CEO’s comment

”We are one of the strongest electronics manufacturers in the Nordics. We continue to progress and remain an agile and responsive business partner for our customers. I’m proud of what we’ve achieved, and it’s pleasing to present an improved operating profit of some SEK 10 million for the first half-year.

Almost all our markets experienced sales growth in the second quarter. We’re also now seeing concrete business opportunities as a result of our extended service offering to the medical sector in Sweden. Our expressed ambition is to increase market share further and strengthen our profitable growth. As part of our growth strategy, we have decided to strengthen the organisation with a Sales Director in our group management team. This position has been assigned to Fredrik Schultz. Fredrik is joining us from sector peer Enics, and will start in mid-August”, says Peter Laveson, CEO and President.
