On 18 December, SweMaint's wheel workshop in Gothenburg passed the milestone of 10,000 reprocessed wheels in 2023! The recipe behind the success and what makes the workshop Scandinavia's largest for freight wagon wheels is an increased demand for freight wagon transport, a fantastic collaboration with customers, suppliers and partners combined with joint dedication. A warm thank you to everyone who contributed!
As the United Nations Children's Fund, UNICEF works in 190 countries with one goal: to make children's rights a reality for all children. The organisation receives no financial support from the UN and is funded exclusively by voluntary contributions from individuals, companies and governments. All money raised is distributed among the countries and areas that need it most. For the first time in a long time, we see a decline in the development of children in many countries and more children than ever before need help to survive.
SweMaint is part of society at large and with the corporate role comes a responsibility to be a positive force in the world around us. We therefore engage in a number of different initiatives aimed at supporting and contributing to a more sustainable and inclusive society. The latest in the series of such initiatives, and particularly important since SweMaint is based in Gothenburg, is the collaboration with Göteborgs Stadsmission 2023/2024.
