-We already have an extensive business relationship with the Swedish Transport Administration. It is about delivering safety and quality cost-effectively, so also on this contract, says Björn Lindbäck, work manager at NYAB Infrastructure.
-This type of basic maintenance agreement is the NYAB Group's first, which is of course gratifying. No news for me personally though. Our ambition is to deliver a high quality not only to the Swedish Transport Administration, but also to road users. The road network is a hub that society's residents, businesses and industries need to have a high quality of, says Tord Isaksson, responsible site manager at NYAB Infrastructure.
-This contract gives NYAB a multi-year base which, together with our existing operations in eastern Norrbotten, gives us great opportunities for synergies and coordination. We will look at opportunities to offer suppliers and subcontractors annual employment and larger volumes and thereby the opportunity for competitive growth in their respective companies together with us, Björn Lindbäck concludes.
