Götaverken

In 1906 the shipbuilding and engineering activities of the Keillerska family in Hisingen, Gothenburg, Sweden, were taken over by a new company, "Göteborgs Nya Verkstadsaktiebolag" (Gothenburg New Engineering Company Limited) with the telegraphic address "Götaverken", which became the company name in 1916: "AB Götaverken". In 1934, the "Götaverken Flygavdelning" (Götaverken Aircraft Department) was set up, based on the shipyard's woodwork shop. Bo Lundberg became both the design engineer and test pilot. 1935 Götaverken got a license contract for three Hawker Hart trainers for the Swedish AF. In 1938 the company started license production of 14 examples of the Rearwin 9000-L Sportster, and designated them GV-38. 12 Fiat C.R.42 Falco fighters were constructed, intended for Finland, but went into service with the Swedish Air Force. During the Winter War of 1940 the company assembled 16 Fiat G.50 fighters and 9 Westland Lysander liaison aircraft that were delivered to Finland.
