Bulten has appointed Fredrik Bäckström as new Senior Vice President Production, effective 1st December this year.
Bäckström will be a member of Bulten's Executive Management Team, succeeding Jörg Neveling who will retire 31st October.
He joins Bulten from Arcam AB where he has been Vice President Product Supply since 2013.
Bäckström holds an MSc in Mechanical Engineering, previously taking up several leading positions within Poseidon Diving System AB, Carmel Pharma AB, Pågen/Pååls Bakery and Dayco Automotive AB amongst others.
Anders Nyström, President and CEO of Bulten, commented on the appointment: "I am very pleased with the recruitment of Fredrik Bäckström. He has a solid track record of transforming industrial value chains and will be instrumental in making Bulten an even more competitive fastener supplier.
"I also want to thank Jörg Neveling for his great contribution in developing Bulten to a leading position in the market for fasteners."
Only a few days ago, Bulten announced a plan to streamline its German unit in order to adapt to market conditions, which will culminate in the loss of around 50 jobs.
