DIAB has opened a new office at a central address in Helsingborg, Sweden on 1 February 2016; the new office is a strategically important step in order to secure strong future recruitment.
DIAB explains that Helsingborg is perfectly located with proximity to Copenhagen and Malmo, which increases its ability to attract well-educated staff with international experience. At the same time, it takes less than 50 minutes to drive to Laholm, Sweden, where the headquarters, manufacturing and R&D are. DIAB is again in an expansive phase, with precise growth targets from the owner Ratos. A new external office for part of the business increases flexibility and efficiency, in particular as the number of employees is expected to increase. Approximately 20 people with global market responsibility and European sales responsibility work at the Helsingborg office.
The new office is a deliberate move for recruitment, as Helsingborg is a dynamic city that holds great attraction. The office is also just a stone's throw away from the central station and port, which simplifies commuting from larger cities in Öresund region – and thus from the rest of the world, says CEO Lennart Hagelqvist.
