2022: Fumex year in review

We have finally arrived in 2023, a year filled with new opportunities! But before we leave 2022 behind us, we would like to take the time to look back at some of the highlights from the year. There has been a lot going on!

History in the making

The indisputably biggest news of the year was the announcement of the plans for our new facility in Skellefteå. It will be a two-story building of 5,500 square meters that can house both a factory and an office.

– This will be the greatest investment in Fumex history, and we look forward to the opportunity to adapt the facilities to our production and business needs, says Anders Hedlund, CEO at Fumex.

The factory will be ready in the summer of 2024.

Three product releases

During the year, we introduced three new fans to the market. First off, it was the FTE; a radial fan developed to handle larger particles and high concentrations of dust-laden air efficiently.

Secondly, we presented the C 600HT. It is a heat-resistant radial fan for installations that withstands extreme operating temperatures up to +200 °C.

And finally, we launched the FBE in mid-December. The high-efficiency radial fan will be one of the most efficient for this type of application on the market!

Continued R&D work

It has been a busy year for our R&D department, diving into new technologies and innovations. In November, they visited the Luleå University of Technology to learn more about the latest development in 3D printing with laser welding.

Fumex on the big screen

2022 was a big year for us marketing-wise, especially with the release of our brand-new company movie. It was mainly recorded in our hometown of Skellefteå and the headquarters here.

Solutions for unique customer needs

As a company founded in the north of Sweden, supporting those around us is important. In February, we visited our good friend Klas Nilsson, a professional skier from Skellefteå who, in 2021, won Red Bull Nordenskiöldsloppet, the world’s longest ski race. He uses a custom-made extraction arm from Fumex in the team’s ski waxing truck to take care of dangerous chemicals.

Customer presence in Germany

During the pandemic years, we didn’t get the chance to visit all of the trade fairs we wanted. Fortunately, things have changed for the better, and this year, Fumex went on tour once again.

Representatives from our German subsidiary visited four of Germany’s biggest trade fairs within the industrial segment – METAV in Düsseldorf, ACHEMA in Frankfurt, POWTECH in Nürnberg, and finally, EuroBLECH in Hannover!

It was truly amazing to meet old friends, new partners, and customers; we look forward to seeing you again next year!

Visiting our offices 

In the fall of 2022, our Sweden office flew to Frankfurt to visit Fumex’s German subsidiary. It was a great weekend with interesting insights about how Fumex German does business. And yes, of course, our Swedes also got to do some sightseeing!

A few months later, the Swedish office stood host for Movex, our American subsidiary. We got to show them the plans for our new facilities, product news, and upcoming projects.
