Bengt Håkansson appointed new President of Coor Industrial Services

Bengt Håkansson has been appointed new President of Coor Industrial Services. He is replacing Per-Arne Forssander, who is moving on to a new role.

Coor Industrial Services delivers services and products that increase availability and reliability in production systems. This is achieved by a combination of local service centers, comprehensive functional agreements that cover all maintenance operations and specialist activities. The company has around 900 staff operating across a range of industries, with the primary focus on the Swedish market.

As the company's current President Per-Arne Forssander is now moving on to a new role, Bengt Håkansson has been appointed new President of Coor Industrial Services with immediate effect. Bengt is currently the company's Vice President with responsibility for one of its four regional markets and has been with Coor Industrial Services for eight years. Bengt Håkansson was formerly CEO of Lantmännengruppen, CEO of Nerikes Allehanda AB, CEO of Stena Line Scandinavia AB and held senior management positions within Ernströmgruppen AB 

"I'm excited to be taking over responsibility for Coor Industrial Services, which I know well. We have a sound organization, a strong offering and we're active on a promising market. I'm very enthusiastic about continuing to move our operations forward," commented Bengt Håkansson.

Bengt Håkansson has extensive experience of the industry and has held a number of senior positions in Coor Industrial Services since 2008. 

"On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Per-Arne Forssander for the significant contribution he has made to the business and to wish him every success going forward. I am delighted that Bengt Håkansson is taking up the position of President. He is highly regarded within the company; he knows the company extremely well given his eight year tenure and has the strengths and characteristics to take Coor Industrial Services forward," commented Søren Christensen, Chairman of Coor Industrial Services.
