“I am very excited to embark on this journey, and together with my colleagues continue to build the industrial automation offering and contribute to the development of both new and existing companies. We see many trends supporting increased automation in the global industry, and I look forward to leveraging on these opportunities and contribute to achieving our high set ambitions,” says Mattias Jaginder.
