For a long time, Scania has remained remarkably consistent in its competitive positioning. Its origins date back to the early 1900s, and since 1924 it has produced trucks and busses in Södertälje, a town close to Stockholm. From 1969 until 1995 it formed part of Saab-Scania, which at that time was a major industrial group also producing passenger cars and aircraft, but Scania retained its strong identity. Business units within the group deployed very different management control practices. Hence, Saab-Scania was acting as a conglomerate, in spite of operating in industries where synergies would seem possible. Throughout this period, Scania was the most profitable part of the group. After more than a quarter-century it again became a separate company in 1995.
