Thomas Marstrand, Managing Partner at Erhvervsinvest said: ”We have very been pleased with the journey with CCER, and not least the collaboration with the management and competent employees
during our ownership period. CCER has developed from being a business unit of Container Centralen A/S to be an independent company today, and we are confident that CCER will continue its positive development in the new ownership structure.”
