2 March 2005 – Stamford (CT): Esselte has named its subsidiaries in Australia, Canada, Turkey and the UK as the company’s best performing units for 2004.
Magnus Nicolin, president/CEO of Esselte, said: "Australia, Canada, Turkey and the UK were the ‘cream of the crop’ this year. This is especially gratifying as all were in precarious financial positions several years ago.
"These countries should be looked at as a model for our other subsidiaries to follow," he added. "This turnaround illustrates what focused goals and increased attention can do in a few short years."
