Entering 2023 – CEO Anders Hedlund talks about the plans for the new year

We met with Anders Hedlund, CEO at Fumex, to discuss his anticipations for 2023.

You are now entering another year as CEO of Fumex. What feelings do you bring into 2023?

Last year, we had exceptional growth for all of our subsidiaries, and it actually was at an all-time high. So, entering 2023, I have a very good feeling, even though we face some challenges due to what is happening in the world.

What do you believe are the biggest challenges of 2023?

First of all, there’s ongoing inflation which we haven’t had for many years. Secondly, we are affected by the Russian invasion of Ukraine, increasing energy prices, and the shortage of materials. But these challenges aren’t unique for just Fumex, and I firmly believe every company is affected in some capacity.

So, how do we face these challenges?

We will have to work focused and smart like we always do! We have much to look forward to in 2023, and we are no longer as affected by the pandemic as we used to be.

What can we expect from Fumex in 2023?

What I’m looking forward to the most is starting the construction of our new premises. It is set to begin early this summer, and we hope to move in during the second half of 2024! Besides that, we will continue to visit international exhibitions and launch several new products.

And finally, what industry trends do you see?

Due to the continued electrification of vehicles, we will see a reduced need for solutions for exhaust gases, but this is still a couple of years away. In 2023, following the footsteps of the pandemic, there will likely be a continued need for high-quality extraction solutions for the pharmaceutical industry.
