CEO’s year in review

At Lindström, responsibility begins in small, everyday tasks. It is included in our values and is an integral part of all our operations. For us, responsibility means taking care of the environment, purchasing, customers, personnel and all our other stakeholders.

I am proud to say that year 2015 was also marked by continued steps towards growth and internationalisation. We established a subsidiary in South Korea and opened new service centres in Kazakhstan, India and China. It has also been a great honour to serve an increasing number of customers.

As a responsible company, we want to ensure a sustainable foundation for the growth of our operations also in the future. It is important to look ahead and ensure that we can produce responsible services designed to customer needs even for years to come.

One of the greatest efforts of the last year was our joint strategy work. All of the personnel were involved in the work. During the process, we looked together to year 2020. The goal was to paint a picture of how our operating environment will change, which opportunities it will offer us, and what we could do to further improve our service for our customers. We were able to gather perspectives and ideas for our new strategy from hundreds of employees across the organization in 23 countries.
