What plans do you have for Blanco?
“In recent years, the number of Blanco customers has increased significantly. More customers have started using the Blanco platform, which has created a greater demand for operations and support capacity. We want to organise the operations in such a way that we can serve more customers at the same time. We also want to increase the service level so that Blanco can complete each delivery with great care and attention; to this end, we will scale up capacity.”
