1974: Group assembly is introduced

Majne Lindh was the first female foreman at the chassis assembly in Södertälje. To address high personnel turnover, particularly in the assembly workshop in Södertälje, Scania makes major efforts to improve the physical working environment to make shop-floor work more attractive. As an example, "group-assembly" is introduced, in which a small group of workers is assigned the responsibility of building complete engines from start to finish. Results are promising, and with the improvements, women begin making inroads to what was once a male-dominated workplace.
