Inission can trace its roots back to the 1970s. 1973 was the year FABEC was founded as a development company in Gothenburg. EDC came about 10 years later in 1983, and started out as a subcontractor.
In the late 1980s and early 1990s, FABEC and EDC developed into two efficient, well-functioning manufacturers in the EMS industry. Things were going so well that FABEC started up a second plant in Tallinn in 1993, and EDC moved to larger premises in Munkfors the following year.
Two become one
The middle of the first decade of this century were glory days for both EDC and FABEC, with combined sales of SEK 500 million and over 350 employees. The second half of the decade was hit by the financial crisis, and in 2007 EDC had new owners. Following an investment in more efficient processes and the introduction of the Lean approach in the organisation, EDC recovered its market position in 2008 and it was time to look to the future. In 2009 FABEC was acquired by EDC and a new corporate group was formed.
Inission makes its debut
In 2010 the new group developed into a competitive, dynamic total supplier of services in electronics manufacture and management. The time was right to show the group’s new side, and in spring 2011 the companies changed name and came under the joint brand name Inission – the industry’s first total supplier.
