Thomas Karlsson hired as Managing Director at Element Logic Sweden AB
Thomas Karlsson will from the 8th of January be leading Element Logic Sweden, one of the fastest growing European system integrators of material handling solutions. A well-known business man will be at the forefront of building the Swedish organisation further.
After several years of strong growth in the Nordic countries Element Logic has decided to hire a Managing Director in Sweden. Element Logic has been active in Sweden since 2005 and now counts about 20 people. Thomas Karlsson will lead the organisation further.
Karlsson has 17 years of experience from different positions at Swisslog and for the last 2 years he has been leading TGW in Scandinavia.
He will strengthen the position of AutoStore, Element Logic’s unique robot storage solution focusing on warehousing and logistics companies, in a growing Swedish market.
“I am looking forward to building Element Logic’s Swedish organization further. I see a huge potential for AutoStore, which I consider to be the market’s most compact and flexible warehouse solution“, says Thomas Karlsson.
E-commerce creates new storage needs
AutoStore is a unique robot storage solution that can be tailored to the customer’s needs. In Sweden, AutoStore is already a key success factor in companies such as Jollyroom, Babyshop, Boozt, Intersport, Blåkläder and many more.
“The recent years of formidable growth in both Norway and Sweden tell us that time is ripe for building the Swedish organisation further and create even more growth in the Swedish market. The increasing e-commerce demands creates the need for efficient and intelligent warehouse solutions, and we believe Element Logic can deliver, “says Håvard Hallås, Chief Sales Officer in Element Logic.
Swedish e-commerce increased by almost 16 % in 2017 and is predicted to grow 15 % in 2018. E-commerce now accounts for 8,7 % of the total retail industry in Sweden, and due to digitalization, everything goes faster, and demands and expectations are increasing.
The online retail industry Scandinavia was worth about 67 billion Swedish kronor, or 6.7 billion Euros in 2018. “This makes our commitment in Sweden even more valuable”, Hallås adds.
Since 1985, Element Logic has been one of the Nordic region’s leading system integrators of material handling solutions. In just a few years between 2014 and 2017, the company doubled its revenue.
