Carl Berglund takes charge of Uniwater Products – will focus on business area growth

The former managing director of Ibeco, Carl Berglund, is now taking full charge of the Uniwater group’s business area Uniwater Products. Consequently, he’s leaving his position as managing director of Ibeco and will now focus on developing the business area through organic growth as well as new acquisitions. Uniwater is one of the leading Nordic groups specializing in water and wastewater infrastructure solutions.

The Uniwater group consists of four business areas; Pumping Stations, Automation, Water Treatment and Products. The group has now appointed Carl Berglund as business area manager of Uniwater Products.
– We can see that we’ll have strong growth within this business area in the next few years. That is why we need a dedicated person to take charge of our growth strategy. Carl possesses significant knowledge about our business activities and has been Ibeco’s managing director for twelve years. He’s essentially an entrepreneur that has built a number of companies, and he also has the necessary strategic understanding to develop and create growth within a business area. A couple of weeks ago, we acquired ABAT, which has been placed in the Uniwater Products business area, and we have more acquirements to look forward to that will strengthen our portfolio, says Fredrik Jonsson, group CEO of Uniwater.

Until now, Carl Berglund has been the managing director of Ibeco and was present during the time that the company joined the Uniwater group. He has worked with the Uniwater Products business area while managing Ibeco for a period of time. He is now leaving his post as managing director in order to fully focus on taking charge of the business area and its growth.

– It’s going to be extremely exciting and inspiring to pour all my energy into building Uniwater Products. I’ve been managing director of Ibeco for a long time, and I believe that passing the leadership baton will evolve the company as well as myself. I enjoy developing entrepreneurial organizations, and I am very familiar with the opportunities and challenges that these types of businesses face as they expand. That’s why I think that I might prove to be an asset for our companies within the business area, in addition to the group as a whole, says Carl Berglund, business area manager of Uniwater Products.

The strategy is clear. The Uniwater group will expand and generate growth organically and through acquisitions. The business area, Uniwater Products, is one of the business areas that can look forward to several new acquisitions in the near future. Most recently, the company ABAT AB was acquired just weeks ago, and is now included in the business area.
