Hi Ulf, what do you do in your current role?
I have overall responsibility for the smooth operation of our site and production here at Åshammar. This includes everything from ensuring we have the production capacity and flow to meet the needs of our customers and the market, to managing personnel and recruitment.
Tell us about your career
Before BUMAX, I was a Production and Technical Manager at Ericsson for about 15 years. My academic background and early career were related to electrical engineering.
What do you like about your job?
My role is extremely stimulating as I have a very broad range of duties. One minute I’m working with a production challenge, the next with the BUMAX strategy as part of the Management Team. I also like the fact that there are always lots of things happening every day.
What is the best thing about working at BUMAX?
As BUMAX is a medium-size company, it is possible to know all your colleagues personally and to fully understand all areas of our production and business. Another thing I like with BUMAX is that our owner Bufab gives us a great deal of autonomy and the conditions to manage a successful business.
How would you like to further develop at BUMAX?
I feel I am continuously developing together with the business as we further refine our production processes and develop new products. We have begun a long-term investment plan at our factory here in Åshammar, which will continue to renew our facilities and production for the next seven years or so. This involves investing in new machines and adapting to future market trends.
What would you like to achieve at BUMAX?
As the person with the main responsibility for developing our factory at Åshammar into an even more modern and efficient facility, I would like to continue this journey.
What do you like to do in your free time?
I enjoy skiing in the winter – mainly cross-country skiing – and mountain biking in the summer. Of course, I also enjoy spending time with my family.
