The decision to relocate the Copenhagen-based element of the companys production and service function forms part of a long-term growth and efficiency strategy outlined last year by Hasselblad management.
Hasselblad CEO Dr. Larry Hansen said We plan to implement strategies that will continue to provide our customers with the premium quality service they exp ect from Hasselblad.
In this case, we believe this is best achieved by managing this vital element of our business in the future from a single centre in Sweden. As a result, our deliveries will be more efficient and turnaround times for customers across the world will be reduced.
He added Regrettably this relocation means we had to make redundancies in Copenhagen but we ensured resources for providing needed care to our customers.
Hasselblad also plans a move from its current Copenhagen administrative HQ to new modern premises closer to the airport in August.
Dr. Hansen said Our old building has served us well in the past but now its not really fit for our purposes in the 21st century. Our new high-tech premises, complete with international standard conference facilities and a more convenient location, provide us with the ultra-modern offices we need for the future.
