Pilkington: Chairman tours Halmstad

Pilkington chairman Sir Nigel Rudd toured the Halmstad plant during a two-day visit to the Swedish operation in October.

He inspected the new coating line and listened to presentations on both the building products and automotive operations in Scandinavia, before hosting a Q & A session on developments taking place elsewhere in the Group."Sir Nigel has not visited Sweden for some years and he wished to update himself on the operation here," said David Pinder, MD BP Nordic. "It was a useful meeting for the Swedish management team as well, since we were able to discuss matters such as the Russia venture with him."
