Once again nominated Export company of the year

Fumex AB is nominated for “Export company of the year 2019” at Alvargalan. A message received with pride.

– The fact that Fumex – with headquarters, production and ownership in Skellefteå – once again has been nominated for 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.


Continued stable growth

Export Manager Stefan Johansson has just returned from a visit to China, where Fumex Trading Shanghai has exhibited at the internationally-respected laboratory fair Analytica. Stefan also got the opportunity to visit a number of customers during his trip, and says;

– We see a continued stable growth in China and other Asian markets, such as India, Korea, and Japan.

– 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. If we don’t scout we don’t have a clue.


Motivation of the jury:

“Through the proximity and cooperation, the company has taken the world by storm. They have subsidiaries in China, the United States and Germany, and have distributors worldwide, which has led to a steady increase in sales both in Sweden and abroad.”

Winners of each class will be presented during the gala evening held January 18, 2019. Other nominees in the export class are Megadoor/Assa Abloy and North Kingdom.
