Our cable designers are key players in the important and sometimes demanding design process. Every enquiry is unique and the complexity range varies between simple wires to multicore, hybrid cables for demanding applications. The challenge is to find the best possible solution for the customer. Elisabeth Österlund is Senior Design Engineer and has worked at Habia for many years now and holds a strategic function today. 

“Our main task is to understand our customer´s needs and deliver a tailor-made solution. Our collective knowledge and experience within the company is substantial since Habia has been creating cable solutions for many years, to customers in many different areas all over the world. It is my job to make the most of all our competence”, says Elisabeth Österlund.

Prompt feedback every time

The designers work in close cooperation with sales, R&D and production. Quick answers and feedback are a natural part of the everyday work life. The designers often liaise directly with the customer and if it is required, make a site visit to decide the correct design. 

“A cable solution is often modified several times before it is established, so if we can shorten the lead time by a site visit, then we are more than happy to do so. We then get an instant understanding of the surrounding elements where the application will work”, says Roger Lindström, Designer for the Nordic region.

Specialised all rounders

Demands from the customers have increased over the years. Extensive testing and documentation are common elements in the process, especially in the Nuclear segment where the safety requirements are enormous. All cable designers are highly skilled all rounders with wide cable knowledge, but in addition they all have deeper specialist expertise in their segments.

“I am privileged to have a job with a great variation every day. I solve problems and find solutions with our comprehensive toolbox of materials, know-how and manufacturing capacity. It is also fantastic to be a part of the Habia team. All the dedicated people create great things together when we aim for the same goal”, says Elisabeth Österlund.
