Ericsson Supplier Innovation Award

In February 2024 Nefab received the Ericsson Supplier Innovation Award at the Ericsson HQ in Kista, Sweden. Ericsson grants this award to suppliers that demonstrate innovations or innovative ways of working in means of design, digitalization, efficiency, and quality.

Since the 1960's, Nefab and Ericsson have worked together to innovate better packaging solutions to transport sensitive, high-tech telecom products around the world). Today, Ericsson’s target is to reduce plastics in their product packaging by 50% by 2025. Nefab and Ericsson have subsequently developed a packaging solution made up of mainly fiber-based materials that are recyclable but can still provide necessary structural integrity during the shipping process.

"The innovation continuously provided by this supplier in the packaging area helps Ericsson and our customers achieve tangible results in our joint journey to a more sustainable future. With our ambition to reduce carbon emissions in our supply chain the innovations from this award winner have enabled us to halve the plastics in our product packaging material and to significantly increase the automation level in the packaging process in our factories” - says Håkan Elveljung, Head of Networks Products HW Sourcing, Ericsson.

"Nefab and Ericsson have developed a successful and long-lasting partnership over the years. At Nefab, we work closely with our customers, innovating together to create smart and sustainable solutions that save resources in supply chains. This award is a testament to our customer focus and our purpose as a company" - says Per Öhagen, President & CEO, Nefab Group.
