Engel Pools its Expertise in Northern Europe
Engel Austria GmbH, Schwertberg, is bringing its sales and service subsidiaries in Scandinavia and Finland even closer together under joint management, thus continuing to increase its strength in the region. Jens-Thor Hansen is assuming the overall responsibility for Northern Europe.
"With this new structure, we can provide our pooled expertise to the relevant markets across all industries in Northern Europe and improve the utilization of our resources across borders", says Dr. Christoph Steger, CSO of the Engel Group. Hansen joined the company in 2014 and has since then been managing the sales and service subsidiaries in Solrød Strand, Denmark, and Jönköping, Sweden, as well as the sales office in Hobøl near Oslo in Norway. Engel Finland Oy in Helsinki is now becoming a new part of his responsibilities. Hansen is a plastics technology engineer. Prior to joining Engel, he held top positions in medical technology companies and the raw materials business.
Pertti Salonen, the previous Managing Director of Engel in Finland, is taking on a new challenge outside of the Engel Group.
