Saab engineers establish chassis development company DynaTech

Since Saab filed for bankruptcy a number of engineering consultancy companies have been established by former Saab engineers. Last in line is DynaTech, a company which will focus on chassis development among large and small companies, but also training and event driving.

What makes this company extra interesting is the fact that former Saab Performance Team drivers Kenneth Bäcklund and Kjell Olofsson are part of the company. And we all know that those guys know how to handle a car!

But why would this company have any input on chassis development to offer to other companies in the car industry?

"It is something we have much experience of from Saab. Compared to many other brands where they put down most energy into the car's active systems, at Saab we put down an equal amount of energy on those systems as we did on the testing and development which we were responsible for," says Stefan Rundqvist.

Together with Per Skoglund and aforementioned Bäcklund and Olofsson, Stefan Rundqvist have established DynaTech at Trollhättan's Innovatum Teknikpark.

In addition to offering expertise on chassis development, the company will also offer services to companies which want to test drive their cars on different kinds of roads and test tracks. DynaTech can offer an exceptional expertise on winter roads. Which is no surprise since Saab used to first set up its cars to drive perfectly on winter roads before fine tuning the chassis to be perfect also on tarmac.
