Björn Rosengren, President and CEO of Sandvik AB, Stockholm, Sweden, has informed the Chairman of the Sandvik Board that he intends to resign and will leave the company as of February 1, 2020. He will now join ABB, a multinational automation corporation headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland.

Johan Molin, Chairman of the Board for Sandvik, stated, “Björn Rosengren has, since he joined Sandvik in November 2015, established a solid decentralised business model for the company and made the organisation more flexible and efficient.”

“The board is very grateful for his and all the employees’ work during these years,” he continued. “We will initiate the process to assign a very experienced and competent industrial leader that can succeed Björn in the role as President and CEO and continue to develop the company even further.”

“This has not been an easy decision,” commented Rosengren. “Sandvik is a great company with a lot of future potential and I will continue to lead the organisation with a strong commitment until the end of January.”

Powder Metallurgy:The original net-shape production process

Powder Metallurgy components are relied upon by a wide variety of manufacturing industries, from automotive to power tools, household appliances, chemical engineering, filtration and more.

The main reason for the technology’s success is its cost-effectiveness at producing high volumes of net-shape components, combined with its ability to allow the manufacture of products that, because of the production processes, simply cannot be manufactured by other methods.

To discover more about how the technology has revolutionised component production, browse our Introduction to Powder Metallurgy.
