This year SPECTA is celebrating its anniversary – 25 years in the packaging business. What has happened over all that time? During those 25 years, our company has launched a modern technological production business from scratch in Russia, manufacturing steel and polyester packaging strap, and marking materials – to become one of the leaders in industrial packaging in Russia, the CIS countries, Europe, and the Middle East. For the company’s many partners in over 50 world countries, SPECTA represents the symbol of quality and reliability. All this became possible due to the company’s highly coordinated operations – as well as the energy and enthusiasm of Erik Helin, who arrived in Russia and got inspired by the idea of making his own contribution to the safe transportation of goods. In this interview, SPECTA’s CEO Erik Helin recalls how it all started, and offers an insight into things which are often left out of official histories. Take a look at this video presentation to find out more about the huge world of SPECTA – the realisation of a daring dream.
