GÖTEBORG, Sweden–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Semcon has signed a new agreement with China Euro Vehicle Technology AB
(CEVT) in Göteborg, Sweden, regarding aftermarket product information
solutions for a new range of vehicles. Up to 40 consultants in Sweden

customers in Sweden, UK, China and Germany. This new assignment is in
line with our strategic ambition to become the preferred partner of
aftermarket solutions to the automotive industry”, says Johan Ekener,

The cooperation with CEVT begins during spring 2016 and will include a
number of deliveries until the end of 2017. At the most, some 30-40 of
Semcon’s consultants in Sweden and China will be involved in the
delivery to CEVT, and much of the work will be done using Semcon’s
proprietary development environment for product information.

“By partnering with Semcon, CEVT will get access to extensive know-how
and very experienced people within the area of aftermarket product
information solutions. Semcon’s ability to ramp-up quickly and deliver
state-of-the-art solutions within a very short lead time have been a key
