Svensson named Marangoni’s Scandinavia retreading sales manager
Marangoni Retreading Systems has added to its European retreading sales and support team with the appointment of Jan-Olof Svensson as its new area sales manager for the Swedish, Danish and Norwegian markets. Svensson joins Marangoni from Bandag, where he spent the last 15 years as sales development manager Sweden. His career within the tyre industry began at Michelin Sweden, and he was later employed as sales manager at Franska Däckimporten AB, an importer of Klebér and Ohtsu Tyres in Sweden.
“Jan-Olof’s professional experience in the sale of truck tyres and his in-depth knowledge of the sector and the Nordic market will certainly help us develop our position and our Ringtread system in this important region”, stated Giuseppe Ferrari, CEO of Marangoni Retreading Systems, when introducing Svensson to the company’s sales team.
Following Germany, Scandinavia is the second-largest pre-cure retreading market in Europe, and the Marangoni Group has a more than 25 per cent market share of the pre-cured retreading segment there. Due to its geographic proximity to Germany and strong winter range focus, the region is managed by the Italian firm’s Marangoni Retreading Systems Deutschland subsidiary, which is located in Hamburg.
“I am very happy to have accepted this opportunity offered by the Marangoni Group at this stage of my professional life,” Svensson commented. “And I hope to be able to help the company develop even further in an area I know very well.”
