Fumex gets nominated for Innovation Company of the Year in Skellefteå

The Fumex team is happy to announce that Alvar has nominated us for Innovation Company of the Year. Alvar is the annual business gala in our hometown Skellefteå and the winner will be presented on the 17th of March.

We met with our Technical Manager, Lars Hedlund, to get his reaction to the news.

Hi Lars, how does it feel to be nominated for the Innovation Company of the Year?

It’s a great feeling, and we’re all happy about the nomination. If you think about how much of an innovation-driven city Skellefteå is, being nominated is a real feather in our cap.

Why do you think Skellefteå is such an innovation hub?

Well, we’re not a university town, but we’ve always had great industries here. It has allowed local innovators and smaller companies to support industries with new intelligent technologies and solutions.

It sounds like there’s some tough competition. So, why is Fumex nominated?

We have always been at the forefront of the environmental technology sector. But if we focus on last year’s achievements, we introduced several new market-leading products. We were also selected as a partner to the Luleå University of Technology regarding additive manufacturing (3D printing).

The theme for this year’s Alvar business gala is “Skellefteå as an international business hub.” What opportunities do you see with international companies moving in?

Of course, we want to be a part of the ongoing industrial development in the city. And as a local company with international experience, we can support companies moving in with solutions within our area of expertise. Besides that, we all enjoy seeing our hometown getting the international recognition that it deserves – we are truly an innovative city.

Thank Lars, and best of luck at the gala night!
