  4. 4. Scania’s new President and CEO Martin Lundstedt sees great growth potential for Scania’s service business. “We have seen similar developments in Tur- key, in South America and in Russia. The lesson is that if we don’t make our investments in time, it will cost us significantly more later on. That is why we are expanding our production and ser- vice capacity.” How will Scania’s service business grow? “I believe that the strongest driving force for service growth can be found among custom- ers themselves. Because of greater competition, they have to concentrate on their core business and outsource other work − among others to Scania. Customers with this approach towards us are good for Scania. They demand com- plex solutions and a high degree of dedication on our part. We must also expand our service business to keep pace with the growth in the number of Scania vehicles on the roads in our markets, for example in Asia. This expansion occurs in many cases together with partners and employing mobile solutions.” How do you view the short-term market situation? “It is very uncertain. We have to be prepared to reduce our costs and to be highly flexible, in all our operations. It is not a matter of stopping machinery or putting things on the back burner. But we have to work with different scenarios and be ready if the economic situation worsens.” Since 2000, Volkswagen has been Scania’s “It is not a matter of stopping machinery or main shareholder, and today your compet- itor MAN is also part of the Volkswagen putting things on the back burner.

I feel confident in them as our main shareholder. Volkswagen’s strategy of strong, independent brands fits Scania well. There is potential for us to work together with MAN to strengthen our product portfolio. It is important to point out that the advantages of any cooperation projects must benefit all Scania customers and shareholders.” 4 SCANIA VALUE • Q3/2012 www.scania.comEN03_interview_lundstedt.indd 4 2012-10-29 15:00:34
