We can see great opportunities to strengthen our competitiveness and profitability in this area. I would like to thank Anders and Peter for their tremendous contribution to the development of Hexatronic. Anders and his team have developed TD Fiberoptik (now Hexatronic Fiberoptic) over many years,
and it now has a market-leading position in Sweden. Peter has, above all, established us on the German market, where we have now won our first order as recently announced,” said Henrik Larsson, CEO of Hexatronic Group AB.
