Sweden’s Sandvik AB has announced that Lars Engström has been appointed President of Sandvik Mining and is to be included as a member of Sandvik’s Group Executive Management. Engström replaces Scot Smith who has now left Sandvik.

Engström, previously President and CEO of the air treatment solutions company Munters, has an extensive industrial background with over a decade’s experience in the Mining and Construction industry.

Engström has several years’ experience with Seco Tools and his career comprises international positions with locations in several continents.

“I have come to the conclusion that a new leadership is needed to develop Sandvik Mining going forward. I am convinced that Lars Engström, whom I know well from Atlas Copco, has the experience and the leadership qualities required for this. At the same time I would like to thank Scot Smith, who leaves Sandvik, for his contributions,” stated Sandvik’s President and CEO Björn Rosengren.
