Following negotiations with the trade unions, we can now announce that Mr. Johan Wiig will be joining as MD of Uddeholms AB, no later than the beginning of June 2019. Mr. Wiig will share the MD role with Mr. Pär Emanuelsson. Uddeholm will therefore be headed by two managing directors from now on.
The exact reporting lines to Mr. Emanuelsson and Mr. Wiig will be announced after the next Board meeting at the end of April and the usual negotiations with the unions.
Until Mr. Wiig takes up his post, Mr. Emanuelsson will serve as acting MD of the company.
