Åkerströms will undergo a transformation, focusing on its role as a specialised sales company. Core functions such as production and development will be integrated into the Allgon Group’s production division. Allgon is the parent company of both Åkerströms and Tele Radio, which provides remote control systems for overhead cranes.

Stiwne’s successor, Hans Åkerblom, joined Åkerströms in 2021 and prior to that, held various managerial roles at specialised steel manufacturer SSAB. He moves from his position as sales director.

“Leading Åkerströms has been an immensely rewarding and thrilling journey, working alongside our exceptional team. Simultaneously, we’ve tirelessly pursued our goal of establishing Allgon as a global industry frontrunner,” said Stiwne.

“This transition of leadership to Hans is an integral component of the strategic direction we’ve been shaping for quite some time within Åkerströms’ parent company, Allgon.”

Åkerblom commented: “It is my pleasure to continue Anna’s work. Allgon offers me every opportunity to develop my capabilities within a challenging industry and at a leading, global company. By consolidating resources and expanding collaborations between the brands, we can continue to strengthen the market position of Åkerströms’ brand outside the Nordic countries.”

Ola Samelius, chairman of the Board of Åkerströms and CEO of Allgon, added: “We want to extend a warm thank you to Anna for her valuable work during her time as CEO of Åkerströms. Under her leadership, the company has flourished with increased efficiency and profitability. Åkerströms’ growth and profitability have consistently exceeded industry averages every year, and our organisation has been strengthened. We have full confidence that Hans Åkerblom will build upon this robust foundation and continue to realise our ambitious growth plans.”

Åkerströms’ product line-up includes radio control solutions for cranes.
