The Polish company Famor was chosen as one of suppliers of equipment for new submarines built for the Swedish Navy. An agreement on this matter between the Swedish industrial group Saab and the company from Polish Bydgoszcz was signed in Paris during the ongoing international armaments fair Euronaval 2018.
