Twilfit will focus on lingerie, beachwear and other intimate fashion knitwear. AB Lindex's intends to move Twilfit's purchasing function to joint purchasing organisation in Göteborg during the spring and summer.

"Our intention is to integrate the purchase of both lingerie and ladies' wear. Operations within Twilfit will focus on lingerie, beachwear and other intimate fashion knitwear in which we have a leading market position", says Jörgen Johansson, President and CEO of AB Lindex. On 1 September 2004, AB Lindex also intends to merge AB Twilfit fully with AB Lindex through a transfer of assets and liabilities. Thereafter, the Twilfit organisation will be responsible for running Twilfit's stores and the Twilfit brand. A joint legal unit creates opportunities for a more rapid implementation of the Lindex Group's new product supply system in the Twilfit chain. Negotiations have started with the trades union parties involved.
