AIM Sweden, based in Frösön, Sweden, has announced that Stefan Thundal will become CEO on February 1st, following the retirement of Göran Elovsson. Although Elovsson leaves the CEO position, he will continue to support the company, providing guidance over the next six months and helping open doors on new strategic collaborations, primarily in the US.

Thundal has spent most of his career in various commercial and strategic positions in high-tech industries with global operations. He has had roles at companies such as Volvo Aero (now GKN Aerospace), Powercell, Arcam/GE Additive and now, for a number of years, at AIM Sweden.

“I have been with the company for several years already. I know the industry and the team quite well and I really look forward continuing to develop our business in industrial 3D printing,” stated Thundal. “For most of my career, I have built strong long-term partnerships with international customers in various industries such as aviation, orthopedics and process industries. I think these experiences will be valuable also as CEO of AIM Sweden.”

In autumn 2022, the company successfully carried out a new share issue which, through a solid commitment from the company’s owners, is said to lay the foundation for continued expansion.

Board chairman Anna Ragén added, “To have Stefan Thundal in charge of the company in this expansive phase is extra positive. We are very happy that Stefan assumes the position as CEO of AIM Sweden. He is well-qualified, well-known in the industry, successful and has great trust among employees.”

“We see great opportunities in 2023,” concluded Thundal. “We expect continued growth in orthopaedics, as well as strengthening our position as the leading supplier of 3D printed tools for moulded fibre. We will also expand our production area, continue hiring and add a complementary printing technology.”
