As part of a strategy to increase its presence on the North American market, Swedish leading manufacturer of high-strength stainless steel fasteners Bumax has appointed Bo Andersson to a new position as business development manager for the United States.

“We see the U.S.A. as a strategic focus market for Bumax with huge potential for our premium stainless steel fasteners in a variety of industries,” says Lars Holm, managing director at Bumax. “We will increase our efforts to capture new clients and new projects in North America—in sectors like marine, oil and gas, energy, defense, pulp and paper, and construction where durable and high-strength fasteners are increasingly required.”

In his new position, Andersson will be responsible for growing the American market and making sure that Bumax continues to provide excellent customer service as a “solutionist.”

“I am happy to be part of the Bumax team and look forward to contributing to the expansion of the company’s footprint in North America,” says Andersson. “I am especially excited about the prospects we have here in our American manufacturing market—in particular our ability to offer the world’s strongest stainless bolt.”
