Fumex nomination

Fumex AB is nominated for “Export company of the year 2018” at Alvargalan. A message received with pride.

– The fact that Fumex – with headquarters, production and ownership in Skellefteå – has been nominated as export company of the year, is of course both pleasing and honorable as well as inspiring for future investments, says Anders Hedlund, Managing Director.

– Today, 70 % of our sales are exported outside of Sweden. To continue the growth in the export market, we keep investing in our sales companies in the US, Germany and China. These investments are expected to provide a good development in the coming years. The prerequisites for these necessary investments stems from a strong domestic market with a stable base and anchoring in Skellefteå.

No scouting, no clue

Export manager Stefan Johansson was unable to attend the nomination as he was visiting a customer in India.

– Flexibility is one of our company’s strengths and we aim to get better each day, Anders continues. We do not buy products in China, we sell. The same goes for India. If we don’t scout we don’t have a clue.

Motivation of the jury:

“A company that springs on and blows borders – both economical and geographical. With a revenue recently surpassing 100 million and with a 70 percent export rate, the company is certainly worth a nomination for this year’s export price.”

Winners of each class will be presented during the gala evening held January 19, 2018. Other nominees in the export class are Valutec and Franke Futurum.
