Coor strengthens Industrial Services

Alongside its four business areas organized by national markets, Coor is starting up a group-wide organizational unit for Industrial Services. Per-Arne Forssander has been appointed President of this operation, which will focus on developing and growing the business. The appointment means that Per-Arne Forssander will be joining Coor’s Executive Management Team.

Coor Service Management has been focusing actively on Industrial Services since 2008. Business area sales are currently SEK 1.5 bn, or 20 % of total sales. To facilitate expansion of the business area’s offering to Nordic manufacturing, Coor has created a dedicated business area for these markets. Per-Arne Forssander has been hired as President of Industrial Services. Per-Arne has worked in various roles in the ABB group for over 30 years, were he was part of the Swedish executive management. He has solid experience of production and project management, in segments including automation, motors, generators, low-voltage products and power products.

“Although Coor’s competence and offering is currently very strong on the FM side, to become a complete services provider for Nordic manufacturing industry, we need to sharpen our focus on industrial services. This initiative is providing us with a unique position and strength—no other Nordic player has our depth and breadth of competence. I’m delighted to be recruiting Per-Arne Forssander, whose solid experience makes him the right person to continue to grow and develop Coor Industrial Services,” commented Mikael Stöhr, CEO and President of Coor Service Management.

Per-Arne Forssander will be taking up his position on 1 January 2014.

“I’m really looking forward to my new challenges. Coor has established strong industrial services operations in a short period of time, and I want to bring in my background in manufacturing and customer care to help develop this business,” commented Per-Arne Forssander, incoming President of Industrial Services, Coor Service Management.
