Johan Petersson is quickly getting into the swing of things since taking on the position of KORE Sales Manager in October 2017. Petersson heads sales in France and Spain for KORE, i.e. pre-machined and ready-to-install floor and wall panel solutions developed for the interiors of light transport vehicles, such as vans.
Petersson’s first months working for Koskisen have been a whirlwind of activity, getting to know both the products and his new employer. He says that after getting off to a good start, he now has a good understanding of the company’s way of working. “Koskisen is an international player, but they still operate like a family-run company,” says a pleased Petersson.
He also has no complaints about the products. Petersson is delighted with the high quality of the KORE solutions he sells and says they are a hot item in the market. There is demand for high-quality and durable Finnish birch plywood in the world – and there is no shortage of vans that need furnishing also in the market area Petersson heads. With several years’ experience of the transport vehicle industry and van interiors already under his belt, he is no stranger to the KORE product family.
Petersson, who studied international trade in France and currently lives very close to Paris, has Swedish-French roots and is happy to have the opportunity to use Swedish in his work.
In autumn 2017, other major steps were taken in Koskisen’s KORE business: The new plant expansion and machine installations were wrapped up in Toporow, Poland. They have been machining wall and floor boards in the new premises since late autumn. The expansion enables faster delivery times to customers and raising the production capacity to a new level. “With this new, larger production space and modern production machinery, we will be able to even double or triple our production volumes in 2018. A main goal of the investment was also to speed up the order-delivery process and reduce material waste by taking advantage of the latest technology,” says Mikko Tarula, Director for KORE and Poland.
Koskisen KORE offers customers ready-made interior solutions for light transport vehicles, such as vans. The product range includes, among other products, pre-machined and ready-to-install floor and wall panels and wheel-arch covers for different car brands.
