Finland’s oldest industrial and medical gas supplier, Woikoski, has re-appointed Clas Palmberg as its new Managing Director (MD).
Its most recent leader, Kalevi Korjalan, who was the first MD from outside of the family-run business has retired, with this new appointment taking effect as of 1st April 2016.
Palmberg previously led Woikoski in the same role from 1977-2012. He began his career with Geigy AG in Switzerland, before working with Nokia in Finland and then as a Woikoski consultant in both Sweden and Greece.
It is understood that Palmberg will also remain as Woikoski’s Chairman of the Board throughout this appointment.
Oy Woikoski Ab, Finland’s oldest industrial and medical gas supplier, could slash employment and close offices after it announced the beginning of co-operation negotiations following unstable market conditions.
