of which more than 18 percent were invested in R&D. At Axis headquarters in Lund, more than 1,000 people work with research and development of new products and solutions in areas such as network video, access control systems, audio systems and video analytics.

At the office in Linköping, software development will be in focus. The operations in Linköping will be started in cooperation with the consulting company HiQ. The plan is that around one hundred people will work at Axis in Linköping in a few years’ time. 

"We see many benefits of having an office in Linköping, where we find a combination of a good university and a well-functioning business community. This gives us a good basis for finding the right competencies and for pursuing successful R&D operations," says Jonsson.

Recruitment of employees has already begun, and the first people will start at Axis in Linköping at the end of May. Further recruitments will continue to be made going forward.
