InterEast 6 October 2017

At Di Gasell 2017, InterEast was nominated for a 2nd year in a row

In 2017, InterEast was nominated as a Gazelle Company by Dagens Industri and is thus one of Sweden’s fastest-growing companies for the second year in a row.

– This is both fun and inspiring. Above all, it is thanks to our talented employees and customers who have confidence in us, says Oscar Törnqvist, Deputy CEO of InterEast.

Despite major internal investments in quality-assured systems, working methods and routines in 2016, InterEast meets all the criteria for a Gazelle company. This includes, among other things, increasing sales in the last three years and having organic growth.

– We are close to the market and can be both flexible and cost-conscious. We started a new strategy in 2012 that made growth possible and with last year’s quality assurances, we have all the prerequisites to continue to grow.

The strongest markets are Turkey, Romania, and Asia, but InterEast also sees great potential in new destinations.

– We work a lot with the textile and engineering industry, these are segments we want to offer our cutting-edge expertise to and make continued investments in. We must always have a presence where customers need our services.

InterEast’s goal is to continue to grow and become a Gazelle company next year as well, but the focus is first and foremost on maintaining a high delivery quality.

– Quality and service are always most important. Then the Di Gasell award confirms that the company is developing and that we are working in the right way. We are of course aiming for a triple in 2018, says Oscar Törnqvist.
