Axplore by Axel Johnson

Axel Johnson is a leading Swedish family-owned group, with a major footprint in food, and with businesses spanning sectors as diverse as industrial, beauty, health and wellness, IT solutions and solar energy. Today we are in the middle of the fastest change in our 150-year long history. This transformation is centered around our 10/50 goal - In ten years, 50 percent of what we do will be things we don't do today. The group's success lies in our wide reach, long-term perspective, our impatience, and clear focus on being a positive force for societal change.

The Axel Johnson group currently comprise Axel Johnson International, Axfood, AxSol, Dustin, KICKS Group, Martin & Servera and Novax.

Axplore, Axel Johnson’s group common trainee program, runs for 12 months and offers a unique opportunity to explore several of the companies within our group.
