Meet our Director: Jonas Hagstedt
Jonas’ fascination with the wire industry literally runs in his blood as his parents owned Lämneå Bruk. So, when 7-year old Jonas was asked what he wanted to become when he grows up, he would have answered: “President of Lämneå Bruk AB.”
And here we are, decades later, with Jonas not only being the President since 1989 but also the brain behind Lämneå Bruk’s innovative designs.
As a teenager, Jonas’ started at the bottom, cleaning the facilities and handling inventory, and worked later in production. When he was as young as 12 years old, his parents send him to the US to learn how to draw wire, manufacture dies and to improve his English. In the early 80’s Jonas then advanced to Sales Engineer and was responsible for the American and German customers. He was even based in Germany for a few years where he started up machines for the German customers, drew wire and acquired valuable German language skills.
Jonas’ is a true entrepreneur with a vision to build a strong, stable, and competitive company to provide a safe place to work for the people in the region. Under his can-do leadership, Lämneå Bruk developed from a financially struggling company to a successful, world-known, reliable supplier of wire machinery.
Autonomic work processes, fact-based decision making, a focus on teamwork, flexibility and a strong customer-focus are the pillars of Lämneå Bruk’s fruitful business model. On top of that, Jonas is proud to say that all machines are manufactured in our own workshop and therefore are truly “Made in Sweden”.
