County Governor Håkan Sörman testing the strength of Trioplast
On June 21th, the County Governor of Jönköping County, Mr Håkan Sörman, together with the upper management of Gislaved Municipality, visited Trioplast in Smålandsstenar.
The purpose of the visit was to gain insight into Trioplast growth plans as well as to discuss important issues to facilitate the development of the region's companies. As one of the municipality's largest employers with a global customer base Trioplast has a responsibility to support and engage in work to improve conditions for a strong business climate in the region. Several topics were addressed, as goods traffic via railroad to and from Smålandsstenar, and how we together can develop the area to be attractive for skilled labour in key functions.
