2018-08-29

Bernt-Ove Andersson, Marketing Manager at Renholmen AB, was given the opportunity to meet King Carl XVI Gustaf at the fair Wood Products & Technology at the Swedish Trade Fair in Gothenburg, and talk about timber handling.

 - The King only stays for a few minutes with each exhibitor. When I presented the industry organization Sawtec, he became interested and wanted to know more about timber handling. It was great to get a moment to talk a about what we do at Renholmen, says Bernt-Ove Andersson, who is also the president of Sawtec.

 
The King has a strong commitment to a living forest industry and sustainable solutions. On his own initiative The King visited the Wood and Technology Fair to get acquainted with the industry's latest innovations, cutting-edge architecture and modern production solutions.
 
The program began with The King holding an opening speech and then visited the exhibition's exhibitors to discuss sustainable and innovative solutions.
 
- It's great that The King shows interest in the wood industry, which is the material of the future. Environmentally, it is quite beneficial to use wood, in addition, it is also very beautiful. If the forest is cared for, the resource is basically infinite, says Bernt-Ove Andersson, who also was invited, together with other industry representatives, to have lunch with The King.
