Summary of the period
“Record acquisition and strong momentum for Swedencare…
Yet another intense quarter is behind us, and we start seeing what I have been predicting in recent reports – that the new Swedencare is a company that continually will be able to deliver higher growth than the general market. This is made possible due to our competent staff and above all our fearless and somewhat unconventional approach to our work. We are curious, flexible, customer- and solution oriented and we are breaking new ground in many areas where we see exciting opportunities. Once again, I am impressed by our organization ́s capacity to execute several major projects in a short period of time. Time after time we prove that our working capacity is high and that we can handle large as well as small projects without letting any business opportunities pass us by. I can ́t see that there are any organizations that can match us today when it comes to competence, flexibility, speed, and the will to make sure that all customers are satisfied with the services and products that we offer the market.”
