Transition of CEO at Ålö

Johan P Schlyter has decided to leave his position as CEO of Ålö for personal reasons. His last day of employment will be on May 11, 2015. The Board has started the search for his replacement. Niklas Åström has been appointed Deputy CEO, Niklas will also take over the role as acting CEO starting May 12, until a replacement for CEO is onboard. 

During Johan’s three years at Ålö, the company has developed in a positive way in many areas. The highly successful Versa-X loader was developed and launched. The cooperation with several OEM customers has been extended, and a new logistics and supply chain structure in Europe has been developed. Mr. Schlyter has also been instrumental in tackling the adverse market situations that Ålö has been facing since the summer of 2014, and the company is now performing well despite the current low volumes. The Board and owners are grateful for Mr. Schlyter’s many contributions and wish him success in his future endeavors.
