Within just a bit more than a week we will reach the conclusion of 2018, and we would like to take the opportunity to wish you a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year 2019!
This year has been an exciting year for us, with 100 year’s celebration and all time high when it comes to providing custom made robust radio remote control systems. I’m proud to say that we are about to close the strongest year since 2003, and we will reach 100 MSEK in turnover.
During this year we have invested in adding more resources for product development, quality, sales and production, and I’m pleased to inform that we already seen results. We have moved forward in RFID, and we are currently working on a small receiver for telfer cranes. Apart from that we have also launched a tool for configuration of Sesam, and several customizations. For next year we will continue this path and keep focus on product development and premium quality in both products and services.
From beginning of 2019 we will have Peter Enmalm appointed as Product Manager, and Magnus Ekman has been hired as RnD Manager. We are in the process of hiring a new manager for Service and Aftersales, and that department is also moved to reporting directly to CEO. This is with the ambition to level up our aftermarket sales and keep better lead times for repairs. As I will take on the role as CEO January 1st, the position of sales manager will also be replaced during the first half of 2019.
With this we hope to continuously provide yours and our customers with high quality robust products. Thank you for excitement and joy during 2018.
All of us at Åkerströms wish you a
Merry Christmas & a Prosperous 2019
We are looking forward to continue our cooperation with you!
Anna Stiwne, VP of Sales
