Steinhausen, April 27, 2022 – Schweiter Technologies is strengthening its 3A Composites product portfolio in the Display business with a natural fibre board production in Sweden by simultaneously signing and closing an agreement to become a 25% shareholder of Swedboard International AB via a direct capital increase.
Swedboard International AB (www.swedboard.se), based in Katrineholm, Sweden, is an innovative company, producing and marketing environmentally friendly boards for the graphic display business and currently generates annual sales of approx.
