The KB Group celebrated its 70th anniversary in 2017, having grown from a small family-held company to a global group of companies. Our sales are now over SEK 1 billion, and we have more than 800 employees across six production units in Europe, Asia and the Americas. Our largest customers are in the automotive industry, including Volvo Cars, VW, Audi and Mercedes. In addition to the automotive industry, we serve major industrial customers such as Kinnarps, FM Mattsson and Philips.

 

KB Components employees are part of an industrial elite delivering the development and production of high-tech polymer components to the most demanding customers in the market. We contribute to sustainable development by working with our customers to develop energy-efficient and recyclable products for a better and greener world. Many of our employees are specialists in automation, injection-moulding and mould design , but you’ll also find cutting-edge expertise in other areas such as sales, quality, sourcing and technology.

SALES

Sales are coordinated globally because many of our customers have production in more than one of our units. All major customers have a key account manager (KAM) who serves as the customer’s interface with KB Components. The most important task of the Sales department is to find new business and ensure that the products we manufacture are profitable.
