Industrigiganten har hatt kinesisk eier i syv år: – Ikke grunnlag for bekymringene

Både fagforeninger og politikere var i tvil da Orkla i 2011 bestemte seg for å selge Elkem og overlate eierskapet til utenlandske aktører. Men kinesiske Bluestar, kontrollert av giganten ChemChina, mener bekymringene var grunnløse.

– Jeg tror det er riktig å si at det ikke var grunnlag for de bekymringene som ble knyttet til dette på den tiden, sier Elkems styreleder og konsernsjef i Bluestar, Michael Koenig, til E24.
