Torben Hoelgaard, salesdirector Scandinavia at SAXoTECH A/S, expresses: "By entering into this co-operation with Lighthouse AB, SAXoTECH consolidates its position as the leading supplier of editorial systems in Scandinavia and I am convinced that our co-operation will increase our strong drive on the Swedish market and consequently contribute to the continued growth of the group. This agreement shows our involvement in the Swedish market, which will now become further strengthened with local experience and know-how".

Börje Fritz, VD Lighthouse AB: "SAXoPRESS is the most far-sighted editorial system we have seen so far and it fully meets the demands to a third generation system change. The fact that the system is also cross-platform, that it offers very exiting internet tools for newspaper production, and that the development department is situated in Denmark have been decisive parameters for our entering into this agreement. We look very much forward to representing SAXoTECH in Sweden".
