Management Team

Jarmo Gustafsson Chairman/CEO

In 1993 he founded Valendor AB and rapidly introduced less-operator-dependent testing equipment for condoms, based on modern technology and intelligent design. Equipment that dramatically reduced the time and cost for testing and increased the reliability of the results.
