A growing family
With a growing candy family the space in the home basement was no longer sufficient and with the continued expansion Leif had to find increasingly larger storage- and office spaces. Relocations were made and new family members were added. In 1997 the new addition “Old Chap Liquorice Allsorts”, a liquorice product from Klene in the Netherlands was welcomed and proved a big success for the company as after only two years four employees were needed and the annual turnover reached 23 million SEK.
The journey continued to Fjälkinge and more spacious premises but after several relocations Leif did what any responsible and able father would; he decided that it was time to buy something own and lasting. An industrial site down the street was purchased and construction of warehouse and offices begun. Before the end of 2002 moving dayhad arrived. After two years the annual turnover had reached 134 million SEK and in this year, 2004, Leif was appointed Entrepreneur of the Year in Kristianstads Kommun.
