Furniture maker re-hires

Furniture maker Ekornes has reported a pre-tax surplus of NOK 462 million for 2009, against NOK 497 in 2008. New orders received by the "Stressless"-maker in 2009 was 9.9 higher than in 2008.

This means that Ekornes was able to pay workers a bonus for 2009, and is now re-hireing laid off workers as well.

- What looked to become a crisis-year became golden year, says Ekornes CEO Øyvind Tørlen.
