“I am very impressed by how the Roxtec organization has been able to turn our investments in the market into sales growth. They have earned the trust from the board and the owners to keep expanding the company into the future.”
“The board feels confident that the company under Magnus Holmberg’s leadership will continue to develop and grow as we continue to realize the large market opportunities,” says Hans Stråberg.
