Abstract [en]

Having been a contract manufacturing company, TOMVA AB gradually reduced its mechanical production and concentrated upon its core activities, the development of machines and machine components. In addi- tion, some employees have started as pure consultants within the mechani- cal industry.The come about of this development was in large due to the personal crisis the company’s founder and CEO suffered from during the years 2001- 2003 when it became clear that he was involved in too many sides of the business. He believes that his problems, largely one of not being able to limit himself, are typical for many entrepreneurs who start, build, adminis- trate and try to develop and extend their business. In the long run the risk is that enormous pressure and responsibility are accumulated and solely rest upon the entrepreneur’s shoulders. Due to this situation he was forced to re- think and re-organize the entire company.For TOMVA today competences have been strengthened within cer- tain key areas, and a great part of the decision-making process is left to the co-workers. The company now leaves much of its production to other sub- contractors and concentrates upon design, development, service and consult- ing.
