Mr Rolf J Persson

The Group is today manufacturing in Sweden and China, and with the growth we are targeting, China will grow into a larger manufacturer of both hoists, elevators and platforms. It is important for the Group to secure that we are shipping products to our Customers with the Alimak Hek perceived quality, and aligning our manufacturing is an important part of achieving the same level of quality for all our products and systems. Lean manufacturing and identical processes are major focus areas of the Manufacturing Units.

Supply Chain Management is another key to our continual success going forward, and we will make sure that the expected synergies within the area of SCM/Purchasing materializes when aligning the two manufacturing units under the same management.

Rolf has been with the group since October 2007.

Please join us in wishing Rolf and the team success with their future challenges.
