"January results were typical for low season, but considering our development plans and strategies, the Advisory Board expects that, that the supplementary management will show the corresponding results in the coming months” said Enn Laansoo, Jr. Chairman of the Advisory Board of ELMO Rent.
The number of registered new customers also increased more than 3 times (January 2021, 167 compared to January 2022, 551).
