I have spent all my life working in the Swedish steel industry with companies such as ASEA, Surahammars Bruk and Uddeholm Strip Steel. Mainly as a “Process Developer Engineer” of new steel materials. In 1985 I founded SwedevAB (SwedCut) together with three partners, developing and producing knives for the tissue industry, which expanded in 1990 to also include doctor blades. In 1993 I took over as “Managing Director” at SwedevAB, and then sold the company in 2001 after big expansions, ending my employment in 2004.
My previous work experience comes entirely from Miller Graphics in Sunne. I have worked in the graphic, printing and packaging industry since 1973. Most of this time employed as the “General Market and Sales Manager”, working on a worldwide market with products and services such as repro, printing plates, laser engraving, doctor blades, sleeves and aniloxes.
My graphic career started when I in 1977 joined Åkerlund & Rausing (later Amcor Flexibles Lund) as gravure printer and printing supervisor. For 3 years during that time I also worked abroad starting up a gravure printing department at Packages Ltd in Pakistan and A&R Packaging Ltd in India.
In 2002 I joined Swedev AB as “Technical Support & Sales Manager”, servicing gravure & flexo printers with doctor blade support on a worldwide basis. In 2008 I joined Miller Graphics Scandinavia in Sunne, as “Technical Sales Manager”, mainly for the Millblade doctor blade products. Also here I worked on worldwide basis.
After a number of shorter spells of employment at different companies I started as the financial manager of Miller Graphics in Sunne, at the end of the 1980s. I stayed there for a rather long time and was also the financial manager of the Miller Group for many years. In 2009 I started my own company, dealing with accounting for small and medium-sized companies. I am still active with my company in excess of my involvement in PrimeBlade Sweden AB.
I spent approximately five years working for Swedev AB. My main responsibilities there were customer support, quotations, ordering and logistics, some times I was involved in the final doctor blade quality control. Since then I have been working with similar tasks for companies in Sunne, however the focus has been on economics, logistics, export and customer support.
I have been working at Brobygrafiska Utbildning (Broby Graphical Education) for 16 years, as a Technical Manager, responsible for all technical equipment and also giving support to students and staff within printing and packaging education. Earlier at the school I was a Project Manager responsible for EU-founded projects, where the projects aimed to develop the printing and prototype environment at Brobygrafiska Utbildning.
I’m also in the board of directors at SweFlex, the Swedish Flexograpy Association, who aims to promote the flexographic business in Sweden, and I’m also in a working group looking on to start up a new umbrella organization for all the national flexographic associations within Europe, called FTA Europe.
My previous employer was Miller Graphics Scandinavia AB, where I was working in the sales department, mainly with the doctor blade and end seal products. Supporting our customers and agents worldwide with the requested information, it also included the purchasing of these products from our different suppliers.
