Note10

The new company “Svenska Aeroplan AB” (Swedish Airplane Inc.) was created in April 1939 by combining ASJA and Svenska Aeroplan Aktiebolaget in Trollhättan. Investor AB a Wallenberg controlled company helped financed the deal and is since then together with Wallenberg Foundations dominating owners.
Wenner-Gren major owner of the Svenska Aeroplan Aktiebolaget
was now no longer part of the Board of Directors as his share of ownership had been reduced.. NOHAB Flygmotorfabriker remained with Bofors Nohab AB.
HQ functions incl. CEO staff and airplane engineering were placed in Linköping.
Military airplanes have been developed, produced and tested in Linköping since 1939. Airplanes were built until 1948 in Trollhättan. Major components e.g. wings for jet planes were built until 1959 in Trollhättan.
In 1965 the name of the company changed to Saab AB.
