FVB continues to grow
“We're getting high demand from our customers, and this gives us good opportunities to grow,” says Per Skoglund, CEO of FVB.
Ever since the company was formed, FVB has been strong within district heating and was the first to introduce district cooling to Sweden. FVB also works with energy issues related to industry, property, electricity and automation.
“We currently have 150 employees in offices at ten locations in Sweden. We’re growing throughout the country and need to recruit staff for most of our offices in all areas of activity. We are also looking for Swedish staff to work at our offices in Reading (near London).
“By joining us, you can develop as a consultant, working on challenging specialist projects,” says Skoglund when the company announced a recruitment drive.
“It's relatively easy to find newly qualified engineers, but what we need right now is project managers, project engineers and designers with a few years’ experience.”
FVB is investing extensively in water and sewage, and we need to recruit experienced designers within utility networks.
“Water and sewage is an area that will require considerable investment going forward and is an area we expect to grow in. Parallel to that is the major switch to more electrification, which means that in market terms, things look pretty good for us,” concludes Skoglund.
But it’s not just the strong markets that are the reason for the company’s growth; it is also the fact that FVB’s ambition is to continue to grow organically whilst retaining its profitability. New recruits will join a prosperous company that is also employee-owned, which means that all permanent employees have a chance to own shares in the company.
