As market activity and interest towards our sustainable solutions are accelerating, we want to ensure that our commercial leadership, structures and processes are fit for our growth ambitions”, says Tapio Kolunsarka, President & CEO of Evac.

“During the discussions with the leaders and owners of Evac, I grew more and more impressed and energized by the vision, the ambition and the focus Evac has. Our customers are not past the pandemic troubles yet, but the trendlines of increased transparency, a step up in sustainability, and a call for industry leadership are not going away – and Evac has amazing potential to win big! I am humbled and honored to join Evac at this important time,” says Björn Ullbro.

The new Marine & Offshore business area comprises all Evac technologies for marine and offshore customers.
