On May 26th , Jotun’s Vice President of Americas, Idar Salvesen came to Oslo to meet BNCC’s members in a very interesting afternoon meeting at NHO.
The Jotun Group is one of the most international Norwegian companies, represented in all continents of the world and has been a leading manufacturer of paint, coatings and powder coating for more than 90 years.
Jotun opened their new paint factory in Rio de Janeiro in November 2015 in a quite different market than what was forecasted when the project was approved and started in 2010.
Mr. Salvesen engaged the audience with more than 25 members and 4 board directors of BNCC, sharing the values, the principles and the challenges that Jotun has been facing in Brazil. The audience appreciated the histories of lessons learned by Jotun’s team from building a factory in Rio de Janeiro. Appealing discussions took place with open Q&A during the presentation.
