Kurt Jofs appointed Chairman of Höganäs Board


Swedish metal powder producer Höganäs AB has announced that Kurt Jofs will assume the position of Chairman of the Höganäs Board on February 6, 2019. Jofs succeeds Staffan Bohman, who has held the Chairman position for the company since 2013 when Lindéngruppen and FAM bought and delisted Höganäs from the stock exchange.

“I look forward to taking over the role of Chairman and continuing Staffan Bohman’s fine work”, stated Jofs. “Höganäs is an interesting company with a long and proud history, and today it has great potential in several different markets.”

The company stated that Jofs has been a member of the Höganäs Board of Directors since 2013, bringing with him a long and broad experience from leading positions within Swedish industrial companies such as Ericsson and ABB.

“During the autumn last year, Staffan Bohman announced that he would leave the position as Chairman for Höganäs after the board meeting in February. Since April 2018, he is the Chairman of Electrolux and on top of that he holds other board assignments. Staffan Bohman’s extensive experience, competence and commitment has been of great value to both Höganäs and the board’s work,” added Lars Wedenborn from FAM and Erik Urnes from Lindéngruppen. “Now we welcome Kurt Jofs as the Chairman and look forward to our continued collaboration.”
