Swedish HVAC company LK is increasing its presence on the German market by opening its own office and warehouse in Bad Oeynhausen. LK has appointed an operative manager for the German operation and is planning to appoint a further 5-10 employees in 2018.
LK has developed valves and system solutions for the German HVAC market for 25 years. Now the company is taking the next step by opening its own office with sales, customer support and warehouse for the Hydronic Solutions business area. Operations will start up in the first half of 2018, and LK initially expects to appoint 5-10 employees.
The operative manager of LK Armatur Deutschland GmbH will be André Zimmermann. He is 47 and has previously held managerial positions, among them with German valve manufacturer GSR Ventiltechnik. He was most recently with the Swedish Hultafors Group where he successfully participated in building and developing a well-established company with operations throughout Germany.
"I'm pleased and proud by the confidence shown in me to head and develop LK's German business. LK is a stable company with profound technical expertise and a long-term business strategy. We want to be closer to our German customers in order to provide them with better service and shorter delivery times," André Zimmermann says.
"This is a decisive step to gain a proper foothold and exploit the significant potential our products have on the important German market," says Magnus Eriksson, CEO of LK.
