It is now official that the automotive giant Geely joins and becomes the newest member of the Trade and Industry Group at Gothenburg & Co.
– Geely wants to get involved in the Trade and Industry Group because it is a good way for us to become more involved in the local business community in Gothenburg. The Trade and Industry Group has a broad program that allows us to sync with the other companies already in the group and benefit jointly from being a gathering force in sponsorship and CSR work in the region, says Stefan Lundin, head of communications for Geely in Sweden.
Geely Sweden Holdings is a subsidiary of the Chinese Geely Group and is in Sweden a holding company for, among others, Volvo Cars, Polestar, Lynk & Co and Geely’s new innovation center Uni3 at Lindholmen and others. With more than 10 years of presence in Gothenburg, Geely now wants to take greater responsibility as a group and get more involved in the city’s development.
– We are very pleased that Geely has chosen to get involved in the Trade and Industry Group and we warmly welcome them, says Lennart Johansson, Head of the Trade and Industry Group at Gothenburg & Co. Geely is the perfect puzzle piece that powerfully complements our platform. Together with 21 other large companies in different areas, the Trade and Industry Group works to strengthen and develop Gothenburg’s competitiveness and attractiveness.
