Press release

The initiative for an open and independent global e-marketplace was taken today by Skanska and three other leading international construction companies. The e-marketplace, with its working name AECventure, will help to transform the entire construction process and make it more efficient. The objective is to increase customer benefits by reducing costs, increasing quality and shortening lead times. The new marketplace will be open and neutral, and will be operated on a commercial basis within an independent company.
“We are creating a fully operational global marketplace, focusing on customer value,” says Claes Björk, CEO of Skanska AB. “Using new technology, we can reduce costs in all areas, particularly for our end-customers. This initiative will increase our service offering and the conditions for international purchasing in a market that has been far too local to date.”
