Fredrik Calenius will continue to lead Procurement for Teknos and is appointed Group Procurement Director. Fredrik will report to Sameli Hakola and, as a result, will not continue as a member of the TMT.

The Teknos Supply Chain function will enable end-to-end leadership of the whole supply chain, further enhancing decision-making, time to execution, end-to-end process optimisation and cost efficiency.

This change will help us fulfil our vision to be a sustainable coating solutions provider close to customers and further develop our customer-centric Supply Chain operating model.

All to make sure we make the world last longer.
