Caroline Larsson has been named as recipient of Höganäs AB’s Ulf Engström Award, given annually to an individual working at the company who is said to have laid ground for a commercially successful development in the Powder Metallurgy industry. Larsson works in product management for the company and received the award for her successful development and qualification of Astaloy® PMo, Distaloy® DC, Distaloy® DH, Distaloy® HP, Distaloy® AQ, Distaloy®ACu and the high precision toolbox for Fe+Cu+C mixes.

She was also said to have contributed to development, qualification and launch of other PM powders, such as Starmix® 500i, Intralube® S and Intralube® HD. Each of these products has reportedly played a vital role in Höganäs’s growth on the PM market and in increasing the volume of mixes sold.

The award jury cited Larsson’s “outstanding technical market support work and her successful development and qualification of PM powders in their motivation.” Larsson has been with the company for thirty years, beginning in product development, followed by roles in sales and technical marketing. “I feel surprised, moved and honoured to win the prize in Ulf Engström’s name, our true powder pioneer. And that makes me feel proud,” she stated during the prize ceremony.

“During her many years at Höganäs, Caroline has given outstanding technical market support to Japan, the USA during the time of Höganäs’s start-up in North America, and Europe,” the jury wrote. “With her deep knowledge and customer focus, she has contributed to many customers’ success.”
