Additional Information

Nolato, specialised in the development and manufacture of polymer products, will relocate part of its activities from Sweden to China in order to meet its customers demand in the mobile telephone sector, which require components to be available directly in China. The change in the demand structure will lead to the take-on of 250 people in Bejing (China) and a personnel reduction of 150 people in Kristianstad (Sweden).
