Headquartered in Gothenburg, Sweden, Opus Group offers vehicle inspection programs for safety testing and emission controls, equipment sales and servicing, and support of advanced vehicles globally. Opus operates in both centralised and decentralised vehicle inspection programs, with the decentralised programs concentrated to the US. Opus also offers Equipment-as-a-Service contracts to decentralised workshops in parts of the US. While Sweden is an important division for Opus, the company is the market leader in the US and is present in Latin America, Pakistan, Spain, the UK and Australia.
A key risk for Opus is increased competition both in the Swedish market as well as internationally. Furthermore, losing procurements for new or ongoing contracts in the open US market would weaken Opus’s position as a market leader. As a part of Opus’s growth strategy, expansions to low- and middle-income countries and markets are expected. Thus, Opus faces the inherent political, financial and operational risks that come with the expansion into these areas.
