“It’s great to join a company like Magsort, that has such ambitious growth targets in the green transition business.
I hope my experience from leading both a big expert organization and a machinery company, can also help Magsort reach its immense potential.
Founder Niklas Törnkvist, as the previous CEO, has done excellent work by bringing the company to this phase. It’s great that he will actively continue to support the growth in the future as well.
I feel enthusiastic to join the global decarbonization mission of Magsort, helping the two biggest CO2 emitting industries, Steel and Cement, to decarbonize their production. On top of that, there’s a strong ongoing business in the third major customer segment of Waste-to-Energy plants, that I’m excited to continue.”

“I’m happy that we’ve found Kalle to join Magsort and I’m looking forward to working with him going forward. He’ll bring to our management team tons of experience in leading global process industry companies to green tech possibilities, and how to engineer and implement large scale industrial projects.”
