Ett nytt Tretorn
   
Föreläsare: Joakim Appelqvist (VD) och Vasko Markovski (Ekonomichef)

Tretorn grundades 1891 av Johan Dunker i Helsingborg och tillverkade då bl a galoscher. På 1960-talet utvecklades företaget och började tillverka tennisskor, tennisbollar och kläder.  Idag har bolaget tagit vidare en 125-årig hantverkstradition och förenat den med ny teknologi. Tillsammans med Naturkompaniet har en regnklädeskollektion tagits fram gjord på 95 procent återvunnet material. År 2015 sålde tyska Puma varumärkesrättigheterna för Tretorn till amerikanska Authentic Brands Group. Driften av bolaget sköts fortsatt av svenska Tretorn med huvudkontor i Helsingborg.
