Jens Thor Hansen, the new Managing Director for Engel Scandinavia
Engel has appointed a new Managing Director for Sweden, Denmark and Norway.
Having previously held the position of Managing Director at a plastic processing company specialising in cleanroom production, Jens Thor Hansen has gained extensive experience in his field over the last six years. Hansen, 49, has worked in management positions for medical technology and raw material companies for 25 years. “Medical technology is one of our important growth markets in Scandinavia, and we will benefit hugely from Mr Hansen's experience”, said Dr Christoph Steger, CSO Engel Holding GmbH, Austria. “In addition to this, our continued growth in Scandinavia depends to a great extent on providing efficient solutions for innovative applications.
And this is precisely Engel's strength, as well as that of the Scandinavian industry.”
Ralf Godbey, former Managing Director of Engel in Scandinavia left the group at the end of 2013.
“We thank Mr Godbey for his great commitment in the past few years”, said Steger. “Under his leadership, Engel gained a strong foothold in Northern Europe. Based on where we are already, I am convinced that we will be able to solidify our market presence in Denmark, Sweden and Norway.”
Engel is represented by subsidiaries in Solrød Strand, Denmark, and Jönköping, Sweden, as well as a sales and service office in Hobøl near Oslo, Norway.
