The company has appointed Martin Fransson as new Production Manager starting in September 2019. He has previously been Purchasing/Order Manager at the company and looks forward to this new role with great enthusiasm. “I’m very pleased that we have been able to do an internal recruitment and that Martin has taken the challenge” says CEO Magnus Larsson.
Martin was born and raised in Örebro. He is trained in Mechanical Engineering specialized in Industrial Economics at the University of Örebro. After the studies Martin played a season with Djurgården in the Swedish Futsal League. But when the position as Purchasing/Order Manager at Hagabergs Mekaniska became vacant, he decided to prioritize his professional career and joined the company in January 2018.
What made you accept the postition as Production Manager?
– Hagabergs is currently in an exciting phase. Earlier this year our owners acquired the company Bodins Maskin AB. This means that we, as a group, can offer our customers a wider range of products. As a result, there will be new challenges in our production plant. This also means a challenge for me personally and will give me an immediate experience of change management.
What challenges do you see?
– I do see challenges and they inspire me, but above all I see opportunities! The opportunity to streamline the production processes, but also the challenge of motivating and involving the staff in the change process.
How do you view the development of the production department?
– There’s a lot of exciting projects “in the pipe”. As a company and group, we are already one of the leading manufacturers of fork positioners in the Nordic region. However, the ambition of the company is to continue to grow, on the domestic market in the Nordic-Baltic countries, as well as across Europe. This will imply higher demands on the staff in terms of increased production capacity, more models and completely new products, Martin concludes.
