Note 5

Vagnaktiebolaget i Södertelge (Wagon Inc. in Sodertalje) f. 1891.
Surahammars bruk producer of iron bars founded a subsidiary to increase the use of iron e.g. railway carriages and waggons. Acronym VABIS was registered 1906. They remained the dominant vehicles in production for more than about 20 years but stopped before the merger in 1911. First motorized vehicle produced was an inspection trolley for railways.
Few trucks and cars were produced from 1902 and 1903. Vabis built a new factory in 1907 dedicated for cars but also used for building trucks. Scania Vabis HQ moved to Södertälje in 1913 where new buildings had been built after a devastating fire. Cars were manufactured in shrinking numbers from 1925-1929, then only trucks and buses.
