I am very proud of what we together have achieved during the past five years. With a strong, passionate, and efficient organization, our clear market and digital leadership, the revolutionary new Releye® container platform just launched and a very strong pipeline of more great products and digital services, Envirotainer is stronger than ever. I feel it is a very good time to pass the baton to Peter.” said Michael Berg.

“We welcome Peter and are very pleased to have attracted such a strong leader to move back to Sweden and to develop and grow the business going forward. We thank Michael for his significant contribution and good collaboration. Envirotainer today is a much stronger and more agile company than in 2016 – ideally positioned for continued success.” said Pontus Pettersson, Partner Cinven.

“It is with great joy that I have accepted the offer to lead Envirotainer into the future. I am extremely impressed by what the people at Envirotainer have created, and we will continue to build on the position achieved by satisfying customers and other stakeholders in order to strengthen the supply chain for pharma products even more in our ambition to make people healthier around the world,” said Peter Gisel-Ekdahl

Recently, China Southern Airlines has approved the Envirotainer Releye RLP for usage on their fleet of aircraft. With this approval, China Southern can now transport the Releye RLP on their extensive network, increasing the capacity to meet the ever-growing need for temperature-controlled, high-quality, and connected ULD solutions.
