  MAX~IV Laboratory, the first 4th generation synchrotron located in the south of Sweden, entered operation in 2017 with the first three experimental stations. In the past two years the project organisation has been focused on phase II of the MAX IV Laboratory development, aiming to raise the number of beamlines in operation to 16. The KITS group, responsible for the control and computing systems of the entire laboratory, was a major actor in the realisation of this phase as well as in the continuous up-keep of the user operation. The challenge consisted principally of establishing a clear project management plan for the support groups, including KITS, to handle this high load in an efficient and focused way, meanwhile gaining the experience of operating a 4th generation light source. The momentum gained was impacted by the last extensive shutdown due to the pandemic and shifted toward the remote user experiment, taking advantage of web technologies. This article focuses on how KITS has handled this growing phase in term of technology and organisation, to finally describe the new perspective for the MAX IV Laboratory, which will face a bright future.
