Scanreco, a Swedish manufacturer of crane radio remote control systems, has hired a new president, Jason Looman, for its North American operations. The previous president, Magnus Friberg, remains on the Board of Scanreco North America.
According to Scanreco, Looman has extensive experience in the OEM industry. Previously he served as president at separation technology solutions specialist Steinert US for nine years. Prior to that he had an active role in starting up radio remote control specialist HBC Radiomatic in the United States.
“I have followed the business lately and I’m impressed by the way the Scanreco product line has evolved and I understand that the clients appreciate the reliability and the flexibility,” said Looman. “It’s a growing industry in North America. To me the ability to be part of a growing business is what I find most thrilling… When I left the industry ten years ago, we had to persuade people that we had a better solution. It’s not like that now. It’s more about increasing the distribution, improving our training and service capacities – and to step up the sales. We need to expand the sales team, and I’m looking forward to being a part of our great team.”
