- From the Board’s perspective, we are convinced that Niklas, with his solid experience from, among others, Addtech, is the right person to take on and further develop the successful business that exists in the Addtech Group today, says Chairman of the Board, Anders Börjesson.

- Johan has had a significant impact on the Group’s positive development since joining Addtech in 2007, which is why we, the Board, are very pleased now that we can accommodate Johan’s wishes. The hope of the Board and Johan is that he will continue to be a member of the Board of Directors in Addtech after the Annual General Meeting, and that he in this role will be able to ensure continuity in the CEO succession and contribute to a continued positive development, continues Anders Börjesson.
