The news was released internally in late August and now, in mid September, the change is about to come into effect. Martin Olsson, currently the Technical Director at Nimo-KG, takes over as Managing Director as Johan Bergman leaves to take on new challenges. “I feel very excited and extremely honoured,” says Martin Olsson, Managing Director at Nimo-KG.
Nimo-KG is the technical specialist that, for the past five decades, has become a household name in the international food industry with their equipment for internal product handling. Lifts, tipping devices, weighing and batching stations are a few examples from the broad product range – and each year some 200 machines and more than a thousand stainless steel containers are delivered to customers worldwide.
Johan Bergman has led the company since 2005, made it an obvious procurement choice and delivered over 1.500 machines – but will now move on to other challenges. And therefore, Martin Olsson takes over as Managing Director in mid September. Martin has a long history at Nimo-KG and started as a designer as early as 1998. Since 2007 he has held the title of Technical Director, and in the new role he now plans to increase the overall technical focus even further.
“I have had a long career at Nimo-KG, I am familiar with every detail of the company and it is hugely inspiring to have been given this chance. Our brand is strong and stable in the lifting and tipping equipment market and my main aim will be to cement this further. I will work hard to make Nimo-KG the first and obvious tech partner choice for the food industry, to an even greater extent than today. Both in terms of standard machines and customized special solutions,” says Martin Olsson.
What does this mean to your customers?
“In general: Business as usual. I will now receive a number of new responsibilities and first and foremost I need to get acquainted with my new position.”
Nimo-KG is a subsidiary of Nimo-Verken, based in Hova, Sweden – best known for its laundry related products, which are produced for several of the largest appliance suppliers. Timo Taiminen, one of the board members and also the CEO of Nimo-Verken, was involved in choosing the new Managing Director at Nimo-KG.
“Electing Martin Olsson as Managing Director is right in line with our strategy to further enhance Nimo-KG’s offer to the customer base, which has expanded significantly during Johan Bergman’s leadership. Martin is a skilled technician with straightforward management style, which makes him perfect for the job. This will result in an even greater focus on the kind of smart tailored-made solutions that have made Nimo-KG a well known name in the industry. Both domestically and internationally, says Timo Taiminen.
