We’re well on track here and I consider Mr. Torkel to be the ideal person to strengthen our market position sustainably as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of pharmaceutical machinery and to generate further growth.

I’ll have to keep an eye on the entire value chain at all times, and in particular on the sustainability of our products and processes – which for me is the key to business success and optimal customer satisfaction.”
