STOCKHOLM, Jan. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Mycronic AB (publ) has grown substantially during the last years, both organically and through acquisitions. In order to prepare for continued profitable growth, a new group structure is implemented in order to achieve the strategic priorities of improving profitability in Assembly Solutions, securing and expanding the position in Pattern Generators and enhancing customer centricity. The new Mycronic organization will be made up of four divisions:

Assembly Solutions High Flex

Focus on high flex assembly markets, primarily in Europe and the US. Includes current SMT and Inspection divisions.

Assembly Solutions High Volume

Focus on high volume markets in Asia. Includes current Dispensing division.

Group management

The composition of group management will be adjusted to reflect the new group structure. New members of the management team will be Ivan Li, Sr VP High Volume and Michael Chalsen, Sr VP Global Technologies. Thomas Stetter will be Sr VP High Flex, whereas Charlott Samuelsson remains Sr VP Pattern Generators. Niklas Edling will be Sr VP Corporate Development and Deputy CEO.
