The Swedish Edis partner Lundgrens hosted the management meeting in Stockholm on June 17th-18th. Lundgrens is a member of the Beijer-Alma Group, one of the leading industrial and trade groups in Sweden. After the introduction to the structures and strategies of the host, there was an intense session in which all of the European partners reported on their respective markets. The companies noted positive growth across all regions in 2010 and performance that was just as good, if not better, in 2011. The current tasks facing the companies are very similar: the primary focus is on the expansion of technical and logistical services. Individual companies are intensifying their operations outside Europe in specialist fields. Procurement issues are challenging in all countries. On a positive note, the expert groups in procurement reported significant success in collaboration. However, a shortage of personnel is also an issue for all of the partners – personnel development concepts are becoming increasingly important. Edis continues to work towards gaining new member companies with the goal of continuously expanding the European network. The outlook for future business development is positive, so that the evening program – a cruise to a particularly charming restaurant – took place in a relaxed atmosphere with lots of pleasant conversation. President Erik Jolberg expressed his thanks to Hans Jacobsen for the outstanding organization and generous hospitality.
