Events after the end of the period

CEO Petter Bäckgren comments on the second quarter of 2020 

Sales during the period amounted to approximately SEK 4.8 million, which corresponds to an increase of 37% compared with the same period a year ago. So far this year, the increase is 50% compared to the same period in 2019. Sales were largely driven by deliveries to our French partner Loxam, that during the first quarter ordered 82 units and consumables. Loxam's investment in Ironhand® has been a great success. They are receiving more and more requests to rent out gloves, both from new and existing customers, for example from Eiffage, which is one of their largest customers.
