BERLIN – Scandinavia’s Svensk Filmindustri has signed a deal to buy Swedish production company Tre Vanner, a move that will further strengthen Svensk's position as a regional giant.
Tre Vanner' CEO Jonas Fors will take over as head of the new, merged company on Oct. 1, replacing Rasmus Ramstad, who has been CEO for Svensk since 1999 and will be leaving the company.
