14.02.2019, Åhus, Sweden
Åhus was long known as a “source of three Swedish sins” – snuff, schnapps and a surfeit of eels. The centuries-old tradition of eel fishing is still very much alive along the coast here and in the old eel huts. For many years the area was also famous for its tobacco fields and the manufacture of the “Åhus Havana” cigar. In the late 1800s there was hardly a single family in Åhus that didn’t have its own miniature tobacco plantation. The last tobacco in Åhus and Yngsjö was harvested in the autumn of 1964. Schnapps, on the other hand, is still produced in Åhus! Although the Absolut Company is now owned by French interests, the Absolut vodka for which it is famous continues to be produced in Åhus.
Nevertheless Åhus is very well-known to the professional athletes and just followers of healthy lifestyle as well – since it hosts the headquarters of brand #1 in the world of swimming and water polo - Malmsten. Swedish Malmsten creates World Class Swimming Pools; safe and sustainable pool solutions for learning, well-being and competition.
The only thing that remains – Just Add Water!
Malmsten is the official FINA and LEN Supplier of Racing Lane Lines for Swimming and Open Water Swimming, Water Polo Field of Play Markings, Water Polo Goals & Nets, Water Polo Referee Catwalks and Water Polo Ball Release Systems.
Moreover after many years of our very efficient co-work, two generations of Malmsten family (Tommy, Margareta, Marcus and Christian) together with Eva-Marie and other super competent staff members are already more than just business-partners for us. Despite the stereotypes of Scandinavians being chilly and formal, we always feel at home at Åhus, like coming to good old friends’ house. AVK Group has been exclusive distributor of Malmsten in CIS countries for many years, with a number of top-rank projects that hosted the highest level water sports competitions and we are definitely not going to stop!
Tack för att du tillbringar tid med oss, våra Malmsten vänner och partners.
