We welcome Peter Håkansson to our sales team
We are happy to present a new member of the Roll-o-Matic sales team: Peter Håkansson, who has been selling converting equipment for more than 30 years
Peter Håkansson studied mechanical engineering and started his career designing hydraulic baling press machines. After a few years, only 23-years-old, he changed track and started as a service engineer in a company that manufactures converting machines for the plastic industry. And a few years later, he entered the path that he would stick to the following 32 years: sales.
“I love the sales process. Meeting new people for the first time, for example at an exhibition, learning what they produce, considering how we can help optimizing their production. And then establishing a relationship, visiting the company and persisting, until I make the sale. Sometimes it takes a few months, sometimes many years. I never give up”, Peter says.
Peter is also a veteran when it comes to exhibitions. In 2019, he participated in his 12th K exhibition. He is still fascinated by all the innovative solutions shown in the fair. But most of all, he enjoys the chance to meet all the contacts he has made in the industry along the years.
Now, after 33 years in the same organization, Peter decided it was time to try something new and joined the Roll-o-Matic team:
“It has been a very positive start. I can feel everyone here is committed to give our customers the best quality. I’ve been met with warmth and openness. Everyone is doing their best to integrate me in the company as fast as possible. Now I look forward to meeting customers and talking solutions”, Peter declares.
The positive feeling about Peter’s start at Roll-o-Matic is mutual:
“We are very happy to have Peter on board. He is a very skilled and experienced sales manager, and he has a lot to contribute with his expertise. I think he is adapting fast to his new working environment. It feels like he has been part of the team for a long time”, says Birger Sørensen, Roll-o-Matic’s Managing Director.
