– Unfortunately, it is true that we still have problems with deliveries of products from the Gothenburg factory, including general products, says Nils Erlimo at Swedish Match to VG.

Due to the fire, the Swedish match could not return to full bowling.

Erlimo says logistics depend on multiple parts working simultaneously, which they don't yet have.

– We take this very seriously. We regret that we are not where we should be. We have increased production and we want to increase it further with more changes in the factory, says Erlimo.

He further explains that it is especially difficult in the middle of the holidays.

– but we are doing our best and hope to sort this out in a few weeks.
