Per Thorsell, CEO of ProfilGruppen, comments:
”The profit development creates a good feeling and gives positive feedback to all our employees that our continuous work with improvements through all parts of the business gives effect.
The fact that we now also have made a direction decision to invest in new technology and increased capacity in our facility in Åseda creates even more power to the organisation. It also gives a clear signal to our customers that we want to continue to grow together and develop us in order to satisfy their needs even better. ”
