STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN — Jonas Fack has taken over as president of Bruks Siwertell AB and Port Technology Division, effective July 1, from Per Karlsson.
The company will continue to benefit from Karlsson’s vast experience and insight in his capacity as executive vice president, Bruks Siwertell Group. He also will remain on the Bruks Siwertell AB management board.
“Per’s unswerving belief in Siwertell technology and his absolute dedication to customers has furthered our company’s reach enormously, helping to transform dry bulk handling operations across the globe,” said Peter Jonsson, chief executive officer, Bruks Siwertell Group.
Karlsson joined the company in 1985, and has presided over major expansion strategies, spanning the fields of dry bulk handling, including growth into new markets throughout the Asia-Pacific region, the Americas, and the Middle East.
Siwertell ship unloaders, loaders and conveying technology are now a familiar feature at hundreds of ports around the world, handling everything from grains and foodstuffs, ores, coal, biomass, and sulfur to cement, and many other dry bulk materials. They form an indispensable link in the supply chains that the world relies on for food, energy, and manufacturing.
“It is no exaggeration to say that Per’s tenure at the head of Bruks Siwertell has substantially benefited ports and terminals, their profitability and environmental sustainability,” Jonsson said. “With a strong commitment to the principles of reducing waste, eliminating dust emissions and material spillage and degradation, the impact that he has made, and the workforce that he has cultivated, not only leaves an impressive legacy, but has truly improved our customers’ dry bulk handling capabilities across the world.”
Fack assumes his new position following the role of president, Wood Technology Division, Bruks Siwertell Group, which he has held for the last few years. Fack brings extensive knowledge of dry bulk handling and port technology, having served the organization for 15 years in a variety of roles.
