Recently we updated a presentation about Göthes Group. The reasons for this are many, but merely important is to answer one question in particular; Who is Göthes?

Gothes logotypes

The consolidation phase takes it start in the beginning of year 2000. Göthes has got more specialized into different business areas such as fittings, security and technique. A natural effect is that each business area also takes more responsibility and set up its own aims. The change in itself showed to be an efficient way to filter out and specialize whereas knowledge easily could be shared within the group.  In the beginning of 2014 we started to change in the organization where each business area becomes its own LTD. Today Göthes AB is the mother of Göthes Industribeslag (fittings) Ltd., Göthes Säkerhet (security) Ltd., and Göthes Teknik (technique) Ltd.
