Comment from the President

“On a rolling annual basis, brand sales have now passed SEK 2 billion, a fantastic milestone for us. Though it has mainly been our established markets that have contributed so far, we are continuing our geographic expansion, now with an agreement in Spain and the decision to establish operations in the U.S.,” says Nils Vinberg, President of Björn Borg.
