Quote from the Client
“IK was the right partner for us at the right time. Thanks to the cooperation with IK, ELFA has expanded significantly at the same time as improving the underlying performance of the business. We are confident of successfully continuing our growth strategy together with Daetwyler, who are already a strong player in the distribution of electronic components.”
