Castellum performed well, for a solid first quarter featuring a 12% growth increase in property management income compared with the previous year’s Q1. I am convinced that Castellum in its present form during 2018, has good prospects for reaching our growth objective in property management income”, says CEO Henrik Saxborn.

“Castellum continues to retain company focus on investments in our own projects, and during the period, we have won the competition to construct E.ON’s new headquarter in Malmö, representing an investment of SEK 1.1 billion. In addition, we’re launching a totally new storage service for general consumers – Beambox”, concludes Saxborn.
