The Axipto philosophy is that if we have dedicated people in our organization and if we can have this close collaboration with the customer, both parties can benefit from a huge gain in speed.
We also work with open books which gives us and the customer strong reliability and trust in each other. The closeness to Epiroc gives them almost an extension to their own factory. Axipto and Epiroc have a long history together, not only thanks to the geographical advantages.
Speed and dedication
The Axipto philosophy is that if we have dedicated people in our organisation and if we can have this close collaboration with the customer, both parties can benefit from a huge gain in speed. We also work with open books which gives us and the customer strong reliability and trust in each other. The closeness to Epiroc gives them almost an extension to their own factory. Axipto and Epiroc have a long history together, not only thanks to the geographical advantages.
During many years we have worked together both on smaller and larger projects where Axipto has been a competent partner able to support with capacity in the short to medium term. And through large scale projects with different Epiroc units where Axipto has been a “one stop shop” partner for outsourcing of large volumes of machining.
Since the end of the 1980s the intimate coope- ration with Epiroc in Kalmar has been a success story to help the customer cope with ever chan- ging market demands. Since the beginning of the 2000s Axipto has taken full responsibility for most machined parts used in Epiroc’s underground rock excavation machines produced at the Epiroc plant in Örebro.
”In this project we had a very close collaboration with Axipto and thanks to that it has been possible to get a short project time and a very quick start-up time for all the products.”

By cultivating our expertise we can continuously develop our processes to improve quality and keep an increasingly high level of productivity. We strive to be involved in an early stage of product development, by which we can give input to the design process to help optimize parts for production. Already at the prototype stage we use our experience to provide input that reduces costs and increases quality.
Scania has been a customer of ours since the early 1980s, through the years we have produced and delivered a vast mix of parts – mainly for chassis and engine.
Thanks to Scania’s openness and dedication to cooperate closely with their suppliers we have since the early 2000s had an intimate cooperation around lean and production system development. By this close cooperation we have improved our productivity and stabilized our processes helping us be able to comply with Scania’s demands for continuous price reductions.
For the future we focus on strengthening ourselves even further in quality assurance and improving our already strong supplier base through a well-developed and ever-increasing collaboration within Inducore Components where we utilize the combined strength of the whole group.
We keep choosing Axipto thanks to their entrepreneurial spirit and ability to make necessary actions and/or investments for increasing quality and productivity. Axipto also takes a large responsibility for the supply chain by actively mana- ging the tier 2 partners enabling improved delivery performance and quality.” “An important base for our co- operation is an open and clear communication.” – he concludes.
