I try visiting the offices of Dahl International, a wholesaler
of heating, sanitation, pipe products and water & sewer suppliers
in the Nordic countries but end up at the offices of Ratos. Who's
Ratos? It's an investment company I tried visiting four years
ago and was continually given the runaround. Ratos controls 49%
of Dahl and evidently wants to keep a close eye on its investment.
With over a billion dollars in revenues, Dahl is nothing to sneeze
at. But, just like four years ago I'm again given the runaround.
Nobody seems to know anything about the introductory letter sent
a month earlier to Dahl's CEO Per-Olof Soderberg. What's frustrating
is that the building is a turn-of-the-century beaut and occupies
a prime corner spot-directly across from the Parliament building.
