Alelion Energy Systems (publ) is making management changes for greater focus on customers and market

2019-11-12 - Alelion Energy Systems AB

Alelion Energy Systems AB is now implementing a number of changes in management in order to increase the company’s focus on customers and market and to better coordinate production and product development. These changes involve placing quality and human resources management with the company senior management team, and merging management for product development and production. -Both market and customers are placing increasing demands on quality as well as efficiency and Alelion must continually adapt to these conditions so as to retain and increase our competitiveness, says Åsa Nordström, acting CEO, Alelion Energy Systems.

Lisa Eriksson, currently quality and supplier manager will have the overall responsibility for Quality and Human Resources and with this new post become a member of the senior management team. Lisa will report to the company’s acting CEO, Åsa Nordström.

Fredrik Lüsch will manage the new department Production and Product Development. The organisational changes will take place immediately. Fredrik Sööder, Development Manager since 2014, is leaving Alelion.

–Fredrik has been with us over a long and very eventful period and played an important role when we were making our name as a supplier in the industrial truck segment, says Åsa Nordström. The changes that have occurred in the market over recent years however mean that we must increase our efforts to reach customers in new areas. That is one of the reasons we are making changes to our senior management team.

Alelion Energy Systems has been developing battery systems based on lithium-ion technology since 2006 and initially concentrated on becoming established as a supplier of battery systems to major global industrial truck manufacturers such as Toyota Material Handling and Jungheihrich. As battery technology matured and more manufacturers entered the market basic lithium-ion batteries for industrial trucks became a more standard and volume product. This development led to the major truck manufacturers starting their own battery production through in-sourcing and competing with their own suppliers, among them Alelion with considerable pricing pressure as a result.

To take better advantage of the opportunities offered by the market for lithium-ion technology, Alelion has over the past year initiated a strategic overview and begun looking closely at the segment industrial special vehicles where more complex high tension batteries are required. This segment covering for instance terminal trucks, aircraft bearers and container vehicles, is rapidly and comprehensively turning to electrification to meet heightened environmental demands regarding particles, noise and carbon dioxide.

In order to maintain the advantages of volume and scale Alelion will continue to produce truck batteries for the material handling aftermarket, a market that is growing as more and more truck operators want to change from traditional lead acid batteries to lithium-ion batteries for reasons of both efficiency and environment. This market is reached through independent distributors or partners that today offer customers products, service and also trucks. Over the past year Alelion has signed important contracts for supply of truck batteries to the aftermarket in both Asia and the Middle East, markets where we will continue to expand.
