Ahlsell appoints new administration director

Rune Flengsrud was appointed as the new administration director of Ahlsell Norge AS on 1st October, which automatically makes him a member of the board at the parent company Ahlsell AB.

For a long time Flengsrud was employed at Schneider Electric, where he was currently responsible for a turnover of NOK 10 bn (approx. EUR 1 bn) at the Scandinavian and Baltic branch. It is hoped at Ahsell that he will bring a more offensive orientation of the company’s own business.

Ahlsell, one of the leading technical trading companies in Scandinavia, employs approx. 4,800 people and in 2014 it had a turnover of approx. SEK 22 bn (EUR 2.3 bn).
