We strive to offer high availability and world-class deliveries. In short, we are committed to make a positive impact that makes a difference for our customers and other stakeholders - every day.
To further strengthen the executional capabilities we now create the function "Energy and Climate Solutions", to manage the expansion of Lindab's overall product and solution development with sales and marketing as well as driving the development of the "digital value chain".
With great pleasure, Lindab announces the recruitment of Olof Christensson, who has been appointed to lead the newly established function of Lindab's Energy and Climate Solutions. In this capacity Olof will be part of Lindab's Executive Management Team with the official title of Executive vice President Energy and Climate Solutions. Olof comes most recently from the position as President Engineering Services at Semcon in Gothenburg.
Simultaneously, additional focus will be addressed to the long term development of Lindab's products and solutions with a responsibility to strengthen Lindab's R&D capacities to be fit for the future.
This function will be headed by Bengt Andersson, currently in the position of Lindab's Group Product and Marketing Director. Bengt will in his new capacity remain on Lindab's Executive Management Team with the official title of Executive vice President and Chief Technical Officer.
"We are convinced that Lindab is on the right track to optimise its current capabilities and at the same time is perfectly positioned to meet a very exciting future", says Anders Berg, President and CEO of Lindab Group.
This new organisational change will not affect the structure of Lindab's financial reporting.
The organisation will be operational as soon as possible and fully effective in early autumn this year.
