“Even though we are a big and successful company, we have the agility and speed as a smaller company when driving our product development. I think this is due to the fact that we all work very closely together, we help each other and are free to make decisions. As a project buyer you will have an integrated and central role in the development projects, moving ideas into reality. Ideas that really make a difference for people with mobility challenges.”
