INVISIO Year-end Bulletin 2020: Acquisition strengthens INVISIO’s growth potential
“INVISIO is closing 2020 with an intensive fourth quarter, where the acquisition of Racal Acoustics represents an important milestone. It not only means an increase in INVISIO’s revenue base, but also that the company can now offer two of the market’s strongest brands. Developments in the quarter and in 2020 have meant that we have both strengthened the company and our market position, despite the exceptional conditions prevailing. All in all, INVISIO is well prepared for meeting 2021, but the challenges should not be underestimated. We are still in the midst of a pandemic, which is most likely to set its stamp at least on the first half of 2021,” says Lars Højgård Hansen, CEO of INVISIO.
