From zero to a hundred
How the ForestX journey began
Founders Carl Barck and Christer Lindqvist have both held leading IT roles with the Swedish forest industry as main customer base. Their ambition was to create more efficient processes based on user-friendly solutions. Their business idea was to assist the forestry sector to digitise many of its processes and to support change management, thus creating business value.
On establishing ForestX, Christer and Carl where quick to recruit a number of experienced, down-to-earth colleagues. They also wasted no time in entering into strong collaborations with carefully selected partners with specialist knowledge of IT systems and solutions, AI and machine learning.
