CEO comment
"There has been a high level of activity in INVISIO in the first half of the year with continued growth initiatives to extend the product portfolio, increase the number of employees in research and development and increase market presence. Since last year we have opened two new offices and increased the number of employees by almost 50 per cent. The cost increases express our conviction that INVISIO can grow its sales considerably through these initiatives in the coming years", says Lars Højgård Hansen, CEO of INVISIO.
