Axis expands R&D capacity with new offices


Axis Communications is expanding its R&D office for software development in Linköping, Sweden, by moving to a new office building. The new 2,800 square metre building is planned to be ready for occupancy in late 2021, and adds to the company’s existing presence in Linköping established in 2018.

Last year, Axis generated sales of SEK 11.8 billion, of which 18 percent is invested in R&D. The software development office in Linköping focuses on cloud solutions, new services and developing overarching comprehensive solutions and systems for managing and analysing video. To meet the growing demand for innovation, Axis continues to expand the team as planned, from today’s 40 employees to about one hundred.

The six floor office building is part of the Ebbepark district, located between Linköping city centre, the University and the Mjärdevi Science Park. The project is built with sustainability in mind, where each decision aligns with strategies for environmental, social and economic sustainability, such as recycling, smart energy solutions, stormwater management, urban cultivation and solutions for car and electric bike pool.

“We see many benefits of having an office in Linköping, which features a combination of a high-quality university and a vibrant business community. This gives us a good basis for finding the right skills and executing successful R&D projects,” says Jonsson.
