He believes in our decentralized business model, understands the accompanying needs and is willing to work globally with our entire international group with the goal of developing synergy between our units,” acknowledged Pukk. According to him, Incap now aims for even better opportunities for cooperation, negotiations and solving challenges related to the components market.
