1 Jul 2021
Bruks Siwertell Group has appointed Larisa Gyllenrapp as its new President, Wood Technology Division. She takes over from Jonas Fack who has assumed his new role as President, Bruks Siwertell AB and Port Technology Division, Bruks Siwertell Group, effective 1st July.
“Our Wood Technology Division is going from strength to strength,” says Peter Jonsson, CEO, Bruks Siwertell Group. “It was established following the merger of Bruks and Siwertell in 2018, and has continued to develop in a very positive way, under the leadership of Jonas for the last few years.
“Jonas, with his broad business knowledge of product and system development, has positioned our Wood Technology Division as a leading supplier of wood-processing equipment,” notes Jonsson. “Customers benefit from the advantages of a wider organization and make use of the Group’s natural synergies, resources, knowledge and expertise for all wood-processing and dry bulk material handling needs.
“With her extensive knowledge and years of experience in the wood industries, holding previous managerial roles for BillerudKorsnäs, Mondi Group and Assi Domän, I have no doubt that Larisa will take the division forward, forging a path to even greater market impact and securing our preparation for future demands,” he adds.
After more than 100 years in the wood industry and an equally pioneering presence in the dry bulk material handling market, Bruks Siwertell has delivered and installed thousands of products that serve global supply chains from forests, fields, quarries and mines, through to manufacturing, mills, power plants and ports.
“Our wood-processing and dry bulk handling equipment serves industries with long traditions, but is also part of their sustainable future,” concludes Jonsson.
In their new roles, both Fack and Gyllenrapp will have the task of upholding the strong product brands in Bruks and Siwertell, as part of Bruks Siwertell Group, and will spearhead an ambitious agenda of digitalization, innovation, and shortened delivery times through capitalizing on the advantages of standardization.
